Product Description

Official releases of Ardmore with an age statement are very rare indeed and for me one of the most under the radar distilleries in Scotland, a peated Speyside that has more in common with an Island single malt like Highland Park than the traditional Speyside style.

Nose: Earthy peat is present from the start, with clean citrus notes of melon and lemon underneath. Chocolate digestives, honey, red apple and old oak round off an impressive nose.

Palate: Peppery peat develops more, not drying, but heating and softening the palate to reveal a robust vanilla that maintains among flares of flamed orange peel. Crushed summer berries and Scottish alfresco notes of freshly Scots pine and thick, meadow grass join with aplomb.

Finish: A light, honey'd finish, elegant peat carries throughout that lets a needed sweetness permeate, with the gentle presence of a sprig of rosemary.

A stunning twenty year old offering aged in a combination of Ex-Bourbon and Ex-Islay casks for an extra depth of peat smoke from one of my favourite distilleries and great value for money too.
