Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2009 82NC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Even for a skeptic when it comes to rum ripening, this is a very successful experiment in which the harmony between the character of the distillery, the sweetness of the rum and the barrel barrel fits. It's fun and tasty - what more could you want?
    • Nose
      87 87
      A whole Caribbean Festival floats towards you as soon as you pour it. Exotic fruits and rum stew with peaches and apricots, sugar water from a can with pickled mandarins, very subtle earthy smoke, fresh malt and some alcohol freshness, marzipan and white chocolate, also a little anise and clearly bitter oak. I'm not a big rum fan per se, but 82 Chapter to Newcastle gets the right balance like the Glencadam really well.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Taste: strong onset, now the smoke is a bit stronger (very warm) - but also a hint of musty wet earth and white pepper, malt sweetness, again the sugar water from the fruit preserves, marzipan coated with dark chocolate, is now woody. A fine mix of rum sweetness, Ardmore character and bitter oak. Great combination.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is medium long with a back and forth between malt sweetness and a spicy rum note and the slightly smoky oak with some dark chocolate. It's fun, but its intensity lags behind the nose and palate.
