A 10-year-old Ardmore bottled by Hidden Spirits
Distilled in 2010 this is peated spirit from the highland distilled, finished for the last 26 minths in a ex-Lochindaal cask. Lochindaal is a rare strain of whisky distilled by Bruichladdich that is heavily peated - moreso than Port Charlotte, but less than Octomore.
Bottled 2020 as a 10-year-old, the cask produced 262 bottles at 54.1%.
Andrea Ferrari opened Hidden Spirits in 2013 and is meticulous in his cask selection. Trying the whiskies 3 times in one day before settling on whether to bottle or not. Once in the morning, afternoon and evening. The tasting must impress him on each occasion to be bottled. He uses Italian artists to create unique labels for each cask.
