The oldest Ardmore I have tasted. Smartly bottled at cask-strength and not chill filtered. (The entry level Ardmore “Traditional” is bookended at the opposite end of the age spectrum, tasting quite youthful.) My initial concern with this 30 year old was: would the wood dominate the lovely floral smoky notes I enjoy so much with Ardmore? The wood is certainly present, but the smoke still comes through. Complimenting the smoke, there’s gently layered sweetness (toffee, deep caramel, subtle honey), licorice root, bourbon barrel char, coffee grounds, high cocoa chocolate, with subtle dried citrus and a suggestion of floral soap. Dry finish, with more bourbon barrel char and licorice root. Considering that Ardmore has historically been a blending malt, most of the stocks right now are much younger. This is a rare treat. It’s just a wee bit thin in body and a little on the dry side from 30 years on wood for me to rate it in the mid 90s, but it’s still a very enjoyable whisky.

"Rich, golden amber color. Sweet, rich sweet golden raisin, prune, fig, vanilla, and caramel aromas. A smooth entry leads to a rich dryish full-bodied palate with coconut, caramel, and rich brown spices. Finishes with a long spicy dried fruit fade. Forward and rich, yet gentle and balanced with a lovely Sherry character."
