Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2009 SV

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

  1. Whisk(e)yCharlie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    In general Ardmore is a friendlier peaty dram than its Islay, or even Islands, peated kin. But, like the product of a good union, this Ardmore, aged in barrels previously housing Islay malt, borrows from the best of both.

    It is shockingly smooth for its 56.9% and imminently drinkable. It is smoky, no doubt, but it seems the peat is more present: more earthiness and brine than overt, outright smoke. The malt is even able to shine through.

    But, while not as present on the nose or palate, the lingering notes of the finish are rather distinctly Islay, with some slightly bitter, certainly coastal, and phenolic smoke notes hanging around well after the dram is downed.
    • Nose
      Wet moss. Vegetal peat. Damp forest. Bubblegum. Ocean spray. Menthol. Damp malt.
    • Taste
      More peat than smoke. Smoke has mesquite character. Nuttiness. Almost rubbery. Slightly bitter. Surprisingly smooth.
    • Finish
      Pepper. Dying embers. Peanuts. Nougat. Malt. Grilled shrimp. Ash. Chest warmth, but no burn.
