Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky 
Bottled by: The Sipping Shed 70cl / 51.9%

New kids on the indie bottling block The Sipping Shed have been very careful with this cask of Ardmore 2009 - this is the third and final bottling they've had out of it, with only a tiny number of bottles yielded for each edition.

Fittingly, this final run from Cask 1313B is the best yet, with the 12-year-old Ardmore spirit given a quick gussy-up in a Pedro Ximenez octave before bottling without colouring or chill filtration at its full cask strength of 51.9%. A cracking peat'n'sherry combo and perfect for winter.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Earthy, meaty, bacon frazzles, leather, honey and some floral notes along with gentle spices, pine needles, and slight grassy note. Herby sausages juxtapose a sweeter, spicier sherry dimension. Liquorice, touch of yeasty dough. An instant charmer with much to explore.

Altogether more gentle than the punchy nose suggests. Lashings of warm sweet peat, pine wood chips thrown on to a barbeque to cook those herby sausages from the nose, with sweetness and spice from the PX cask. A fresh earthiness comes through, more so with water, while the sherry notes add a familiar layer of cake mix. The balance is perfect – the indomitable spirit remains in control throughout with the casks refining rather than defining the whisky.

Smoky and sweet, fades quickly at first and then lingers faintly for quite some time. I’ll have another if you don’t mind!
