Tasting Notes




Nose: Creamy, with appealing savoury notes of cured meat and even a touch of horseradish, with some subtle smoke lurking in the background.
Palate: Soft mouthfeel of gentle peat and a touch of menthol, with clove, apple and pear.
Finish: The gently warming peat slowly dissipates.

I bought my first ever bottle yesterday. Money is a bit tight this month so I thought I would take a chance. What a most pleasant surprise. Admittedly it's not an Ardbeg or a Laphroaig but this really is a very palatable dram.

Sweet with peat

Great value at the price. Other people's negative comments probably come from those who are not used to peaty whiskies. This is often the case with negative reviews of popular Islay malts. Customer who likened Talisker to a peaty whisky has not tried a truely peaty whisky. Ardmore has a gentle peatyness and I was surprised at its quality at this low price.
