Description/ Tasting NotesBright deep golds with heavy legs, the Ardmore Traditional Cask 1898 has nose characters of seaside - salt and seaweed and vanilla and cream sweet spiciness. Lovely peaty smokiness in the background. Initial hot and ginger spicy burst on the tongue tapers off to some sweet wood spice, creamy vanilla sweetness and lovely peaty smokiness. Medium and warm with subdued lingering spiciness and soft smoky end.
Winery Info/ Brand
Ardmore distillery is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery. The distillery is owned and operated by Beam Suntory, an American subsidiary of Suntory Holdings of Osaka, Japan. The distillery was built in 1898 by William Teacher's son, Adam, to secure fillings for their blend, Teacher's Highland Cream (of which it remains the principal component). It is set deep in the farmland of "the Garioch", near the River Bogie and the village Kennethmont, Huntly, Aberdeenshire.
Region Info/ Origin
Highland - Scotland’s largest whisky region boasts a dizzying array of styles, from rich and textured to fragrantly floral, as befits an ever-changing landscape of coastline, moor and mountain. Even without the famed Speyside enclave, you’ll find some of whisky’s most famous names here – and some of its most fiercely individual spirits.
