    • Nose
      84 84
      The nose begins with a light mineral note accompanied by delicate smoke. Red fruits slowly show up, a hint of nuttiness. After a few minutes in the glass, the fruits will spread out more and more.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A very spicy, powerful start. The sweetness of the PX kegs is right there. Strawberries, dark cherry. A pleasant, oily body. The smoky note vibrates discreetly on the palate without being overwhelming.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Here the smoke comes to the fore for the first time and covers the throat. A warming finish with a slight bitterness and sweet vanilla.

      All in all a successful Ardmore, which was still cautious on the nose, but knows how to convince in the body.

    • Nose
      87 87
      initially light cold smoke, very light peat note, vanilla, oak, nutty (walnut)
      The smoke is really very fine and doesn't cover it up
    • Taste
      88 88
      cold smoke, sweet, malty, nutty, banana, a hint of pineapple, slightly peppery
      The alcohol is well integrated and comes through more strongly in the nose than in the mouth
    • Finish
      86 86
      pleasantly warming, sweet at the back

  4. DerDennis! scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very balanced, sherry and alcohol are well integrated. If you give the whisky some time in the glass, complex aromas appear in the smell.
    Very pleasant and tasty on the palate. Very attractive finish that holds the main components of the aromas well.
