    Cheap Travel Retail Bottling - Well Done!

    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".

    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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.

  6. Kensay scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    rustic on the nose, pears, fruit, does not develop

    the taste is also simple drinking, fruity, slightly salty

    short aftertaste

  7. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Overall a bit watery advised, the 46% do the malt neither good nor bad. Conclusion: another NAS Ardmore, who does not convince
    • Nose
      decent peat smoke, but immediately noticeable no islanders. Herbaceous, dry smoke, typical of the Highlands (BenRiach or Benromach). Bright fruits, green apples and pears
    • Taste
      pleasantly dry smoke, citrus and grassy notes
    • Finish
      short
