Advent 06: Ardmore 10y Batch 5 with Dan

The sixth tiny bottle from the medium box of big flavours. Pay me to write, you jags!

Here we have a hobo’s tear worth of Ardmore 10y, of which is the fifth batch. Is that good? We’ve had one Ardmore before, their Legacy, and the Teacher’s Highland Cream is made with something from Ardmore as well.

We’re a quarter the way through the Advent box from That Boutique-y Whisky Company and so far it’s been solidly hit or miss. Which honestly is a good thing really, it means everyone who bought it gets exposed to something off their palate. It also confirms that waiting until the end of December and paying a heavily discounted price was the smarter option. Here’s what we thought:

Dan – smokey, taffy
Simon – leather, old people, mint, smoke

Dan – smoke, burnt sweet coffee
Simon – sharp burnt coffee

Dan – short and hot
Simon – bitter, not good. too much heat

Dan – iodine & bitter
Simon – kinda disappears

Dan – 6/10
Simon – 4/10

Ardmore 10y Batch 5 Single Malt Whisky – 48% 30ml – ??? – Highlands

Try it? Nah. Buy it? No.
