Well, what should I say. Normally, young whiskys are not that interesting to me, but I had a good feeling about it. It was not me! The nose is a bit reluctant in the beginning but after a few minutes it opens up nicely and everything is perfectly coordinated. The light smoke matches perfectly with the notes of raspberries and cherries that the sherry barrel has delivered. The vanilla and the sweet caramel are also present. The alcohol carries all the splendor on a cool crisp bed. It tickles slightly in the nose. Then this note that I like so much and know only of old whisky, this note the other connoisseurs probably call sulfur and I feel just as pleasant and above all as mature. Funny at 7 years. In the mouth, the alcohol is noticeably there, no question. The smoke, or rather the ash note, is very subtle and does not jump directly at you. But she mixes beautifully with that power and the sweetness of the Ardmore. He could be a little bit creamier. But that's just sensory. He is full of my taste! And he is dangerously tasty. Although the alcohol is noticeably there, it does not disturb the enjoyment in any way. I want to suck more and more sips in my mouth ... there are 2 cl quickly gone. The finish is beautiful and not too long ... For a long time now a whisky that has picked me up. Therefore earns 91 points ... I also do not want to say that he would have been even better if he had stayed longer in the barrel ... maybe he would have become even more "quiet", but he would also have lost this beautiful smoke .. So he fits as he is. greetings J.
