Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2008 Arc

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.13 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Usually I'm not that fond of young Ardmore as too much on peat, but this one is quite quaffable. Bottled by Archives for Café Stalles in Rotterdam.
    • Nose
      Citrus fruit of lemon and lime gently intermingled with kippery of anchovies, mussels and smoked salmon. Brine. Earthy notes of dry hay, heather and chalk. Dried crab-shells and Lapsang Souchong at the background.
    • Taste
      A big sweet side to counter the peaty smoke. Vanilla and heather honey. Followed with hints of stewed apples and peel zest. Some grassy notes. Aniseed as well. Resinous and mineral notes later on. It all reminds me of Ardbeg in a way.
    • Finish
      Long and clean. Bitter-sweetness with lots of toasted almonds and black pepper. Some iodine at the end. Not the most complex whisky, but quite enjoyable.

  3. Montijo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Lemon note, light peat, a little fat on the palate, with this nice hint of Laphroaig .. it's just a little short in the mouth. A great summer whisky.
