  1. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Colour: white wine
    Nose: meaty smokiness; smoked bacon. Hay, grassy tones with peat (the dried stuff, not the smoky stuff), bog - with a coastal seabreeze.
    Taste: dry and ashy smoke. Hay, lemongrass, white pepper, and a whiff of bitter. Mouthfeel: funny enough it's light around the tongue and in the middle of the mouth, but the walls of the mouth feel like they are coated with a kind of carboleum.
    Finish: some yellow fruitiness coming forward: yellow apples. Quite chewy, and linger medium long with a pleasant smokiness and a hint of grass.

    Very nicely balanced smoky Ardmore, though you can taste that it is relatively young.

    25-points score: Nose: 22 / Taste: 21 / Finish: 21 / Balance: 22.

    Tasted 31/10/2019 in a 3006 Whisky line-up (WB ID's 23887 / 102560 / 102559 / 103073).

    Second in CS afternoon. Not a fan of cask strength and not a fan of Ardmore, that promises a lot of good. In serious nosing glass, nevertheless.
    Given the ABV a modest blow to the nose; immediately peat, but no clouds of peat campfire.
    Tastes like Caol Ila. Immediately and emphatically. Faint citrus aroma in the aftertaste.
    With a splash of water and patience there is a bit more detail in the taste - strawberry! -, a spicy edge with some mint breaks through that I like.
    All in all little remarkable and soon forgotten dram. Still not a fan of Ardmore.

  8. YosemiteSam scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A lot of alcohol, but due to its young age just a little too little character. The price / quality ratio is great.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Bacon, smoke and hay
    • Taste
      83 83
      Again smoky, hay, citrus, malty and a little pepper in the background.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The medium to long finish is smoky, citrus, grass

  9. Abtbernardus scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A beautiful and affordable Ardmore that, with a fairly high alcohol percentage of 61%, releases a lot of tastes and smells.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Charcoal and smokiness, also with sea salt. I also have the weird habit of taking my nose again in the dried-out glass the next morning. There I also discover some sweets, something of sweets. Also some citrus fruits. And something of spring, call it blossoms.
    • Taste
      85 85
      A taste bomb that overwhelms you, especially the medicinal tones dominate. Also some citrus fruits. Smoky flavors continue to dominate.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Long finish, especially smoky
