Brands and Distilleries : Ardmore

Issue 135 Out Now

Whisky Magazine Issue 135

Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, Japanese craft whisky, Sedgwick, Kentucky Peerless



- Scotland - 46.00%
7 Ahhdrmore! A welcome addition.

Ardmore Triple Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A very drinkable peated Highlander. Good to see Ardmore's unique take on peated whiskies is gaining a much greater exposure.

Gordon & MacPhail Ardmore 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 I have always thought of Ardmore as having a rather bluff character, but on this occasion I found it both welcoming and comforting.

Gordon & MacPhail Ardmore 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Very elegant and fragrant. As an apéritif with melon, basil and Parma ham.

Gordon & MacPhail Ardmore 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A pleasant dram, especially with a splash of water but lacks nerve and buoyancy.

Gordon & MacPhail Ardmore 1990 Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
7 Starts slowly, and seems uncertain as to where it is going.

Gordon & MacPhail Ardmore 1990, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
7 A hidden complexity on the palate. A malt to give you a tender kick on “one of those days, you know…”

Old Malt Cask Ardmore 1977 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Has maturity and presence. Ardmore: a complete package.

Scott's Selection Ardmore
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.10%
7 Not a model of subtlety but a well-knitted character, in the light heavyweight category.

Signatory Ardmore 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Robust as ever, but much more peatiness than I associate with this distillery. Oaky, too, for a relatively young whisky.

Single Malts of Scotland Ardmore 1994 11 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.80%
7 Speyside you say, eh? A real region buster, and I loved that sootiness.

The Whisky Exchange Ardmore 1993
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.30%
7 An enticing whispering whisky.
