Ardmore 30 Year Old Reviews
Tasting notes from Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Sweet and fruity, with toffee and apple sauce, and a gentle gravelly smoke. The smoke slowly builds, becoming more fragrant – burning twigs, leaves and cocoa nibs. The toffee and apples return, now crunchy and combined. Sweet Love Heart candy touches sneak in at the back.
Palate: Cinder toffee and singed twigs lead to damp earth and crisp, dry autumn leaves. Sweetness and spice run underneath, with the Autumnal notes joined by blow-torched apples on top.
Finish: Waxy apples and bonfires.
Comment: The perfect dram for drinking outdoors on a crisp and cold night. Or indoors looking out of the window.
Tasting notes from the producer
Nose: An initial burst of cinnamon follows with a hint of pineapple and pears finishing with a soft creamy note.
Palate: Feel the warmth of liquorice raisins and a hint of mint. With water creamy toffee and slight peat smoke with wood char appear.
Finish: Savour the dry sweetness finishing with the wood spice, long lasting finish.
