Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 1993 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.58 points

  1. WillemvdK scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A very good Ardmore, if you ask me. Special? Nah, not so much. What IS interesting about this malt, though, is the amount of haze that develops once you add some water. This whisky turns into milk if you add just a tiny little drop! Okay, that is a bit of an overstatement, but it does turn very, very opaque. No quality assessment, just an interesting observation.
    • Nose
      Rather fruity for an Ardmore. Lemon, green apples, toasted almonds, vanilla essence and some lingering peat smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet lemon oil and applesauce in the arrival. Some apple cider vinegar. Ah, there's the Ardmore character coming through: some nice ashy, coal smoke. Wet newspaper, vanilla scented candles and some wood spices (clove and cinnamon I'd say). The malt dries towards the end with quite some tannins appearing.
    • Finish
      Smoky with a bit of toasted almonds. But very dry. A bit too dry to my liking.
