Nose

Un nez très prometteur, orge, fruits exotiques, de la fumée, du bonbon, le tout très frais, un régal pour les narines!

Taste

En bouche c'est fruité, fumé, on retrouve les marqueurs du nez, la touche exotique est indéniable!

Finish

La finale est courte, c'est un peu dommage.

Un très bon Ardmore!

Nose : Malty, fruity and smoky. The fruits are quite on the tart side. There is a vegetal touch and some vanilla too.

Mouth : Smoky and fruity (exotic, citrus) with a creamy texture. Spices from the wood.

Finish : Long, continuity of the mouth with a zesty touch.


A very good Ardmore. Not far from the famous 1992.

Tasting from september 2016.

Nose

De la crème, de la fumée, un zeste de citron vert, de vieilles boiseries patinées par les ans et chauffées par le soleil, un soupçon de miel, quelque chose de plus végétal (bois de bambou...); des notes fruitées et acidulées dans le nez le plus volatil vous titillent les narines. Right up my alley, comme on dit outre-manche.

Taste

Les fruits exotiques attaquent tout de suite après la première impression maltée et fumée. Et ils sont bien présents, et vous titillent les papilles en jouant avec le bois toasté et une discrète fumée. La crème sure est là, elle aussi.

Finish

Superbement fruitée, dans une trame fumée, miellée et maltée du plus bel équilibre et dans laquelle le boisé est superbement intégré. La classe! Une arrière-bouche à la fois fermière (cour de ferme en automne: la fumée s'échappe par la cheminée, il y a un tas de foin humide dans un coin, et on vient de traire les vaches) et fruitée (bienvenue dans les îles!).

Comments

Élégant, complexe, racé. Un must.

Nose

Maltiness, sweet chewing gum with 'artificial' fruit flavour - that makes clear that the cask was made of American Oak …, some smoke, caramellised eucalyptus drops, American oak vanilla, slight spices of scouring powder mixed with bright fruits (… maybe some mango, too), some fruit sweetness, dried flowers from the garden.

Taste

Bright fruits, lemony smoke, some peaches, citrus, citrus peal, wood, malty, a little tart, again that special American oak chewing gum sweetness.

Finish

Citrus freshness, citrus peal, pleasant spiciness, a bit smoky, some fruits (mango?), some maltiness, eucalyptus drops - that stays long … - for me much too long ...

Comments

Well: a quite good middle class quality, simple and pleasant, if you like that American oak thing.

Mr. Whiskyfun says:

Ardmore 1993/2015 (49.9%, Gordon & MacPhail, Exclusive for Whisky-Online, cask #5750, 176 bottles) Five starsColour: gold. Nose: oh, some smoky eucalyptus again! A touch of coconut in the background, some barley water, broom, vanilla, an earthy smoke, then vin jaune from Jura, fino sherry (but this is no sherry cask), and wet gravel after the first rain after a long sunny period. Mouth: it was a great American oak, which imparted lovely tropical notes, especially mangos and passion fruits that give it a Bowmore-y side. Then an eucalyptussy (apologies) smoke and these touches of white peaches that I often find in Ardmore. I find this extremely good, both ‘authentic’ and easy. In other words, malt whisky for your friends – and for you. There aren’t that many of them. Finish: quite long, zesty, smoky, well-chiselled. The aftertaste remains fresh and fruity. Comments: this one’s hard to resist. Everything’s just very perfect, which grants a 90-points score in my little tasting book. SGP:655 - 90 points.
