  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Perfectly passable Ardmore but little in the way of surprises
    • Nose
      81 81
      sharp, citric
    • Taste
      83 83
      warm, syrupy, peat rears its nature
    • Finish
      79 79
      medium; quite a lot of wood mixed in with the peat and the tang

  2. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Very obviously Ardmore, but in a very pleasant way. All the best characteristics of the distillery's bourbon cask matured whiskies.
    • Nose
      Smoked dried meat, and vanilla and sweet mixed grain bread.
    • Taste
      Peat smoked apples, peat smoked honey, malt.
    • Finish
      Peat smoked chocolate and mixed grain muesli.

    CASK No. 66.112
    Peated
    Smoky, sweet, spicy, salty popcorn

    A sweet floral slightly herbal peat smoke wafted out of the glass like singed gorse and lavender bushes next to a buttery fish smoke of grilled kippers and pan-seared scallops with lemon. The taste neat initially had plenty of smoke and salty seawater whilst in the finish hickory smoked almonds and star anise. When adding water we grilled pork sausages with pepper and sage over an open fire using driftwood and peat. On the palate we were now roasting marshmallows whilst eating a bowl of peat smoked, honey sweetened, cayenne pepper spiced and sea salted popcorn making this a truly moreish experience.
