  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Head to head with the 'Peat Fighting Man'. This 'See me, drink me' is a little less round and fruity sweet (though still pretty fruity) and also has more peppery spice to it. There's actually more of a 'fight' over here.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Peat smoke, limestone, mineral, vanilla, bitter orange, lemon, lime and some sweeter orchard fruits (apples), a sweet grain note, olives, pepper and sawdust.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Oily, earthy, peat and smoke, sea salt and quite peppery, sweet and bitter fruits, oranges, pomelo, apple, some faint peach, eventually quite some drying and dusty wood notes.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Pretty long: peat and earthiness, more pepper, vanilla and some sweet fruitiness, ending with a drying wood note.

  2. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Effective, balanced, complex, surprising. Would not that be what you expect from a whisky? This Ardmore is simply a great achievement. Superb.
    • Nose
      very smoked. The peat brings here notes of black and green olives, olive oil, capers, anchovies, in short, one swims in full tapenade, which is well salted and peppered. The second part of the mouth leans more toward a farmer's side, with notes of leather and horse. Finally, a sweeter side brings notes of licorice (cachou), but also fruit waterlogged: melon, peach. At the end of the mouth, it is the mineral side that comes out, embellished with a slightly sweet acidity (lemon, mandarin).
    • Taste
      Frank and dry attack. It is powerful and you fill every mm² of your mouth. Citrus fruits stand out, but with a more milky touch: chocolate lemon cream a little spicy. The notes of pepper, licorice, salt are frank and make it a little austere dram, without losing its distracting side. It is also iodized, and it pulls towards the seaweeds, a little in the style of amacha, this Japanese "tea" so particular.
    • Finish
      moderately long and a little more austere than the mouth. Fruits and citrus are in the background, giving way to the triptych iodine / sugar / mineral. It's really nice.

    Ardmore 21y 1992/2013 'See me, drink me', 49.7%, The Whiskyman, 175 bottles
    In comparison with other Ardmore's 1992, it has a less round profile. This is slightly sharper, cleaner and more mineral. And that is not bad news at all. On the contrary. I like this profile, built around minerals, zest (the zest of lemon and grapefruit here), earthy tones (wet earth, roots) and salt. Together with the slight peat notes, this even reminds me a little bit of clean Port Ellen (on a little active sherry barrel). Besides the citrus, I also smell green apples and white peaches. And even melon and kiwi. Linseed oil makes it ... er, oily. A nice farm side is around the corner. Wet hay. After Port Ellen I also have to refer to Brora (from the second half of the seventies). Really beautiful. Stinging mouthfeel. The zest, the minerals, the earth, the salt, it returns to its full glory. Ginger and pepper contribute to the stimulating character. On the other side of the taste palette we have honey, nougat and gingerbread. And fruit in the form of apples, pineapple and bananas. Almonds. Solid, oily peat. And the farm with its wet hay is still there. The aftertaste is long, sweet, spicy, salty and smoky, and above all as complex as the rest of this Ardmore. Yet another proof that Ardmore was top in 1992. And that some of it is seriously made available for bottlers. 90/100 http://onversneden.com/2013/04/03/ardmore-1992-the-whiskyman/

    Crystal clear profile. It is nice that there is a lot of tropical fruit, but that it never gets too sweet due to the abundant mineral notes and well-integrated peat notes. Beautiful dram!

  6. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The nose smells like creamy stewed apples with a little freshly sawn wood mixed with vanilla.

    Ah there is the peat and it reminds me a lot of caol ila, its peaty, farmy & creamy.
    Hints of green apple skins mixed with the peat.
    More like Islay than Highland this is.

      Long, salty, bittersweet.
