Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Berry Brothers & Rudd 70cl / 59.6%
An 11-year-old Ardmore 2012 single cask bottled in 2023 without colouring or chill filtration by our affluent wax-jacketed chums at Berry Bros & Rudd.
This 2012 Ardmore 11-year-old matured in a sherry butt that yielded a generous 661 bottles at a hefty cask strength of 59.6% and shows big phenols with savoury malt notes and balancing honey. A bit of a bruiser at full strength, this opens very nicely with a drop of water.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: The unique earthy wood smoke drifting out of the glass can only announce the arrival of Ardmore, one of the Highland’s most characterful drams. Ash, hessian, kippers and digestive biscuits mingle with great balance, with a hint of tobacco and fruit cake appearing after some time in the glass.
Palate: The palate is tremendously smoky, yet still very subtle, with notes of cedar, smoked straw, pipe tobacco and lime zest.
Finish: Woodland bonfire smoke lasts long on the palate. This is the perfect hill-walking dram – enjoy it at cask strength in gale force wind and rain.
