Review #88 - Ardmore 10 2009—2020 Single Cask Nation 58.8% First Fill Bourbon

Nose: Malt, pine tar, vanilla, spiced apples, dry wood smoke, lemon pith. Weirdly reminds me of lemon filled jelly donuts.

Palate: Lemon meringue pie, bright clean wood smoke, parker house rolls, vanilla, coconut, custard.

Finish: Vanilla, black pepper, smoke, lemon, slate.

Final thoughts: Very nice. Balanced, delicious, bright and sprightly. Not much of an after dinner dram, honestly. It's bright and exciting.

Would I buy this: I would, as long as it wasn't too dear.

Would I order this in a bar: It would be a fantastic aperitif!

Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: Definitely.

Verdict: Thumbs up!
