Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2005 SMWS 66.95

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.50 points

  1. Nergal scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: Reassuringly sweet with pink wafer biscuits and Turkish delight dusted with icing sugar and wrapped with a soft cloud of gentle smoke. More floral notes developed with violets, red roses and apple blossom that fused quite magnificently with malt extract and sticky cough mixture. The syrupy texture extended to the taste with a mouth-coating character now delivering liquorice sweets, overcooked blackcurrant jam and considerably spiced haggis that had been grilled until the edges had become crispy. The finish was substantial and irrepressible leaving a warm and sweet smoke reminiscent of pork crackling on the barbeque.
    Drinking tip: Drink when you do not wish to taste anything else for the next few hours.
