Whisky Reviews for Ardmore Triple Wood
16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.08 points
- Cheap Travel Retail Bottling - Well Done!
fine vanilla, caramel, malt, subtle smoke;
soft oily-creamy onset, cereals, muesli bars, honey, caramel, apples, gentle smoke, nicely balanced, uncomplicated;
short, nutty finish; light smoke and oak fade away;
- Similarly to other Ardmore NAS offerings, it provides a good quality, young Single Malt without the biggest depth.
Doesn't have nearly as much Sherry cask influence as the "Laphroaig Triple Wood".
black pepper, peat smoke, heather, herbal, nutty, caramel, chocolate, bacon, sauerkraut, vanilla, apple
black pepper, peat smoke, vanilla, caramel, chocolate, rosemary, oranges, honey
medium to long and soft finish.
- Character: Pepper, kräutriger peat smoke and oak determine the taste here. The solid overall picture is a little clouded by the light body and the associated watery mouthfeel. As I said: you should like pepper and peat smoke.
Rating: In direct comparison, I like Triple Wood much better than Legacy and a bit better than tradition. For me the category "easy-to-drink, but not really my taste". There are numerous drops in the price range, which I would rather grab. Given the strangely thin mouthfeel, I have 81 points today.
Basic flavors: citrus, peat, smoke, malt, tea, fruits (light), vanilla (little)
Description: The nose is quite gentle. Lemongrass and limes dominate the most. In addition, there is some smoke, a bit sweet malt, cold green tea and green apples. With a little imagination, a touch of vanilla also resonates. The alcohol neatly integrated. A solid overall picture. I like the nose a bit better than legacy and tradition.
Basic flavors: smoke, spices, toffee, caramel, fruits (light, little)
Description: Clear, light fruit and from the beginning with plenty of pepper, the drop hits the tongue. Unfortunately, I can not grab individual fruits. In addition, the taste unfolds in the fruity direction too little. There is neat pepper and herring peat smoke. A bit of oak is also added and for a short moment a little toffee and caramel flash through. Despite the decent 46% but remains consistently a slightly watery mouthfeel. Too bad, with a little more body that could have been quite delicious. So it remains at a mediocre taste experience.
Basic flavors: smoke, spices, oak, nut
Description: The finish is medium long and dry. Pfeffriger peat smoke and some oak sound quite pleasant. Over time it gets drier and at the end there is a slightly bitter, but delicious portion of almonds.
- good drink whisky, although the flavor is also very decent
- A little bit of everything and still not that full bodied.
- rustic on the nose, pears, fruit, does not develop
the taste is also simple drinking, fruity, slightly salty
- Overall a bit watery advised, the 46% do the malt neither good nor bad. Conclusion: another NAS Ardmore, who does not convince
decent peat smoke, but immediately noticeable no islanders. Herbaceous, dry smoke, typical of the Highlands (BenRiach or Benromach). Bright fruits, green apples and pears
pleasantly dry smoke, citrus and grassy notes
