Color
Gin clear
Nose

typical ardmore peat, fat and oily with smells of engine oil, putty, fresh concrete. citrus behind all that and a little oak. not very complex but uncompromisingly unsexy. always a little ashy and dusty feeling. I don´t get any rummy aromas.

Taste

oh, very good . reminds me of laphroaigs I´ve tasted from the same bottler. an ashy peat smoke with layers of citrus beneath. very leathery and rather austere. in fact it´s even getting a little bitter. and quite narrow in a positive sense.
water  brings in some sawdust and pencil shavings , so you might want to sip it neat. on the other hand water also makes it a little bowmoreish, which is not the worst news.

Finish

long, slightly gingery, slightly bitter

Comments

good stuff, maybe not quite my style but excellent quality.
88/100

Fumée modérée et fruits variés se cotoient au nez, avec du malt et de la douceur issu du fût de rhum qui a le bon goût de ne pas écraser le tout. En bouche, équilibré. Un vrai feu de cheminée ! Avec un peu d'eau, davantage de fraicheur au nez. Il y a également de l'origan (!) et du toffee. En bouche, à la fois vif et crémeux. Finale très longue.

Enthousiasme 3/5

reviewed by Ruben (whiskynotes.be) on 16/4/2013:

This Ardmore 1991 seems to be different from the other 1990-1992 expressions we’ve seen in recent years. This one was fully matured in a rum barrel. Let’s see what the benefit was.

 

Ardmore 1991 - Malts of ScotlandArdmore 22 yo 1991
(53,8%, Malts of Scotland 2013, rum barrel, MoS 13018, 234 btl.)

Nose: immediately fresh, lots of citrus alongside the soft smoke. Sweet and sour fruits, say gooseberries and tangerine. Slightly candied. Some cut grass, moss and gentle garden herbs. In line with similar Ardmores, not sure what the added value of the rum was (maybe pushing aside the more austere notes), but very good anyway. Mouth: sweet and sour again, plenty of oranges, lemon candy and zest, pineapple and banana. Indeed those could be signs of rum but regular Ardmores show this as well. Really juicy. Soft peat smoke on a second plan. Some honey. Quite rounded. Finish: long, now the mineral notes are back (but still quite gently). Smoke and herbs in the end.

I know most people are a little wary of uncommon aging, like (full) rum maturation. In this case the influence is quite subtle, but it complements the natural fruitiness of this kind of Ardmore really well. Around € 100.

Score: 89/100

Nez: Une belle tourbe assez minérale, beaucoup de citron, de l'ananas et des épices. Des notes d'herbes fraîches et de trèfles également.

Bouche: L'attaque est douce, très sucrée. Le caractère fruité s'exprime vraiment avec toujours le citron, mais également de la poire, de l'ananas et des fruits de la passion. La tourbe minérale arrive plus sur la fin et apporte un peu de fraicheur.

Finale: longue, elle part sur des notes fruitée pour finir sur une impression de trèfles et d'herbe coupée.

Commentaire: Voilà un whisky tout en finesse et en fraicheur. Il peut plaire aux amateurs de whiskies tourbés mais pas seulement.

Nez et bouche très fruités, sur les fruits rouges acidulés. La tourbe en arrière-plan. La fumée et des notes terriennes et fermières s'ajoutent en bouche. Finale fumée et pâtissière. Excellent.

Ardmore 22y 1991/2013, 53.8%, Malts of Scotland, rum barrel #MoS13018, 234 bottles
Zoete neus, erg zoete neus. Maar niet op een manier dat het stoort, integendeel. Ik veronderstel dat dat te maken heeft met de turf en de mineralen die voor balans en complexiteit zorgen. De mineraliteit is misschien niet even prominent als bij enkele 1992’ers (denk vooral See me, Drink me), maar het is toch weer absoluut een meerwaarde. Natte grasmat, natte stenen, net gepoetst zilverwerk. De turf is zoet, en ook licht zurig. Het gaat een beetje de ‘farmy’ kant op. I don’t mind. Ook fruit tekent present, en laat zich kennen als zoet. Allerlei oranje snoep. Van die halve appelsienschijfjes met suiker. Niet zo erg verschillend van de meeste 1992’ers die ik proefde. Het patroon verschilt op de smaak van de neus in de zin dat de turf meer op de voorgrond treedt en minder zoet is. Iets scherper en assiger. Ook het fruit roept wat harder om de aandacht. Veel appelsienen (vers geperst sap, zoetzuur), rijpe kruisbessen, zuurzoete appels. Zuurzoet is echt wel het woord hier. De mineralen blijven hun ding doen, kruiden zoals peper en zoete gember vullen aan. Zoetzure afdronk, behoorlijk lang. Rook, citrus en kruiden. Verschilt in wezen niet erg veel van de 1992’ers, de rum maakt ‘m enkel wat zoeter. Maar al bij al even geweldig als z’n broertjes. 89/100

Very interesting whisky : grassy, lemony, peated, fruity, farmer also. But it needs a lot of time to get the best (at least 30mn). Don't understand ratings like 68 or 78 for this really nice whisky.
