Ardmore 1991/2007 Gordon & MacPhail

Ardmore 1991/2007 Gordon & MacPhail

0

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.

    The gentle dram

    The Glenlivet-Tomintoul Distillery is located in the hearty in whisky region of Speyside in the Ballindalloch. It was founded in 1964, primarily for the purposes of the rapidly growing market of blended whisky. Over time, single malts entered in the offer. Today I have in the glass the Tomintoul 12 years old in limited, as the producer indicates, version of Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish, 40% ABV. Previously, we had here Tomintoul - the gentle dram with a peaty tang, that is a peated NAS from this...

    Peat and red wine.

    During last Whisky Live Warsaw 2017, a friend of mine presented me a solid sample of Longrow Red 13 years old Malbec Cask Matured - great thanks. Longrow is a peated whisky produced by the Springbank Distillery, next to the Springbark (medium peated) and much milder Hazelburn. We are talking about the Campbeltown Region, which is the smallest whisky region in Scotland. In addition to these, there are also Glen Scotia Distillery and Glengyle Distillery producing Kilkerran. My guest for today...

    Swedish Single Malt Whisky

    I recently got two samples with news from Swedish Mackmyra, for which I heartily thank you. Earlier in the blog I described their first version of 10 years old. Lets see what our girlfriends are hiding inside. [caption id=attachment_7532 align=alignnone width=1920] Mackmyra Skordetid & Mackmyra Moment Korsbar[/caption] Mackmyra Skordetid, 46.1% ABV   N: sweet with clear wine accents, but also plenty of honey, caramel and toffee, after a while it all evaporates and...

    Thirsty malt

    Cairdeas, or friendship, thats how Laphroaig calls his annual editions for Feis Ile. Probably not to be called otherwise, since the purchase of this bottle this year was a real torment. First, I was looking for Cask Strength, but this quickly ended, then Laphroaigs website decided to prove that youre not strong enough to face it. Finally after two days I was able to reach the stage of entering credit card details. And then, no confirmation, email, contact, nothing. After a few days the...

    NAS from Isle of Skye

    From the Isle of Skye we had here Talisker 57 North, earlier classic 10 years old, also I posted a report from the visit to the distillery. For today, I prepared Talisker Skye, another NAS (no age statement), fortunately bottled at 45.8% ABV. N: still in the bottle, somewhat peat with smoked fish - this is a good prediction; you have to fill a glass - first alcoholic breeze, which clears quickly as breeze should, then a bit sweet - biscuits maybe, cooked apples, furthermore peat accents,...

    Independent Macallan

    Macallan previously appeared on the blog in the official version of Fine Oak, after 18 years of maturing. Today I decided to reach for Macallan 21 years old from the independent bottler Douglas Laing, Old & Rare series, Platinum Selection. We have here a single cask - refill hogshead, 245 bottles (mines no 6), cask strength 52% ABV, natural colour. Distillation took place in March 1989, bottling in September 2010. The presentation is just perfect. [caption id=attachment_7160...

    Młody Sherry Monster

    Recently described on the blog Glengoyne, was quite nice 17 yo, not officially offered right now. A similar situation is with my today guest, that is not generally available outside the distillery. Thats where I bought this bottle in 2012. I really like this issues you can get only in distilleries. Glengoyne Teapot Dram is about to be a reminder of the daily rations for distillery workers, which they were once treated to make the work lighter... Today, it would not pass... We have here a...

    Karuizawa

    As it probably is my last post in 2016, lets say for Christmas and New Year, I decided to dedicate it to the tasting impressions of a single malt from closed, already legendary distillery from Japan. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, I give you Karuizawa Spirit of Asama, 55% ABV (you can meet also bottlings with less power). This is not a single cask, Karuizawa is known right know, which gain record prices at auctions. We have a combination of barrels from European sherry oak. The...

    Adult Glenfiddich.

    It stands itself on my shelf, such a small bottle with the inscription Glenfiddich 18 years old, 40% ABV. I dont even remember from where I got it. It seems that somewhere in Asia, it was added to a large bottle of Glenfiddich. It makes no sense that it would stand so alone longer and get dusted. Definitely it must feel neglected. I have to take care of it. In the summer I described a 12 years old version, there I put a lot of links to other posts about this distillery and its spirits. I...
