  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    hui that was an exciting "ride"
    a malt monster in front of the Lord
    many notes are very fleeting
    he is challenging and exciting
    Unusually unpeated for an Ardmore
    • Nose
      neat malt, green and grassy notes, pear, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, green spices, oak comes, light fruit, later slightly a cheesy note
      with water: more grass, barely oak, earthy / mineral, sweeter
    • Taste
      soft and silky on the palate
      dark caramel, dark malt, spicy, light oak is more, earthy, oily, bitter, the alcohol only slightly jerks
      with water: wholemeal pasta, cereals
    • Finish
      long
      slightly oak, but very bitter, slightly coffee, vanilla comes
      with water: good oak, the bitter comes out even more, nutty notes, slightly brown banana

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    actually no smoke to taste, but a very voluminous, even oily whisky. Although sometimes quite youthful and malty, but he has some pretty strong moments. Tastes unexpectedly good.
    • Nose
      pure in fact not a bit smoke, fresh, sour fruity, citrus, unripe apples, but also a very directly malty note, a bit beery and mashy. It smells like a distillery. This is probably a bit of a hit for the youth. Over time, the nose becomes really fruity, delicious and sweet. With water, the fruit comes out clearer, some wood is paving the way. He gets very sweet with time.
    • Taste
      gently gentle for 62.1%, then only after a few seconds comes the alcohol kick and a handful of pepper, with malt and a touch of oak and vanilla. With water a little bit tarter, clear oak notes, the malty fruitiness is still preserved.
    • Finish
      The finish is a bit hot at first, then malty, tart, sweet vanilla in the background and youthful fruity notes pave the way. Very long finish. With water, the finish is actually a bit tart and astringent, but the whisky lasts a long time, amazingly.
