Serge Valentin (88)

You'd have to enjoy your whisky sweet and smoky. If so, there's no reason to hesitate.
Nose
Very sweet with plenty of candied fruits, strawberry glaze and dates, as well as Maraschino cherries and a few drops of iodine, followed by soot and creosote. The cask has been very active here.
Taste
Sticky mouthfeel with plenty of sweet red cherries, but also charred meat with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Some burnt caramel and brown sugar too. And before I forget, of course there's plenty of peat smoke to enjoy.
Finish
Smoked paprika powder, burlap and a touch of smoked peanut skins. Long.

Words Of Whisky:

This Ardmore 1988 from Michiel Wigman is a delight and a very refreshing change of pace.
Nose
It's gentle and fresh with just a hint of soot and bandages, but mostly sweet fruits like nectarines, tinned pineapple and lemon. It has a lovely creamy quality with notes of banana custard and honey. Finally a touch of walnuts as well as some faint minerals.
Taste
Great to see it's still very much an Ardmore on the palate, but more soothing than the ones I've tried so far, which have been 20-years-old at the most. Gentle earthy peat smoke with a hint of thyme and touches of pineapple juice as well as cinnamon sprinkled apple parts. Just a pinch of black pepper and menthol as well. Rather fantastic.
Finish
Somewhat herbal and surely more menthol and mint, with just a touch of wood smoke. Impressive.
