Ardnamurchan is still something of a novelty - we've heard about it for some time, we know it's out there, but it's still a very pleasant surprise when one of them actually turns up.
This one looks like the real thing, a sherried Ardnamurchan 2015 bottled in 2021 as a 5-year-old by the distillery's parent company Adelphi from a small (ok, very small) batch of two ex-Oloroso sherry casks at a potent full cask strength of 59.3%.

Nose: Bouquet of dark cherry liqueur chocolates with grated nutmeg, initially nose drying and eucalyptic. Rum toft in the development with plums, [eaches and oranges, becoming more savoury: a marmalade-glazed smoked ham (rested), and sweet smoked cheese notes.
Palate: An oily mouth-filling texture, starting tangy with a mid-palate of edible dried seaweed and sea salt, then roasted sweet chestnuts (slightly smoky from fire), new hessian and autumn bonfires. Complex and ever-changing, like the weather on Ardnamurchan.
