      Dirtier. Peat, apple and a little malt. It turns frutier when adding water.

    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      The finish is more friendly. Long finish. Better balance between sweet and salty flavors.
