Tasting note for 2009 Lady of the Glen Ardmore 8 Year Old: For a long time it was difficult to find Ardmore of any description. Nowadays there's regular bottlings from indies, as well as official distillery releases. Typically moderately peated, Ardmore showcases a very traditional Highland style, being more wood smoke than maritime. You also can find references to high end mezcal. Like Caol Ila, for example, some of the most exciting expressions are relatively young. This eight year old from a Bourbon barrel conjures aromas of butter menthol lozenge and whiffs of chimney soot. Already showing precocious balance, the full, oily attack suggests smoked meats, along with sweeter notes of tea biscuits. Background wood smoke completes the picture. Approachable uncut, this is seriously good young malt. From a tiny outturn of 173 bottles (around 50 litres were taken to be finished in an octave for a separate release). 59.6% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. 94 points.

Notes from Gregor Hannah... "smoked bacon and cornflakes".

Notes for Kinahans 10 Year Old: Dubbed “the Pioneer of Irish Whiskey”, Kinahan’s acquired international recognition back in the 1800s, partly for their unconventional approach to maturation. Released in 2015, the ten year old is part of their award-winning 'Heritage Collection'.

Tasting note: Brilliant gold. Near prefect nose with a melange of ripe peach, light vanilla, bristling barley and pristine oak. In the mouth, sultry fruits and oily barley dovetail into vanilla wafer biscuit and lemon barley sugar. Salivating spices keep you coming back. Impeccable Irish. 46% Alc./Vol. 95 points.

Other reviews... A beautifully constructed whiskey where, very rare for a single malt these days, you can actually taste the malt itself... A treat of a whiskey.

...200 years ago, Kinahan’s was the favorite tipple of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. The small batch single malt has blackcurrant jellies, cinnamon sticks, dry oak spices, and baked raisins on the nose. An unctuous, succulent palate follows, with rich baked goods, roasted fruits, baked orange, cherry cola, black pepper, and chili flakes. Rounded, weighty, sweet, and rolling, this just laps up the water. Dark, oily finish with bitter chocolate. A single malt you can really get behind.
