    Dirty "rotten" earthy Ardmore; in the good sense of the word. Even more dirty than normal.

      Really really good! Dirty earthy notes served on plate of sherry. Pretty odd; again in a good sense.

      Dirty notes continue. This needs water; quite some drops. Sherry notes combined with spicy flavors. Pretty strong. Sherry notes dominate. Might have been better on a refill cask.

      Medium long to long. Again an odd finish with pretty unusual flavors in the finish.

    Eehhh, I’m not a fan of adding water to a whisky. But...., this is a huge exception!!!! Without water; 86-87 max. With water; 89 easy.
    This dram just comes alive with water, on nose, taste and finish. Don’t take my word for it, just try. If you do this Ardmore does tick all the boxes you want.
