Ardmore Highland Traditional is a uniquely complex and rewarding Highland malt that continues to be awarded Gold medals year after year.
Founded in 1898 by one of Scotland’s most renowned whisky families, Ardmore have continued to have an unshakable belief in traditional distilling methods.
Ardmore uses the aromatic smoke from natural, highland peat fires to dry their barley, making them the only Highland distillery that insists on fully peating their standard malt.
Aged in both America barrels and old style smaller casks, the former delivers Ardmore Traditional with its maturity, while the latter provides the spicy creamy nose. Both ultimately complement each other to produce a full bodied, smooth aroma.
Tasting Notes: Full rich flavours burst and fill the mouth with a creamy peat tang and a touch of vanilla’s soft gentleness. If a touch of water is added there is a sweet ripe fruit start followed by the tang of peat. Finish is full, succulent and quite long.
