The Ardmore Highland Single Malt 20 Year
Due to the reliance on Ardmore to create quality whisky for use in blends, it is only recently that the Highland distillery has begun to establish a presence as single malt. Yet, here we are. A single malt, matured for 20 years in bourbon and ex-Islay casks, on the doorstep of MoM towers.
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.
