  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Especially in the nose some more peat, in body and taste this is put back to the background. What remains is a very powerfull, sweet and fruity whisky.

  4. MY MALTS scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    My first Ardmore I open ... Smoke is in the background, but subtly ... Herb, and a little dry ... There is a slight bitterness in the finish on ... Sherry-Sugar is unfortunately not there ... If you give it 23 min. Of air is still some sugar on ... 16/8/16 Was very pleasant when you gave him time to develop ...
