    I actually like Andromeda but this one was a bit disappointing. Delicious but nothing special.
    • Nose
      sweet smoke, vanilla, salty, caramel, hay and gras
    • Taste
      very malty, sweet, smoke, a bit fruity
    • Finish
      Coffee, malty, smoke

    That`s an Ardmore, eh?

  3. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A pleasant fine smoked Highland dram. Strong, intense and already complex. Displays an assertive medicinal character. Young and boisterous, flanked by lovely sweet and fruity elements. A perfect outdoor companion for a barbecue.

    I thank Michel Reick from Scotch Universe for the sample and the photograph!

    • Nose
      There's immediately peat and smoke on the nose with seaweed, creosote, coal tar soap and medicinal flavours. Subtle malty sweetness arrives nicely mixed with yellow fruits - lemon and quince. Tender spiced oak, hay and hints of juniper in the back.
    • Taste
      Bold and intense on the palate. Extremely warming with peat, subtle smoke and cracked black pepper, even chilli! Once the spicy warmth fades, lingering sweet notes of barley sugar, quince and creamy vanilla arrive, before dry oak and notes of juniper take over.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, warm, and creamy sweet with vanilla and malted barley. Dry and ashy on the tail.

      WITH WATER: Water tames the peaty and medicinal flavours, bringing more lemon, malted barley and oaky tones to the fore. Significantly drier on the nose. Lively, still vibrant on the palate with a tamed spiciness. Yellow fruits, barley sugar, coal tar and juniper towards the finish. The finish shows medium length with a creamy sweetness of malted barley and vanilla, followed by prickling oak and dry notes on the tail.

    Ardmore ?!

  5. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Creamy sweet with vanilla and caramel sweets. Behind a light fruitiness (bright fruits). Iodine. The smoke is strong, but beautifully integrated.
    • Taste
      A nice barrel. Lots of vanilla. Toffee. Then the smoke hits with full force. Campfire. Smoked ham. Ginger. Towards the end, the oak makes itself felt.
    • Finish
      Medium. First, vanilla again, accompanied by dried herbs. Torfasche. Then it gets drier with a little oak.
