Color
Pale straw
Nose

Fruity light sweet citrus, earthy note, smoke, light mineral aspect to it = lightly salted I think

Taste

Fruity attack afterwards more salted and smokey. 

Finish

Citrus fruity and salted, the smoke comes trough and sticks in a mineral way. Earthy at the end

Comments

This is my style whisk, fruity with earthy peat and coastal/mineral touch to it!

Color
White wine
Nose

Smoke, citrus (lemons, grapefruits) and mineral notes (pencil shaving, wet stones, hessian). Afterwards earthy notes, olives, apples and a pinch of salt.

Taste

Attack is sooty and mineral. Then come the fruits with apples and citrus (grapefruits essentially) and quickly earthy notes and a pinch of salt again.

Finish

Medium, smoky, salty and bitter.

Comments

A very mineral Ardmore. Very good but a bit austere and unidimensional.

Monsieur Dram
Expert Senior Monsieur Dram Tasting note

Monsieur Dram gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

très fumé. La tourbe apporte ici des notes d’olives noires et vertes, d’huile d’olive, de câpres, d’anchois, bref, on nage en pleine tapenade, qui plus est bien salée et poivrée. La seconde partie de bouche penche plus vers un côté fermier, avec des notes de cuir et de cheval. Enfin, un pan plus sucré amène des notes de réglisse (cachou), mais aussi de fruits gorgés d’eau : melon, pêche. En fin de bouche, c’est le côté minéral qui ressort, agrémenté d’une acidité (citron, mandarine) un peu sucrée.

Taste

Attaque franche et sèche. C’est puissant et ça vous rempli chaque mm² de votre bouche. Les agrumes ressortent, mais avec une touche plus lactée : crème au citron chocolat un peu épicée. Les notes de poivre, de réglisse, de sel sont franches et rendent se dram un peu austère, sans qu’il perde son côté distrayant. C’est également iodé, et ça tire vers les algues, un peu dans le style de l’amacha, ce « thé » japonais si particulier.

Finish

moyennement longue et un peu plus austère que la bouche. Les fruits et les agrumes sont au seconde plan, laissant la place au triptyque iode/sucre/minéral. C’est vraiment très agréable.

Comments

Efficace, équilibré, complexe, surprenant. Ne serait-ce pas ce que l'on attend d'un whisky ? Cet Ardmore est tout simplement une grande réussite. Superbe.

From Whiskyfun:

Ardmore 21 yo 1992/2013 (49,7%, The Whiskyman, 175 bottles) Five stars This one's nicknamed ‘See me, drink me’, so probably a tribute to The Rubettes (of course it's The Who). Colour: pale white wine. Nose: sweet Jesus! (that was a tribute to Roger Daltrey). Seriously, the first aromas that climb up to your nostrils are both wonderful and highly unusual, it’s some kind of smoked olive oil, or even smoked or grilled sesame or argan oil. There’s much less fruits than in the ‘average’ Ardmores, even other 192s that I could try (little peaches and such) while the smoke is much bigger. Also very mineral, I get some coal, graphite, pencil lead, limestone… It’s only after a good fifteen minutes that more lemon comes through, together with soot, naphta and maybe smoked almonds. Extremely old school. With water: water isn’t needed. Mouth (neat): lo-ve-ly tropical fruits, grapefruits, passion fruits… It’s not a very wide profile, nor is it complex, but it’s all crystal-clean and perfectly zesty, with just this very particular extra-sweetness that’s not to be found at other peatmakers’. Lemon flavoured sucrose or something like that? It’s a little rounder on the palate. Finish: medium and lovely. I seem to get a little aniseed, which makes for a nice and funny signature. Comments: Listening to you, I get the music, gazing at you, I get the heat… (make of this what you will). SGP:546 - 90 points.

Ardmore 21y 1992/2013 ‘See me, drink me’, 49.7%, The Whiskyman, 175 bottles
In vergelijking met andere Ardmore’s 1992 heeft deze een minder rond profiel. Dit is iets scherper, cleaner en mineraliger. En dat is helemaal geen slecht nieuws. Integendeel. Ik hou wel van dit profiel, opgebouwd rond mineralen, zeste (de schil van citroen en pompelmoes hier), aardse tonen (natte aarde, wortels) en zilt. Samen met de lichte turftonen doet dit zelfs een klein beetje aan cleane Port Ellen (op een weinig actief sherryvat dus) denken. Naast de citrus ruik ik ook groene appels en witte perziken. En zelfs ook meloen en kiwi. Lijnzaadolie maakt het… eh, olieachtig. Een leuk boerderijkantje komt om de hoek kijken. Nat hooi. Na Port Ellen dien ik ook te verwijzen naar Brora (van de tweede helft van de jaren zeventig). Echt mooi. Prikkelend mondgevoel. De zeste, de mineralen, de aarde, het zilt, het keert weer in volle glorie. Gember en peper dragen bij tot het prikkelend karakter. Aan de andere kant van het smakenpalet hebben we honing, nougat en peperkoek. En fruit in de vorm van appels, ananas en bananen. Amandelen. Stevige, olieachtige turf. En ook de boerderij met z’n nat hooi is er nog. De afdronk is lang, zoet, kruidig, zilt en rokerig, en vooral even complex als de rest van deze Ardmore. Het zoveelste bewijs dat Ardmore top was in 1992. En dat er serieus wat van beschikbaar is gesteld voor bottelaars. 90/100

Upon opening the sample bottle, it was as if I opened my compost bin in full summer. I smelled categorically and clearly wet, rotten leaves and ditto fruit. Not really a good start. After fifteen minutes of breathing in the glass, there is no notice of all of this anymore. In the mouth, this is what I tasted (undiluted): creamy, peated, minerality and vegetative (if you know what I mean).  Still, there is something in the palate I don`t really like.  Dunno how to describe it, but it puts me off.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Bananas, almonds, minerals, peach, citrus, hay, malt, sackcloth, currants and subtle tobacco. Basically everything is subtle in this one, nothing overpowers.

Taste

A nice combination of malt, bananas, hay, minerals, sackcloth, vanilla and a salty touch. The peat which is so apparent in the nose really stays in the background now. Instead, soil and a slight saltiness come through.

Finish

Fruit, soil and sea air, with a comeback for the peat. Sweet vs. salty.

Comments

Not being familiar with Ardmore, this profile reminds me a lot of Longrow.
After one dram, it gets dryer and less enjoyable. Take this one one dram at a time.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

The nose is wonderfully clean with loads of flax (or jute), metal polish (AutoGlym?) and soot, upholstered with great soft St Fergus peat and earty notes. I even get a whiff of butane gas before the fruit kicks in. Some green apples and a hint of citrus and green banana. Even some almond shavings. Surprisingly fresh.

Taste

The first sip is immediately sooty and sweet. The flax is present, but becomes fruitier all the time. Apple, lime and something salty. Comes very close to the previous release, but this one is less sweet and more earthy, which I find an improvement. Grapefruit and something that reminds me of rhubarb suddenly appear.

Finish

The finish is fairly long with a nice little row between sweet, salt and bitter.

Comments

An extra year, an extra point. That is, of course, absolutely not an axiom. Bu this bottling clearly confirms the reputation that <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = \"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags\" />Ardmore 1992 already enjoys. Around 92 EUR. Go for it!
