Ardmore 1992 (Whisky-Doris)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Ardmore
The latest release by Whisky-Doris is an Ardmore 1992, something we’ve seen from plenty of bottlers lately.
Ardmore 20 yo 1992 (49,5%, Whisky-Doris 2012, bourbon barrel #4768, 134 btl.)
Nose: medium peat balanced by slightly tropical fruits as we often see in Ardmore. Tangerine sweets and gooseberries. A little wet fur and minerals. Soft sooty notes in the background. Very good although I’d say it’s slightly more subtle than similar casks. Mouth: rather more peaty now, deep smoke and pepper. The fruity notes are now more of an undefined sweetness. Maybe oranges and apricots. Returns to earthy notes and liquorice. Finish: long, herbal and peaty, with zesty grapefruit.
