Golden Cask Ardmore 12 Year Old Description

The Golden Cask range of whiskies are specially selected to give a representation of the distillery and region of their origin. This Ardmore 12 Year Old has been matured in an ex-bourbon American oak cask, distilled in December 2008 and bottled in March 2021, left free from chill filtration and at a cask strength of 60.3% ABV. A truly one of a kind whisky, this is a single cask release limited to 225 bottles.

A highland malt, Ardmore is usually medium smoky in character anyway but this one is bumped up in smoke levels with it's 100% maturation in a barrel previously used to mature an Islay malt. Very interesting!

Hamish Says

Nose: aromas are instantly smoky with iodine and very heady.

Palate: candied sweet, mint toffee and creamy white chocolate with a touch of water revealing fresh summer grass, fruit salad chews and a light nuttiness.

Finish: nice oily texture, malty and chocolatey with mellow scorched grass and some sweet tobacco smoke.
