Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2008 Arc
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.38 points
- Ardmore on sherry or Ardmore on bourbon; that's the question. I am checking out Ardmore distillery in more detail. To me, Ardmore on sherry wins - for now.
Ardmore has this typical powerful, earthy, dirty and meaty nose. Those "ingredients" are at the scene here again. Water improves the score by a point.
Definitely not a beginners-dram. Just imagine having this in your glass as your first CS dram. This dram screams for water. Not a surprise given the abv. Unbelievably powerful and breath taking. Water brings more balance. Strong spices (pepper) dominate.
The finish is more friendly. Long finish. Better balance between sweet and salty flavors.
