Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at the Ardmore distillery. It is bottled by Old Malt Cask at 49.7% ABV with no coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Sweet honey, lemon zest. Fresh baked cake, light vanilla. Lime, brine and soapstone. The essence of a nice riesling overall, but with much more ethanol involved.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Honey, brine, pepper, light sulfur. Faint ash, burning wood. Chalky, mineral, soapstone. Fresh baked cake. Really hot despite the proof. Earthy. Sweet vanilla bean.

  • Finish:

    Short, not super complex here. Lemon lime, ash, soapstone, light peat. Not a smoke bomb by any means.

  • Overall:

    Nice, and fairly unique, but it grew more disjointed, and a bit hotter than Id like, near the end.

  • Score:

    6
