Ardmore 1988 31 Year Old Platinum Old & Rare Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review

Whiskey: Ardmore 1988 31 Year Old Platinum Old & Rare Highland Single Malt Scotch

Ardmore is well known for being one of the few Speysiders that focus on smoky whisky, and this 31-year-old 1988-vintage shows how that has developed after more than three decades in cask. It's still meaty, smoky and oily, but the age has softened the smoke into a leathery cape.
