  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Yep! Again a very nice and well matured Ardmore! Very entertaining stuff!
    • Nose
      A nice and round sherried nose! Fatty and meaty. Reminds me a bit of bacon. Also there is a sweet and sour layer in like late season tangerines. Cinnamon. The combination of this lighter peaty flavors and the Ardmore profile deliver a pleasing nose once again!
    • Taste
      At first the young age and high abv make this feel a bit tart upon arrival. It can handle some water like a champ! With water it gets more accessible and opens up. Milk chocolate with milk cream inside is what comes to my mind.
    • Finish
      The medium long finish gives me some cigarette tobaccos, cinnamon, milk chocolate and cocoa. A wee wet cardboard edge at the end but within the right limits.

      Superb Ardmore that is both enjoyable as well as entertaining.

    Beautiful sherry-stressed whisky in cask strength, still a little youthful but also slightly barreled, the oak comes through. A good all-rounder for just drank away at a good price with interesting impressions.

      First comes the smoke (medical, cold) with some ashes, then staple and cinnamon. Fruity is behind: Mirabelle (ripe), gooseberries, then again flowery, then sour blackberries, sour cherries and heavy sweet honey, yummy!

      First, I have something slightly oily in the consistency, then comes through the peppery oak, the alcohol is not fully integrated and comes to light, light smoke but not dominated, then honey sweetness and then smoke again, then direction departure Taback and Leather, sweet juicy peach
    • Finish
      86 86
      Here comes the oak again, espresso notes, light pleasant bitterness, the whole is clearly dry, light honey notes and gentle smoke. The finish with medium length, only the smoke sounds long after.
