Scotland > Highland > Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Ardmore
Our first exclusive single cask for a couple of years from Berry Bros. & Rudd is a 2010 8 year old Ardmore. The whisky has been bottled exclusively for KWM at 58.2% after matruing in an ex-Islay Bourbon Barrel... Ardmore is lightly peated as it is, but this is sure to kick it up a notch! As Ardmore is owned by the same company as Laphroaig, is it too much of a leap to assume this was matured in an ex-Laphroaig cask?
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: fresh, honeyed and ashy with juicy malt; heathery honey, marmalade and peanut brittle; a touch of pork belly with an apple jelly.
Palate: big, honeyed and ashy with loads of chewy juicy malty, more marmalade, a touch of tar and briny maritime notes; crispy pork belly with apple jelly and dark spices: clove and fennel.
Finish: big, long and coating; more juicy malt, ashy peat and honey.
Comment: young and rambunctious; we aren't going to try and pretend that this is enormously complex, it is 8 years old, but it is a layered, solid, peaty malt and a steal at $75 a bottle!
