Beautiful fruits on the nose, mainly on dates, oranges, and grapefruit, along with some herbal honey and medicinal notes, all mixed together in a soft creamy sweetness. The palate delivers the creamy fruitiness that the nose promised, and demotes the herbal medicinal notes to a smaller supporting role. The smoke is still there, which balances the oily tropical fruits perfectly. Eventually the eucalyptus, black pepper and ash become louder on the finish, but always in perfect balance and elegance. Ardmore doing what Ardmore does best.
