Description

Experience whisky as it should be experienced with this gift set.

The Whisky Glass and Dram Gift set includes the Glencairn Whisky Glass (it won the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2006) and a dram (25ml) of Limited Edition Ardmore 8 year old single cask malt whisky, exclusively bottled for GreatDrams.

The set comes gift wrapped complete with gift tag for you to personalise.

The Glencairn glass gives you a perfect tapering at the top for nosing, and a nice, big bowl below that enhances tasting. This is combined with good, solid bulk at the very bottom to give you that sturdiness I’ve always enjoyed with a tumbler, but which is lacking in thin-stemmed nosing copitas.

This Ardmore 8 Year Old Single Cask Single Malt Whisky hit me as the one to choose; not only does it taste fantastic, but Ardmore was actually the first Scottish whisky distillery I ever visited, and happens to feature in the book for being part of the Teacher’s blend recipe.

Distillery: Ardmore
Region: Highlands
Age: 8 Years Old
Distilled: July 2009
Bottled: September 2017
Cask type: Refill Hogshead
ABV: 46%
Volume: 70cl / 700ml
Limited: 299 bottles globally
Non-chill filtered
Natural colour

Bottled under the Douglas Laing Provenance label they explain as being “bottled exactly as the distiller intended – without colouring and without chill filtration,
so that the naturally present oils, fats and enzymes in the Whisky are allowed to make their own special contribution to the nose, mouthfeel, palate and finish”. 

My notes when choosing which cask to bottle read like this:

The nose combines light smoke, subtle honey, tropical fruits & a wisp of toasted pineapple. Each evokes gloriously sweet smoke, molten toffee & lovely oaky note with a biscuity character, finishing with soft white pepper spice.
