Description

The Ardmore 20 years old 1996 is an older peated Highlands singel malt from the Ardmore distillery. It was distilled in 1996 and matured in first fill bourbon and ex-Islay casks for 20 years. It was bottled in 2017 at 49,3% ABV, non chill filtered and with no added colour.

Nose: Earthy peat is present from the start, with clean citrus notes of melon and lemon underneath. Chocolate digestives, honey, red apple and old oak round off an impressive nose.

Palate: Peppery peat develops more, not drying, but heating and softening the palate to reveal a robust vanilla that maintains among flares of flamed orange peel. Crushed summer berries and Scottish alfresco notes of freshly Scots pine and thick, meadow grass join with aplomb.

Finish: A light, honey'd finish, elegant peat carries throughout that lets a needed sweetness permeate, with the gentle presence of a sprig of rosemary.
