Ardmore shows its gentle side. When will people discover this distillery?
The Single Malts of Scotland
1993, 19 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Clean with a light muskiness, almond, a hint of cow barn (nice!) and subtle woodsmoke. With water it shows good weight along with hot oatmeal, brick dust and a whiff of fresh asparagus.
Palate: Thick and unctuous - think caramelised apple with good acidity building up.
Finish: Light and tight.
Comment: Ardmore shows its gentle side. When will people discover this distillery?
Nose: Fragrant. Floral and malty. Freesia. Honeysuckle. Barley sugar. Opens on citrus notes. Lemon posset. Refined and complex. Hint of marshmallow.
Palate: Crisp like raw silk. Not as smooth as the nose would have let expected. A fizzy spicy feel on the tongue. But the same delicacy. Light fudge at midpalate.
Finish: Smooth, gently spicy with a fresh note of icy mint.
Comment: An enticing whispering whisky.
