  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    First tasted at the Manchester Whisky festival - the wine cask seemed to complement the spirit, warm toffee apple vibe going on, well balanced, decent dram that had inspired me to buy a bottle.
    Having tried it again sober I managed to buy a second bottle - liquid sunshine.

      Really oily on the palate, lots of caramel, fruits, some spice.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish goes on for ages - warmth and a smile.

  6. ZLako scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I like AD products. Nice transparent distillery with a vision. More should follow suit.

    N: Spirity, alcoholic, young and rough at first. Quite closed. 3 drops of water added to 2 cl. Now the magic happens. Sweet molasses, dark rum. Turkis Delight and coconut. Extremely fruity. Papaya, mango and red fruits. Very nice and complex with a bit of added water. (86)

    P: Quite oily. Spicy. With a small pepper rush and a hint of cooling mint. Lots of caramel and molasses. Dark rum again on the palate. Very fruity. Strawberries and coconut with mango. Tobacco leaves and bitter coffee. Some plums and peaches. This is one of the rare occasions when I prefer the palate to the nose. (88)

    F: Quite long, drying and woody. Quite bitter. Some milk chocolate and coconut. (83)

    Overall it's quite nice but a few years of extra maturation would do this magic.

    86 / 88 / 83 = 85.6667 --> 86 pts / 100

    Incredible richness on the nose, with spices that remind of an Arabic marketplace. Also touches of leather and shoe polish. As always with Ardnamurchan it comes across more mature than its years. Also a nice sweetness from candy.

    Time for a sip. The taste delivers on the promises from the smells. It is certainly the strong distillate of this impressive malt that is fighting the overpowering influences of the Madeira casks. But it is an interesting battle. The end product is fully integrated, with only a slight hot departure on the finish. Nice and warming.

    With water the whisky tastes more sweet, with a sour edge or vinegar. A slight rubbery dry mouthfeel now. All in all, an impressive drop once again from this marvellous distillery.

    Tasted at an Adelphi event.

    8/10 - I'll gladly welcome another dram.

    Nose
    Toffee drizzled ice cream with raisins on top. Smooth on the palate. Vanilla. Buttery. A lot drier with O2. Very balanced overall. A touch strawy.
