Artist Whisky Ardmore La Maison Du Whisky 11 year old
|United Kingdom, Scotland
On the border between Speyside and the eastern Highlands, Ardmore was established in 1897 and remains a truly authentic, old style Single Malt producer in the region. Its whisky has a strong character which easily could be mistaken as coming from the Scottish islands. Thanks to a growing popularity in many independent bottlings, Ardmore is gaining recognition and has developed a strong following amongst connoisseurs of Single Malt Scotch. This is a particularly dense and concentrated expression of Ardmore, with an imposing peaty and medicinal profile. Beyond the obvious smoke- driven component, it reveals an abundantly fruity, floral, yet deeply malty character with a rich, oily texture and fragrant notes of green fruit. Profile: Rich and concentrated. Nose: Bacon, camphor, petrol. Palate: Lilac, gentian, fresh pear, apple skin. Finish: Dark chocolate, incense, black pepper, clove, and smoked bacon.
