Whisky Reviews for Ardmore Triple Wood - Peated

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.08 points

  1. diamond2000 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: sour pickled apples, ash, burnt wood, condensed milk, sea salt, spicy cucumber pickle with herbs; after some time, the woodiness is revealed by new colors - sawdust, plywood, cardboard, lacquered wood. Pretty fresh scent, with a predominance of wood.

    Taste: sweet-spicy, milk caramel, cinnamon, coriander, light black pepper, smoked meats, ash, wood tannins.

    Finish: fading sweetness, spices, again a lot of wood, creamy caramel, slightly salty-mineral, rather oily, of medium length.

    Rating: 82

    Bottom line: whisky is simple as a penny - sweet-spicy, slightly smoked, with an abundance of wood at all stages. But somehow, there is nothing to scold him for, 46% give a dense harmonious taste and a good finish. Sherry alcohols here are probably added minimally, but the influence of Quater Cask can be heard at all stages. Any basic whisky from Ayla would probably be more interesting, but if we take into account that this is us from DF, with a fairly modest price tag, then it has the right to life. Purely for acquaintance with the fumigated Highland.

  2. Malthead19 scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    - a rather average, slightly smoky NAS whisky,
    - unfortunately a bit one-dimensional (little fruit or
    Secondary flavors)
    - would have expected more from Triple Wood
    - at 50 - 60 € the PLV is much too expensive
    • Nose
      light smoke, oak, leather, dark fruits, wine barrel recognizable
    • Taste
      strong start, smoke (campfire, fireplace) and a lot of oak
    • Finish
      short, somewhat powerful finish,
      medium-long, slightly smoky finish with oak

  3. Highlander65 scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Good, strong and masculine, with some colorful notes of herbs, fruit and cereals that make it more interesting.
    • Nose
      Initially fruit (peaches), then peat (smokeless), fresh mint leaves, vanilla and caramel, banana. With water it tends to fade a bit: citrus notes (orange) and baked sweet, light vanilla.
    • Taste
      Dry, peat (smokeless), a pinch of lemon, a clear note of licorice, cream. With water it becomes softer, creamier and less dry, the peat softens a little and the other flavors tend to disappear, a light spicy note emerges.
    • Finish
      Long, peaty, it ends with a hint of cream. With water the finish is shortened but maintains the same gustatory characteristics.
