Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2009 82NC

    Classic Islay-Cask Ardmore (there have been a few in recent years) - tasty, simple and playful. Playing with water and dealing with it is worthwhile. However, the eye-opening effect and a unique selling point are missing - but the weakest of the three series is good.

      Clear smoke but not overwhelming, lots of vanilla and caraway, a little anise and also clearly alcohol, slightly earthy Ardmore character and malt sweetness, only a little bit of fruit - a mixture of mirabelle and lemon. Fresh, strong, spicy but also very sweet. very weird mix - but fun. Water hardly changes anything here.

      As expected, very strong, warm earthy smoke, malt sweetness, a little lemon, damn spicy with black pepper and some caraway. But still looks a bit young and alcoholic. Real fireworks - let's see if water can tickle more. Jo water helps - becomes sweeter, creamier and more caramel.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is short to medium. Now, in addition to the malt sweetness and the heavy pepper, salt caramel and some wood. Simple and really tasty. Quite dry even to the rear. Makes you want to drink more ^^ Water makes the one on the Gaumer sweeter but more peppery in the finish - really strange.
