Whisky Reviews for Ardmore 2008 SV
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.06 points
- Whiskys that are not chill-filtered are usually bottled at 46% vol. With a higher alcohol content, the oils and fats remain dissolved in the whisky. Below 46% ABV a very cloudy malt is produced. Signatory Vintage deliberately plays with this effect in the 'Very Cloudy' series. Due to the dilution to 40% vol., the Ardmore shows very different flavors during the tasting.
- - a damn "foggy" whisky => lives up to the name
- an interesting taste for 8 years, but a bit weak on the chest
- too expensive at around 40 € for the taste shown
extremely cloudy, very light white wine color
Short and strong at the start, but somehow neutral and pale, a lot of oak, very subtle sweetness, still a little alcoholic character, slightly smoky, looks very young
short spicy aftertaste
- This malt is still very young!
[Color] almost clear;
Citrus-fresh, aromatic smoky aromas, some vanilla;
mild, soft, creamy onset, wood notes, beautiful smoke, bourbon vanilla, one-dimensional;
short finish, echoes of oak;
- Nose nice, taste nice after the first shock. Not bad for 8 years, no aggressive triangular file, but for 36 € then it lacks a bit of convincing delicacy and for the young and smoky-and-brutal fans, he is well sedated with 40%. Remains a nice eye-catcher on the shelf, which stimulates conversations on Kühlfilterung and dilution.
Significant smoke, but not penetrating, not biting, not medicinal, grilled ash, with creamy, light sweetness, vanilla, white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, then green fruitiness, apple, green grapes, a little grassy and a hint of pear schnapps
in the beginning not so good, tongue means first, there would be a rather lousy, scratchy, metallic 5 € -Discounterblend, fortunately, that is after one and a half seconds, caramel, Nutella, the creaminess is back, but despite only 40% also some spiciness (taste, not sharpness - black pepper, allspice), the smoke brings in slight tartness / bitterness, but fits in quite well and does not bang your fist on the table
short to medium, first spicy-bitter, then there is still some milk chocolates hanging
- Somehow interesting, but not so much to do with whisky ...
I have never seen such a light whisky. Looks like a new make, but was already 8 years in the barrel.
A slight hint of smoke hovers over the glass. There may also smell some fruit, gooseberry perhaps. Wood notes complete the whole thing.
Very soft start. He has only 40%, but even that I do not feel. With a little delay then a bit stronger, some spiciness, but also a smack like glue.
But quite long and spicy.
- The first nose made me a little frightened with the young fruit note, but then the malt became more interesting. The smoke is still present through the youth. Definitely not a bad malt, even if you do not expect a complex long matured and set whisky.
a very light and cloudy whisky, let's see if he convinces in taste.
Some smoke, pear and apple in the first nose, Obstler, Wiliams Christ chocolates, youthful notes, jelly banana, creamy pudding, subtle vanilla mixes with rising smoke, lemongrass, cane sugar, green unripe banana
In the second nose more pleasing, tastier and a little sweeter
sweet oily start, again smoke, ashes, cold campfire, caramel, shortbread, citrus notes, subtle chocolate, despite 40% it is pleasantly mouth-filling, clearly a little young but not too spicy, malt, pear, vanilla pudding, Schnapspralinen
light and oily, the malt slides down the palate, leaving behind a fairly distinct smoke for an Ardmore, getting drier, cold ashes, vanilla, a hint of oak and chocolate, green banana, unripe walnuts, comparatively long finish due to the smoke
