Nose
Floral, tangy. Honeysuckle. Green oak. Lemon balm. A briny hint. Develops into creamier aromas. Vanilla waffles.
Palate
Unexpectedly smooth and sweet. Grassy, malty with a touch of bitter almond. Pear drops. Dries out on a dusty hint.
Finish
Sweet, long, almondy. Touch of mint.
Comment
A hidden complexity on the palate. A malt to give you a tender kick on “one of those days, you know…”

Nose
An oily peatiness then comes mustard powder and freshly bleached lino floor and a hint of rubber (not necessarily a bad thing).
Palate
Initially more on the lifted, lemony, estery side undercut with smoke. Very sweet with good balance. With water the smoke returns.
Finish
Oily, phenolic.
Comment
Jim Beam, will you PLEASE do what Allied failed to and release Ardmore as a single malt? It's criminal this distillery isn't better known.
