Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 1991 GM
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points
- 21.5-21.5-21.5-21.5 strong. Looks younger
- Hard whisky, there is a potential in it, but without water it doesn't really a round whole.
A bit alcoholic. Exotic fruits, citrus, herbs and chewing gum.
Powerful. Spicy oak, citruses, sweet fruits, peat and punch. Touch of mint.
Long, spicy with citruses.
- Beware high strength. And I mean it.
Water will soften the palate, so, apparently, adding some water is advisable here.
Edgy. Alcohol rush tickles the nostrils at the top, although it smells refreshing, fairly crisp and fruity. Full of tropical fruit like citron, pineapple/candied pineapple rings, litchi?, (under-ripe) pear, green banana... Sapwood, hay.
It only gains from spending more time nosing it, while becoming mellower, fruitier, and sweetening progressively.
Robust, with structured body - not quite oily, but smooth - never mind its alcoholic potency. Mixed spice enhances spicy heat in the mouth, acrid, limoncello?, almonds, brittle candy, maybe a touch of lemon curd there with vanilla fudge. Allspice, nutmeg, cardamom and peppermint, sap.
Palate-wise it has a weird, almost a wavelike, puckering sensation, which is odd really...
Vegetable bitterness, herb tea, astringent, lemon rind, mint. Lengthy citric fizz.
