Single Malts of Scotland, Reserve Cask Ardlair 11YO (700ml)
Single Malts of Scotland,
Reserve Casks, Ardlair 11YO
A small batch of three sherry butts from Ardmore Distillery have been used to create this unpeated Highland Single Malt, distilled in 2010 and aged for 11 years. This is a rich, deep whisky with nuances of wood spice and creamy dark fruit.
Nose: Beautifully intense notes of linseed oil which gives way to vanilla ice cream rippled with blackberry coulis. Wood spice creates a beautiful balance with the vanilla and fruit and warms up on the nose as spicy sandalwood.
Taste: Dark runny honey creates a luscious ear thiness that gives the backbone to this dram. Warming notes from baking spices - cinnamon, nutmeg and Madagascan vanilla combine with the honey to give a sweet, creamy and rich flavour profile that is truly ambrosian.
Finish: As you breathe through each sip, forest floor elements begin to develop as if walking through the woods after its rained. The finish lingers and dark fruits from the nose make an appearance once again, leaving you with bright jammy notes.Non Chill Filtered, No Colour Added
