  1. Gregers scored this whisky 72 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      69 69
      New leather shoes, varnish, rose petals, light smoke, vanilla. Unpleasant.
    • Taste
      74 74
      Sour mash and smoke, lots of it, but not much else. Some sweetness offers balance, though.
    • Finish
      72 72
      Rolls off slowly, only smoke lingers.

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 240 bottles from cask no. 800017

    The 2nd of our young Ardmore bottlings, this one is from a 1st fill American oak barrel – a rich golden colour, excellent for its age, with a moderate bead.Smoked haddock on the nose reminds us of the back streets of Abroath – smokies hanging in the gardens. Behind the smoke, there is a sweet golden syrup with vanilla toffee and a smoldering bonfire of wet leaves. Surprisingly sweet to taste at natural strength with old fashioned hessian notes in the aftertaste. A little water freshens the palate – now, new hessian coal sacks, recently delivered, with traces of dark toffee. A voluptuous mouthfeel – sweet, smoky and peppery. Overall, very complex and rounded for an 8 year old whisky.
