An 18-year-old Ardmore which has had the rare treatment of being matured in an ex-rum cask.
Distilled 26 June 1999, this was bottled as an 18-year-old at 56.4%. The cask yielded just 198 bottles.
This has a musty, malty sweetness on the nose – brown sugar mixed with earth. Ripe fruits pushing through – orange flesh, pineapple essence.
Palate is a little muddy, good weight to it, but it’s lifted but hits of barley sugar which carry into quite a nice long finish.
This comes part of the Creative Whisky Company’s Exclusive Malts single cask series.
