- Good product, greedy and very appreciable.
A frank nose, evoking the brandy of plum, pear and associated with woody notes.
The entry in the mouth is pleasant, greedy with a fat and sweet tip. It is reminiscent of a sour candy, lemon cream (limoncino?) With a little smoke.
Average length and classic flavors (wood, sugar, herbs).
- Although it was the
least complex of the Ardmore 1992 whiskies I have tried of late, it was the best.
The nose is rather
tuypical <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Ardmore,
I would say. A full basked of green apples, some mint, a spoonful of soot,
freshly cut grass and a canister of butane gas. After a few minutes, some
grapefruit rears its fruity head. Nice development.
The attack is very
pleasant, but more aggressive than I anticipated. Very punchy! Mouthcoating. It balances the smoke and fruit perfectly. It is a
battle of grapefruit versus butane gas, just like on the nose. Mild spices like
ginger and pepper are cheering on the sidelines. I like this. A lot.
The finish is medium
in length on citrus, sweet peat and pepper.
