ardmore 12 yo jm | 56.2% james macarthurs


A 50ml miniature of Ardmore 12 yo JM , Fine Malt Selection range by James Macarthur’s (JM) of Edinburgh. Single Malt Whisky from Highlands in Scotland. Bottled at 56.2% abv.



Very smoky, good beer, the older Pilsner Urquell spring to mind, then lemon juice, wet stones, soot and matches, raw wool and ink.


Well balanced, with something that remind the recent young Ardbegs , then grapefruits and grass juice, peat, wasabi or horseradish, quite extreme. With a few drops of water, more peaty, more wildness, lemon zest and dry olive oil, finally, strong unsugared green tea.


Very long length finish, peaty and peppery, very dry.


For lovers of very dry whiskies only, almost brutal and certainly spectacular in its own genre.
