Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Creamy, with appealing savoury notes of cured meat and even a touch of horseradish, with some subtle smoke lurking in the background.

    Palate: Soft mouthfeel of gentle peat and a touch of menthol, with clove, apple and pear.

    Finish: The gently warming peat slowly dissipates.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Light honey

    Nose: Heather Honey with hints of cinnamon and toffee bonbon. Very subtle hints of peat smoke

    Palate: Creamy vanilla spice gives way to more overt smoky charcoal notes, especially with the addition of water. Smoke doesn't dominate and  is balanced by the sweet honey and spice flavours

    Finish:  Full bodied, silky mouth feel with a (trademark Ardmore) dry, tangy and lingering aftertaste, coupled with delicious spice notes

    Young, fiery, a little bit of peat, a little bit of smoke, definitely not aged which is a shame because in about 10 years this'll be quite a nice whisky - right now it's a very expensive paint stripper. Add ice (!) if you value the lining of your mouth. Not one for the connoisseur.

    Unfortunately this scotch is very lackluster. Has a nice peatiness on the nose, but it's not smooth at all, and mostly just leaves a medicinal flavor and numbness. There's no age listed on the bottle, so clearly this isn't a properly aged whisky as other reviewers have noted, and that's very disappointing for a single malt. I guess this is good for shots!

    Massively overpowered with peat and smoke. The smell of mentol finishes off the overpowering attack on the taste buds without any real death of flavour. Not impressed and won't buy again

    Saw many negative reviews, but each to his own.This whisky has a lovely light smokey peat initial taste, and then a very satisfying toffee finish. Very warming on a cold winter's day!

    Feel I need to balance the books on reviews on this one as there's really not a lot wrong with a nice, standard malt. It's young, not complex, a great starter for those dipping their toes into gentle peat. Whispy smoke on the nose with a gentle, underlying candied sweetness. Spicy vanilla palate (as the producer notes say) and a pleasantly long finish. Won't break the bank and not barnstormingly exciting, but solid stuff.

    This whiskey was a one time purchase. Not horrible and not great It appears young, probably corporate decision to put less expensive single malts on the shelf for quick profits in a craze for single malts. I've certainly tasted better ardmore's!

    Not the best to be honest, it is very smooth and isn't too smoky but it just lacks flavour

    I enjoyed it. Peaty and smoky but not over the top. Lovely light colour. I think it fits nicely amongst my highland single malts, well, if I wasn't always drinking them. I liked it. Send a barrel my way x

    Pretty poor. Blandness of a young whisky which presumably it is. Much better whiskys at this price point.

    Thought I’d give this one a try, liked the mild peaty nose and taste to suit, clung to the glass which was a good thing. Not as overpowering as some of the island malts, not a favorite, though grand for the price......

    This scotch is a NIGHTMARE! Ardmore Traditional was one of my favorite whiskies at any level... Legacy is undrinkable. No character, no depth, absolutely not a single redeeming quality to this bottle!

    A wonderful surprise awaits you from the first cinnamon nose to a silky finish
