Ardmore Traditional Cask Highland Single Malt
Country of Origin: Scotland
A Travel Retail exclusive, The Ardmore® Tradition is a taste of history itself, journeying back to a time when most Highland distilleries dried their barley with the sweet smoke of local Highland peat. Double matured in oak barrels then smaller Quarter Casks, The Ardmore® Tradition is a full and rich liquid, with unique Highland peat smoke ﬂavours.
Colour - Burnished Gold
Nose - At bottle strength (46%), the influence of both maturations compliment each other producing a full bodied smooth aroma. The maturity comes from the American barrels and the spicy, creamy nose from the old style smaller casks.
Palate - The full rich flavours burst and fill the mouth with a creamy peat tang and a touch of vanilla’s soft gentleness. If a touch of water is added, then the flavours increase with the addition of a sweet ripe fruit start followed by a tang of peat.
Finish - Full, succulent and quite long.
