Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Brave New Spirits 70cl / 58.5%
A 9-year-old Ardmore 2012, bottled in 2022 without colouring or chill filtration by Brave New Spirits for their Cask Noir range, which pays tribute to classic film noir - subtitling this Ardmore as When Eagles Watch, presumably in reference to the eagle used on Ardmore's official bottlings.
This 2012 Ardmore 9-year-old was bottled from an ex-Islay cask #803809 (perhaps from one of its sister distilleries Bowmore or Laphroaig?) for extra phenolic oomph, and yielded a total 255 bottles at a hefty natural strength of 58.5%.
