  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    without water

    Conclusion: nice Ardmore, the smokier variety, but no highlight either
    • Nose
      clear Highland peat without iodine + salt, sugary sweetness, apple, some tar, railway sleeper, slightly Minella-like, lemon ice cream, very subtle wood note
    • Taste
      dry peat, only subtle sweetness, light fruits, heather bushes, again only a very slight influence of wood
    • Finish
      medium length, peat, shrubs, light fruit, lemon, dry on the inside and some liquorice

  4. tommy12 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    very bright, very light smoke. Fruit. Taste: cold smoke (somewhat reminiscent of Bowmore or Caol Ila), rubber, S-Bahn brake, fruit, long finish, unpleasant.

  5. WHISKYEUROPA2009 scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    So far, by far the best smoky malt in 2021 in its class of 12 year olds - SMELL of fresh ocean air, sea salt, seaweed, mineral, moist moss on rocks. Then smoked bacon, BBQ bacon and a touch of phenolic medical .. TASTE Bacon, dry smoke, phenol, burnt caramel salt. Mouthfeel warm and strong. The finish is very harmonious with caramel and maritime salt aromas, dark chocolate and tart coffee.
