Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 1993 GM
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points
- An amazing nose, fruity, slightly smoky, almost port Ellen, but then a bit thin and a bit bitterly woody at the end. But still good whisky.
- [January, 2015] I emptied a bottle that I bought for 61 Euro in October, 2014.
In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85. My notes state a nice sweet and peaty profile that is slighty drying (cold ashes). Quite entertaining...
- At no time boring and quite mature. A clearly dry and smoke-stressed profile, overall quite simple but honest. Only the departure appears a bit too short.
Old Railway Threshold is the spontaneous association. Muffiger cellar and clutch abrasion. After short medical approaches it goes in the direction of old ashtrays and tea kettles. The smoke dominates in the beginning, but surprisingly clear, before some citrus notes, more mineral than citrus fruits, as well as an idea of caramel arise. Very dry profile. Warms slightly sweeter, more toffee and mint approaches.
In the mouth, it then starts dry mineral, before from behind an extremely dark, peaty malty sweetness along with distinctly tart notes and a dash of acid slowly fills the mouth. Warms slightly dense, in the end white pepper.
He goes dry and herbaceous, overall relatively quickly. The acid lingers on the palate a little longer than the smoke.

- A beautiful Whisky from the Speyside with typical notes in the nose and a very subtle but still expressive smoke in the background. In the mouth then an explosion of a beautiful fruity, honey-like sweetness, which alternates with the smoke. Long, very pleasant finish. 46% vol. would have given the whisky even more expressiveness, but that's complaining of a high level.
- Slightly peated, leather and even ashes are comming to your nose. The taste gives us a nice peated whisky with hints of mint. The finish is short and spicy
