Ardmore - 2008 - 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Mossburn Vintage Casks No 25.
The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of exceptional Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks.
Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles.
No coastal influence here, but plenty of peat! Ardmore Distillery is in the Eastern Highlands and stands out because most of its spirit is made from
peated barley fermented in fourteen wooden washbacks.
Here we have an initial smokiness from the phenols in the barley re-enforced by being aged in re-used Islay barrels. This lifts the woodsmoke
elements which are then balanced out with some light vanilla and apple notes.
More smoky flavours and sweeter touches are evident on the palate with a light hint of cloves and peaty cinnamon in the finish.
