My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Bacon with fried mushrooms, stewed apples, vanilla, fudge, hints of tar and nutmeg.
Palate: Mild but prominent peat, apples, raisins, Werther’s Originals, nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, sweet and fruity and slightly smoke.
Overall: There must be quite a bit of Ardmore in this rather voluptuous blend, the smokiness is well complemented by fruity caramel notes.
Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
