      Beyond the Label

      When people think of smokey whisky their minds immediately turn to Islay with its salty, iodine-laden peat.  But this is not representative of the whole.  Ardmore, in the Scottish Highlands, uses a much more delicate peat that introduces floral notes, roasted sweets, and even grilled meat flavors on occasion.  The peat smoke also plays more of a complementary role, making Ardmore far more approachable and even delicate - especially when compared with what people have in their minds for peated Scotch.

       

      This specific single cask of Ardmore strikes a unique balance, having been aged in Bourbon Barrels (enhancing the sweeter notes) which previously were used to age Islay whiskies (providing a subtle boost to Ardmore's typical smokiness).  It clearly has peat and smoke, but is surprisingly light, smooth, and drinks with a sweet earthiness surrounded by fragrant smoke.  The Highland peat pairs well with that re-used Islay cask to yield a complex peat profile that is totally unexpected for something 9 years old: with enough oomph to appease peat freaks but enough delicate complexity for those who find youthful Islay too intense.

      Scent and Flavor

      NOSE

      The nose offers dry leaves, mint, menthol cigarettes, grilled lamb, chocolate covered strawberries, and Nutella on browned toast.

      TASTE

      Tasting it, you find it is smokey, but surprisingly light-bodied and smooth. You have a sweet, earthy peat and gentle smoke.

      PALATE

      The taste continues with some grilled lamb and offers up some sweeter notes, like cherry.

      FINISH

      As it settles, you find a slight charred taste lingering, along with morning dew, coastline fog, and a candied bacon.
