The most recent addition to our line of exclusive single casks, this cask of peated Ardnamurchan is very exciting for us. Ardnamurchan, located on the Ardnamurchan peninsula on the western coast of Scotland, was founded by the Adelphi company in 2013, with the first spirit coming off the stills in 2014. Ardnamurchan produces both peated and unpeated spirit, while also focusing on producing an honest and environmentally conscious spirit. Headed up by Alex Bruce, with a touch of help from Charles Maclean, the team have produced some belting whisky in their short stint as a distillery.
Nose: Incredibly coastal, notes of hot sand, sea spray and slate. A touch of preserved lemon, honey dew melons and Bounty chocolates.
Palate: This dram takes you to a bakery with a wood fired oven. Notes of vanilla slice, toasted banana bread and Turkish delight stand up to the massive coastal minerality and wood smoke on the mid to back palate.
Finish: Green bananas and limestone.
