Nose: Malty, yellow fruits, coastal notes, some grass and smoke too. With time the fruits turn exotic. A really nice nose.
Mouth: A spicy attack (pepper). Then exotic fruits and smoke all perfectly balanced.
Finish: Long, sweet, midly smoky.

A great Ardmore.

Nez : vraiment très sympa, subtile mélange de tourbe iodée-maritime et de fruits (jaunes et blancs mais pas plus précis). Le côté alcooleux a totalement disparu depuis l'ouverture de la bouteille (6 mois) et laisse place un très beau nez, très fin et complexe. Un petit côté fermier se libère doucement. Avec eau : encore mieux.

Bouche : idem mais avec une tourbe qui s'estompe légèrement pour laisser place aux fruits (pomme et exotiques). Assez liquoreux, terreux-fermier, épicé. Avec eau : renforcement du côté fruité et fermier.

Finale : Plutôt longue. Toujours tourbé et terreux. Légère amertume.

Ardmore 20y 1992/2012 ‘Peat fighting man’, 49.9%, The Whiskyman, 146 bottles
Hola, dit is een mooie neus. Rond en vol. En complex. De eerste elementen die opvallen zijn turf en mineralen. Zilverpoets, natte aarde, natte gazon. Het maaien van nat gras. Daana noten (okkernoten en vooral cashewnoten), gevolgd door olie en de schil van sinaas, zilt en zelfs wat jodium. Aan welke kust ligt Ardmore nu ook al weer? De turf ondersteunt het geheel, is constant discreet aanwezig. Na enige tijd wordt in de fruitafdeling de sinaas vergezeld van banaan en ananas. Nat hooi ook, licht ‘farmy’. I like. Op de smaak wordt dit patroon verdergezet. Het mondgevoel is zacht en olieachtig. Qua associaties kan ik me er gemakkelijk van afmaken en verwijzen naar de neus. Maar dat ga ik niet doen, ik schrijf op: mineralen, zachte turf, hooi, cashewnoten, zilt, sinaas en ananas. Maar ook vanille, limoen en kruiden (peper en gember). En ook hier zit de balans tussen dit alles perfect. Lange afdronk op aarde, turfrook en fruit, en op het einde nog wat zilt als extraatje. Lekkere, complexe en fraai gebalanceerde Ardmore. Weerom een knappe selectie Dominiek! 90/100

From Ruben:


Ardmore 20 yo 1992 ‘Peat fighting man’
(49,9%, The Whiskyman 2012, 146 btl.)

Nose: starts earthy, mineral and slightly sooty but after a while this is nicely balanced by rounder, fruity notes. Seville oranges. The longer you wait, the more it becomes (tropically) fruity, with great papaya / banana notes. Some oils, maybe even a hint of diesel. All very lovely and perfectly integrated. Mouth: very smooth with sweet smoke, peat (subtle peat, think old Ardbeg) and yellow apple. Almonds. After that, there’s clearly a hint of pink grapefruit and again some tropical hints of passion fruit and pineapple. Some coastal notes as well. Very nice. Finish: long, rather sweet again. Almonds and soft smoke.

It seems some of these Ardmores show potential to bring back some old-style Ardbeg / Brora with balanced peat and a nice fruitiness. This one’s my favourite so far, but be sure to give it enough time to unfold its complexity.


I completely agree with Ruben`s tasting notes!

Nose

I am pleasantly surprised with the soft, dry peat on the nose, that plays nicely with the barley and the wood. Soft citrus as well. Vanilla. A little oily with oyster juice. This might as well have been a sweet Coal Ila. Very clean and crispy.

Taste

On the palate, it is again silky soft. The peat is more expressive here, just like the oak (slight bitter touch), with mocha and caramel in the middle of the tongue. Feisty with a salty twist.

Finish

The finish is soft and sweet, which is something of the leitmotif of this <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Ardmore.

Comments

The nose was great, but the palate no less so. For those still in doubt: Ardmore 1992 is top whisky.
