Product Description

A Travel retail exclusive Matured for a final finish in American oak Quarter Casks.

Having been replaced by the Legacy bottled at 40% the original Traditional is now delisted, so this bottle offers you something closer to that 46% ABV version.

Nose: Smoked cured meat (billatong?) new leather, aniseed, coal tar smoke, sooty white pepper, vanilla pods, waxy-quince like, game pate with smoked red berries, earthy smoked cheese.

Palate: Great delivery of earthy sweet smoked or cured meats, red berries, charred vanillin oak, aniseed & toffee. Quite a fat and buttery body/mouthfeel.

Finish: Smoked vanilla, raisin fudge, earthy/leathery notes, cured game salami, aniseed and peppery oak.

Ardmore for me is a forgotten gem of a distillery that seems to be sadly unloved by its owners, with most of it going for blending stock. A great stepping stone into the delights of richly peated malt before leaping into Islay.
