- A real simpleton. Does not hurt anybody, but does not excite, either. In the same category as the - imho very superfluous - Talisker Ske, Laphroaig Select, and Glenlivet Founder's Reserve, to name a few the discerning world of maltsters does not need.
- Young, light whisky with a good dose of Highland smoke. He cannot deny his youth and unfortunately there are hardly any other aromas hidden behind the smoke.
With the addition of water it loses some of its youth and also of the smoke and gains some creaminess and vanilla. Nevertheless, it remains too simple and boring.
Nice to add some smoke to another malt, but unfortunately too young and simple on its own.
Easy. Distant smoke, some lime and lemon. Green apple. Hay.
Sour apple rings, a little vanilla, mild pepper and a hint of smoke. Vodka Lemon. A little thin.
- Slightly smoky fellow, pleasant nose, I like it a lot.
Then a bit thin in taste, which is probably due to the 40 percent.
In the finish, then again clearly more present.
Overall not bad.
- Ardmore Legacy (40%). Consumed Feb 2019. Aroma is smoked apricots, lemon biscuit/pastry, lemonbalm, pale wood and smoke, notes of nectarine. Lovely. Taste subtle peat, juicy rounded middle with more stone fruit, burnt grapefruit, fresh and citric with biscuity notes and light integrated smoke. Very good. Enjoyable.
very fruity of pear and raisins, awl, honey, floral, tangerine, light smoke
fruity, pear, honey, relatively hot, very light raisin sweetness
- - an uncomplicated, slightly smoky single malt
- not a lot of depth but easy to drink
- for about 20 € an acceptable quality, fair price for a solid single malt
- not a big taste grenade, but what do you expect for the low price ... so everything is ok
light fresh character, citrus, light cold smoke
soft, somewhat lax approach, mild, slightly smoky development on the palate, subtle bourbon sweetness, spice shoots up
short quick finish;
slight smoky-sweet short finish
- Nice Islay alternative for easy access, low-priced and decent constructed NAS whisky. I do like this style, and prefer it over many other NAS-es. Much better than Laphroaig Select, or some Bowmore.
Sweet. Dry. Custard pudding (very clear). White wine. Savoury fresh herbs. And don’t forget the smoke; not ashy, not bonfire, but definitely smoke.
With water it is softer, sweeter, less smoky, less savoury.
Sweet, smoky vanilla arrival. Develops towards a dry vanilla and bitter wood.
With water the taste improves and shows soft sweet arrival and develops into sweet juicy oranges, vanilla and summer flowers.
Medium. Clear vanilla sweet and citrussy bitter dry.
- A young, uncomplicated, average Highland Single Malt at an attractive price!
