    Finish:
    medium to long and smooth

    Overall:
    Back in it's day, this was one of the best Price Value Malts around, easily accessible and lightly smoky for everybody.Now it's been replaced with the "Ardmore Tradition".I have tasted and compared both and they are basically the same, so it's not worth it to pay extra for a Bottle of the "Traditional Cask".

    A particularly pleasant middle way of peat and bourbon casks. Not the heavy peat of Islay, but much more present than at a Highland Park for example. Beautiful dram.
    • Nose
      Slightly smoky and slightly peated. Just below it are the sweet scents of vanilla, tropical fruit and a tang of caramel.
    • Taste
      The peat goes well on the tongue and thus covers the rich vanilla tones with an earthy blanket.
    • Finish
      Creamy finish, somewhat on the short side. Slightly fruity evaporation on the tongue.

    Tasted from a sample stashed away in 2007, from the 1st release. When tasted back then this was a good whisky, now this is great.
