This was my second Ardmore bottling to try, after sampling a 25yr at a whisky show a little while back. I thought with this I would go back to the start and the base of the range in order to get a better feel for the malt. There is no age statement on the bottle, but reports are that its around 6-8 years old (according to The Whisky Exchange)

First off, its superb value, extremely reasonable price for what turns out to be a deceptively high class of whisky in my eyes. It has a big peaty presence throughout, but is surprisingly easy to drink. It’s bold, full of flavour and has a finish that lingers for an age, never growing old!

I’ve read in some reviews that it’s best tasted with a drop of water, however I must disagree. After doing so I felt that it lost a lot of its feel and character, almost becoming plain. To really get the full benefit of this dram you need it neat without corruption!

I totally agree with you. I tasted this whisky a few times and it is very good for the price. It deserves an 88 note for sure. Very malty, full of flavour and the finish...
