    I like the malts from Rieggers, their finishes are fine-tuned, they know what they're doing. Already had an ardmore with a nice Amarone finish, this one has a ruby port finish
    • Nose
      86 86
      First the ardmore typical smoke reaches my nose, a sweet (honey) before the first fruity aromas emerge.
      First and foremost, these are berries such as blueberries, blackberries, but also raspberries .. In this colorful berry basket you have placed a few slices of apple, I mean to catch vanilla, sometimes I mean to perceive a cherry. Alcohol really well integrated, you can take it, but for a cask strength of almost 55% it is very good.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Amazingly soft in the mouth, but hardly burning, very fruity, even a little oily, very pleasant smoke, the nose is essentially repeated, I think I can perceive the apple more strongly, now and then it switches in an apricot direction, the mouth is something sweeter than nose. Mouth filling. Tastes older than it is, but the smoke almost completely covers the barrel, which is only restrained, but does not show any bitterness. A little malty, the barrel notes are light and dry, like the vanilla very much in the background
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium to long, not just because of the smoke, the fruity notes also hold up well, especially the berries, I can perceive my honey sweetness
