North Star Spirits Ardmore Tasting Notes

Posted: January 10, 2017 in Ardmore, Scotch Whisky A-G

North Star Spirits Ardmore 2008 (8 year old) 58.7%

Refill Barrel/ Dist: 2008 Btl: 2016/ Tasted: Nov 2016

A fresh, gristy and sooty nose with plenty of dry, gritty peat and smoked meat. Lightly herbal with subtle vanilla, citrus and charcoal. With time it becomes very rounded and very meaty.

The palate is full and rich with lightly oiled apricot, barley and hints of white fruit. Like the nose it is quite meaty on the middle with peat smoke and tar. Long and intense with the white fruits returning and mingling with dry barley, heathery peat and soot and the barbequed meat.
