    • Nose
      89 89
      Oak is present.
      The smoky tones: leather, gunpowder, and wax.
      Spare ribs with sweet marinade.
      Roasted grapefruit.
      Mineralig: hit a wet stone with a hammer. Coriander and a musty old Chesterfield sofa.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Mouth full of sweet fruit, honey candy, pear drops, blackberry jam, sour candy mats, you name it.
      Bitter orange peel but tasty.
    • Finish

      Medium.Raisins, overripe plums and yet again those sweet marinated spare ribs.

  2. Love street scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Ardmore sherry cask, no brainier it’s got to be good ?
    Rookie error subtle Buchan peat is not so receptive to a sherry influence as other peated cousins
    Nose sweet sherrycask influences
    Arrival bitter sweet not disappointing, but not what you would expect with a peated sherry cask malt. Sherry over powers the lighter Buchanan peat influence
    Development again not a disaster but not a triumph, cask influence overpowers the Ardmore distillate
    Finish peppery peaty and more than a far share of sherry sweetness
    Overall very enjoyable but not the triumph you would think

  3. ctu scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Not too sherried, but a bit grotesque, powerful Ardmore. 87/88.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Smoke, earth, pear, orange peel and waxy apple.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Fat. Peat, sherry, apple, pepper, citruses and vanilla.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, oaky.

  4. dram-drinker scored this whisky 88 points Moderator

    Very punchy and rough as it is young but it swims well with water and is pretty drinkable - probably not as smoky as expected but rather round and more fruity
    • Nose
      86 86
      Lots of vanilla, cream caramel candy, peanut butter, hints of orange peel, just whiffs of smoke
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very punchy, oily and liquorice, plenty of citrus fruits, black tea, salty, smoked ham, hints of peat, subtle sweetness - very good
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, burning, rough, more black tea and oak wood, more sweetness
