Words Of Whisky:
This Ardmore 1988 from Michiel Wigman is a delight and a very refreshing change of pace.
It's gentle and fresh with just a hint of soot and bandages, but mostly sweet fruits like nectarines, tinned pineapple and lemon. It has a lovely creamy quality with notes of banana custard and honey. Finally a touch of walnuts as well as some faint minerals.
Great to see it's still very much an Ardmore on the palate, but more soothing than the ones I've tried so far, which have been 20-years-old at the most. Gentle earthy peat smoke with a hint of thyme and touches of pineapple juice as well as cinnamon sprinkled apple parts. Just a pinch of black pepper and menthol as well. Rather fantastic.
Somewhat herbal and surely more menthol and mint, with just a touch of wood smoke. Impressive.
