Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 1998 GM

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The fear that 43% are too lax has not been confirmed, especially on the second sip of this Ardmore is powerful enough to show an interesting sweet-spicy spectrum of flavors. 87-88P.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Homemade redcurrant juice, a clear beeswax note, block malt, damp forest soil, delicate bacon note, but also amarettini.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Unbelievably gentle in the mouth, yet with a viscous fullness with a very elegant fruity-spicy sweetness, like in honey-sweet bacon plums, with chewing also lemon thyme.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is a bit too gentle, but still lightly astringent the oak flashes as well as the fruitiness of a well-selected sherry barrel.
