To celebrate the launch of my new book, The GreatDrams of Scotland, I worked with the fine folks at Douglas Laing
to choose a cask that I would bottle in commemoration, and after going through a number of samples,
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.
Age: 8 Years Old
Distilled: July 2009
Bottled: September 2017
Cask type: Refill Hogshead
Volume: 70cl / 700ml
Limited: 299 bottles globally
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.
What are you waiting for? Pick up your bottle of this limited edition Ardmore 8 Year Old Single Cask Single Malt Whisky today and pour away as you read through The GreatDrams of Scotland.
