  1. gustav tahl scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    A nicely priced cask strength dram with lots of peat and sherry
    • Nose
      Farm boys ice cream, peat and a slight sulfur smell
    • Taste
      Dried fruit, oily, ripe forest fruits, anise
    • Finish
      Long warm finish

  2. Bam scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Downplayed dram who has some very unusual notes to offer. But he can not completely hide his youth in the finish.
    • Nose
      Smoky, salty and sweet. Smoked BBQ sauce, salted peanuts, smoked paprika powder. Slowly becomes fruity, cranberries, currants, raspberries, and a strong hint of vanilla.
    • Taste
      Strong onset, oily mouthfeel. Strong berry sweets, redcurrant and strawberry jam, raspberries with vanilla sugar. Also the BBQ sauce is there. The oak shows over dark caramel, and zarbittere mint chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium length finish. Clearly metallic note, which also has something of raspberries. Still the mint chocolate, and some espresso.

    Want to shock a PX-fan or surprise a smoke head? Well this Ardmore won't disappoint. The PX is well under control by a overwhelming smoke. From dry wood-smoke to methyl tobacco and lots more. Smoke, smoke, smoke. Very interesting to explore! Full review (in German): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/08/29/viel-rauch-um/

    Nice combination between the salty, spicy from the highlands and the sweet from the PX. Alcohol is well integrated. Very tasty.
