    This Ardmore 1988 from Michiel Wigman is a delight and a very refreshing change of pace.
    • Nose
      It's gentle and fresh with just a hint of soot and bandages, but mostly sweet fruits like nectarines, tinned pineapple and lemon. It has a lovely creamy quality with notes of banana custard and honey. Finally a touch of walnuts as well as some faint minerals.
    • Taste
      Great to see it's still very much an Ardmore on the palate, but more soothing than the ones I've tried so far, which have been 20-years-old at the most. Gentle earthy peat smoke with a hint of thyme and touches of pineapple juice as well as cinnamon sprinkled apple parts. Just a pinch of black pepper and menthol as well. Rather fantastic.
    • Finish
      Somewhat herbal and surely more menthol and mint, with just a touch of wood smoke. Impressive.
