3 Ardmore Reviews

My proclivities to specific distilleries are at odds with one of my whisky reviewing morals. There’s never going to be a distillery that I’ll turn down reviewing because there’s always going to be at least one whisky from them I’ll like. That said, I do get into times when I want a specific whisky. And […]

Ardmore 10 2008 Carn Mor Rare Drams

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me a dram. Finishing up an impromptu tasting at Devoz’s place with Unclimbability, xile_, Throzen, distillasian, and smoked_herring, there was a lot of choices. It takes a certain amount of being an adult to not overdrink, not take everything put down in front of you, and also know your limit as well […]

As I’ve said in my previous review, one […]

Ardmore 12 Port Wood Finish

Thanks to /u/shane_il for the sample. Been meaning to get to this one for awhile. Especially with all of the IB Ardmore’s I’ve been having and my love of their old method of peating being a nice dedication to how they used to be.

Ardmore SMWS 66.73 “Midnight feast at the pony club camp”

Thanks to /u/Catharticintent and /u/xile_ for samples of this dram. Yup, traded for it twice. I’m smart with a capital D. This is a continuation of my ongoing series that I’m calling “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife goes through my backlog of SMWS (Scotch Malt Whisky Society) samples that I haven’t reviewed yet, pours them blind, and […]
