Nose: Some pears and sour lemon, then some ash. The peat is quite subdued, but there's quite a bit of heat coming from the nose. After a while, it gets a bit sweeter with banana notes.
Palate: Drying oak, tar and ash, then some pepper. A very simple palate, too bad some of the fruity notes from the nose don't come through
Finish: The ash continues for a while, some very feint hints of honey.
I'm not a fan of this one. The nose is already quite simplistic, and the palate even more so. Maybe the casks were charred too much?http://whiskyinformer.com/home/ardmore-19912006-gordon-macphail
