The price of whisky has become quite the talking point in the past few years, but we’ve been blown away by the value for money from this new Ardmore. Aged for 20 years, initially in 1st fill bourbon casks and then in Islay casks to create a deep, full and zesty character.

Official Tasting Notes Nose: Butterscotch, toasted nutmeg and fig jam. With the addition of water, vanilla sweetness, stewed apples, subtle peat smoke and orange zest.
Palate: Lingering vanilla sweetness, crisp, dry smoky notes.

Thoughts on whiskey: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough. ”

“Whisky, drink divine!
Why should drivelers bore us
With the praise of wine
While we’ve thee before us?”
(Joseph O’Leary)

I am gratified to learn that you enjoy learning about Scotch Whisky.

Here’s tae the heath, the hill and the heather,
The bonnet, the plaid, the kilt and the feather.

Slàinte mhòr agus a h-uile beannachd duibh.
Great health and every good blessing to you

Your Scotch Spirit Master
