    Ralfy review 780: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah0Q9B1_eOs (95/100).

    "The richness of the cask infused with the vitality of the spirit makes this the finest Ardmore I have tasted in my life."

    The price of this bottle was £150 May 2019 in the 97th SWA auction. 95 points from Ralfy and it went through the roof up to £500 few days ago during the 102nd SWA auction. :) The same sad and inevitable story again...

    Nose: Smoky, salty fruit notes with underlaid peat. Very fresh and fruity with juicy oranges and limes. Added some leather, vanilla, honey, caramel and butter. Class!
    Taste: The first impression is dull and salty. Pickled fruits with a lot of spicy sherry, smoky peat, nut aromas and some oak. Sweet honey and caramel again for the transition.
    Finish: nice and long. Salt, peat and smoke with underlaid fruit notes and nut aromas (walnut). Towards the end dulling, but only very little wood.
    91 points (nose: 92 / taste: 92 / finish: 90)
