This bottle is smoother than what we’re used to from the house of Ardmore. In the nose, honey, spices, a touch of cinnamon and some smoke with light notes of phenol.
At first it seems to be discreet, then it develops wonderfully balanced spicy-sweet notes with herbal tones and a light smokiness at the same time.
Combined with a Dalay Reserva Maduro Chisel, a honey sweetness with spices develops. If you like it more expressive – a Ramón Allones Small Club Corona releases a pastry-like sweetness and is reminiscent of banana cake.
