    Similar to Maltman's seven-year 2010s (Sherry Cask), this eight-year-old from Port Hogshead has a lot to offer.
    Of course, he lacks in complexity but also this barrel seems to have been very potent, which makes him very complacent.

      Some smoke and immediately many red fresh fruits, such as elderberry, blackberry and raspberry.
      Also gooseberry is there ... a certain acidity is unmistakable, but at the same time a nice sweetness.
      Then the fruits fade into the background and the Ardmore workshop smell is there.
      The best way to describe it is ... the smell that comes from hitting a stone with a hammer and creating sparks. It reminds me of sulfur but is different.
      Rusty metal lying in a mud puddle.
      Rarely had such associations.

      Wonderfully tasty and totally consistent, the alcohol is super involved and the youthfulness was perfectly tamed.
      Very sweet, lots of fruit, nice dry smoke, a few leathery aromas .... you really smack

      Could be longer, but is nice malty-fruity with a fine mechanical smoky note.
      medium
