Ardmore 17 Year Old / Tri Carragh / Single Cask
55.3% ABV (Cask Strength)
1 of 312 Bottles from a Refill Bourbon Hogshead
Part of the second release from this fantastic new indy bottler.
Appearance: Light gold, young dessert wine.
Aroma: A nose of sweet tobacco, toasted oak, sweet herbal peat and crème brûlée. This sweet smoke continues with water but with the vanilla notes becoming more prominent.
Taste: The pallet lives up to the nose - sweet & chewy with lots of smoky embers coming through. The addition of water heightens the sweeter notes. Comment: You’d be forgiven for assuming this was an Islay whisky if tasting blind. Close your eyes and can imagine sipping this on a island beach.The long lasting finish isn’t one you’ll forget. It lingers wonderfully.
