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.
