Ardmore is an active distillery located within the Highland region near Huntly in Aberdeenshire. Founded in 1898 its name translates from Gaelic as ‘big promontory’.
The distillery was created to provide a good-quality smoky spirit for blends and so for a long time it was very rare to find an Ardmore single malt.
The distillate produced is of a medium peat level, with a medium-body and sweetness, expressing malty and sherry notes with hints of honey and spice.
This release of Ardmore was matured for 8 years in a first-fill bourbon barrel #2615b. Distilled on the 13th of October 2007. We took 50 litres to mature in a Pedro Ximenez sherry octave in the hope the spirit would extract those incredibly sweet sherry flavours. In no more than 3 months we had achieved that with a yield of 58 bottles.
On the nose, enjoy marzipan, honey and almonds with a lingering smokiness and hints of seaweed. The palate is immersed in strawberry bubble-gum with a smoky aftertaste.
Thinking about how to gift Whisky, why not try out gift sets?
Our gift sets include the bottle of your choice presented in our oak box with a set of Glencairn tasting glasses.
Glencairn glasses are an excellent accompaniment to any Whisky tasting because their bell shape allows for complex Whisky aromas to be trapped in the glass making them ideal for nosing and sipping. They also have the added benefit that if the glass tips over all of the spirit doesn't splash out!
