Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2011 VM

    On the nose, this whisky is very pungent and spicy, with some rotten aromas of the sauternes cask (yes, i mean this in a good way!)

    On the palate, you first get the fruity influence of the sauternes cask. That influence quickly makes way for the spicy and drying influence of the European oak.

    The whisky fades in a spicy and oaky frenzy, with only a faint reminiscence of the sauternes flavours. The gentle peaty aromas are nicely interwoven with the persisting oak infuence .

    This whisky is more suitable for the wood influence lovers among us than for the sauternes cask impact seekers.

    In conclusion, this is a good whisky with a lot of character. It is more driven on oak and spices than on classic fruity sauternes cask influences.
