  2. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    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.

  3. Forrest scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: really nice, subtle mixture of peat-sea salt and fruits (yellow and white but not more precise). The alcoholic side has completely disappeared since the opening of the bottle (6 months) and leaves room for a very beautiful nose, very fine and complex. A small farmer's side is released slowly. With water: even better.

    Palate: ditto but with a peat that fades slightly to give way to fruit (apple and exotic). Pretty sweet, earthy-farmer, spicy. With water: strengthening the fruity and farmy side.

    Final: Rather long. Always peaty and earthy. Slight bitterness.

    Ardmore 20y 1992/2012 'Peat fighting man', 49.9%, The Whiskyman, 146 bottles
    Hola, this is a beautiful nose. Round and full. And complex. The first elements that stand out are peat and minerals. Silver polish, wet earth, wet lawn. Mowing wet grass. Daana nuts (walnuts and especially cashew nuts), followed by oil and the zest of orange, salt and even some iodine. On which coast is Ardmore now again? The peat supports the whole, is constantly discreetly present. After some time the orange is accompanied by banana and pineapple in the fruit department. Wet hay too, slightly 'farmy'. I like. This pattern is continued on the taste. The mouthfeel is soft and oily. In terms of associations I can easily finish myself and refer to the nose. But I will not do that, I write: minerals, soft peat, hay, cashew nuts, salt, orange and pineapple. But also vanilla, lime and spices (pepper and ginger). And here too the balance between all of this is perfect. Long aftertaste on earth, peat smoke and fruit, and at the end some more salt as an extra. Tasty, complex and beautifully balanced Ardmore. Again a nice selection Dominiek! 90/100 http://onversneden.com/2012/02/02/20y-ardmore-1992-the-whiskyman/

  6. I_SPEY scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    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!

  7. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: apples, tobacco, light peat smoke, leather, light spicy, fudge, dry and citrus
    T: pepper, vanilla, floral, cactus, lemon, coconut, oily and light smoky
    F: honey, butter, vanilla/vanilla sugar, drying and some peat ashes

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur



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