Tasting Notes:
Producer's Tasting Notes

Nose: Straight from the bottle the initial aroma is of marzipan with just a trace of peat smoke that is overlaid by the morello cherry and blackcurrant fruitiness.

A touch of water releases all the multitude of complex flavours that one expects from this Highland Malt appears. The peat smoke appears immediately as a touch of leather that fades and allows the creamier fruit and heather flower rich softness that is balanced by the tang of oak.

Body: Richness balanced with fruity softness.

Palate: At bottle strength the peat smoke burst in the mouth and overpowers the softer flavours. With a touch of water the peat concentration is mellowed by vanilla cream and a sweet oakiness.

Finish: Crisp and quite long lasting.

After sampling this at The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show this year I knew I just had to buy a bottle. Beautifully fruity with a wonderful finish and that classic Ardmore undercurrent of peat. Superb neat, or with just a tiny bit of water the fruity flavours really come to the fore. I love this whisky!!
