Reviews and Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Deep gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is complex, smoky and, earthy. But it's also restrained, with fruity and floral notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's a campfire smoke extravaganza, but it's also much deeper than that. There's vanilla, caramel, and a pleasant fruitiness in the background. Some spicy oak is also in there.

Finish
Finishes long with the smoky and fruity notes lingering.

Top reviews for Alexander Murray Ardmore 9 Year Old 2008:

— Tobacco and leather flavors. Some body and sweetness. Very good.

— This was a good one, it was Smokey up front but right under it was the sweet speyside flavors

— Perhaps it is my bias for smoky whiskys, but out of the 9 year old, 12 year, and 15 year, the 9 year was my favorite. It had little bite, and had a delicious smoky aftertaste.

Brandon
Brandon,
It might have been the smokiness, which I typically don’t mind, but I got hints of rubber in this one.
 
Amy
Amy,
I really liked the caramel flavor on this one. It can stand on its own, however I think it would be really good in mixed drinks. I think it would be good for someone who is new to Scotch.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, elegant, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a complex life leads to a long & smoky death with notes of fire, tobacco & leather.

Bradley,
I normally don’t care much for peaty scotch, but this one was not overdone and was surprisingly smooth. Alexander Murray makes some real good Scotch and I prefer some of the others, but still this one is better than expected.

Michael,
My first taste of scotch, so I'm giving it an eight but might adjust that later after trying more. Smoky in the beginning, started the tasting neat, but then on the rocks brought out the Vanilla and caramel. Finished with some Coke and tasted some spicy fruity flavors.

Michael,
After having the 12 year old 2002, gotta say I prefer the Ardmore! Still rating it an 8 though.

Too smoky for my tastes...

Eli,
Sweet, lightly floral, underlying peat, heat on the finish. A bit boring but not bad
