Ardmore 1991/2007 Gordon & MacPhail


Merry Christmas […]

Previous Ardmore on the blog was official Traditional Cask NAS, 46% ABV, that I liked, by its way I also wrote a few words about this distillery. Before that I had here Ardmore 1992/2013 bottled for The Auld Alliance Singapore, just 218 bottles, at 51,3% ABV. Today I present you Ardmore from independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. It was distilled in 1991 and bottled 2007, we have 16 years of maturation. The power is relatively low - 43% ABV. [caption id=attachment_7620 align=alignnone width=1920] Ardmore 1991/2007 Gordon & MacPhail[/caption] C: strow; N: fresh, pleasantly fruity with apricot, peach and nectarine, also lemon peel, then it gets a bit metallic and mineral, at the end I still have grapefruit, vanilla and biscuits, with time the nose becomes sweeter, also with a touch of honey and coconut, a few drops of water made it a little waxy and maybe soapy, its an interesting impression; T: beginning is young and warming, a lot of ginger along with growing bitterness, definitely dry, you have to get used to it to go deeper, after a while I discover grapefruit, apricot and honey touch, a few drops of water reseal a little lemon; F: quite long with grapefruit, elements of honey, dry. Score: 78. Ardmore 1991/2007 Gordon & MacPhail is not the best representative of this distillery. The taste is constantly warming up, requires time, breath, patience.

    Highland Single Malt Whisky

    Ardmore distillery is located in the Highlands, in Kennethmont in Aberdeanshire. It was founded by Adam Teacher in 1898. Most of the production is used to compose a blend - Teachers. Darker, in the sense of peat, accents in Teachers come just from Ardmore. On the market basically there is only one edition of this single malt. Although recently Ardmore Legacy also appeared, but it hasnt fallen in my hands yet. With any luck you can meet other Ardmore expressions at the independent bottlers...

    Young and perfect whisky

    The first post on the blog I devoted to my first single malt whisky Laphroaig 10 years old. Then, as well as in a post about a visit to the Laphroaig Distillery, I wrote about the distillery and its surroundings. I would recommend those articles as an introduction to this post. [caption id=attachment_756 align=alignnone width=801] Laphroaig Quarter Cask w otulinie torfowej[/caption] Quarter Cask is the type of casks, which were widely used in the nineteenth century.
