The Oddbins Take

They Say

A beautiful burnished gold colour, the maturity that shows through comes from the American barrels and the spicy creamy nose from the old style smaller casks. The rich softness combines with just enough earthy peat smoke to avoid being overpowering. On the palate the full rich flavours burst and fill the mouth with a creamy peat tang and a touch of soft vanilla. The full-bodied smoothness can be best appreciated at bottling strength but, with a touch of water, the full whisky’s complexity can be enjoyed.

We Say

Rich in evocative flavours that burst out louder than life, we know who this is… Alter Ego: Lord Alfred Tennyson; a man with his head in the clouds, he also liked to pretend he was an eagle; so he’d fit right in at Ardmore, where they are rather fond of the magnificent Scottish Golden Eagles that ride the warm thermals above the distillery.

The Ardmore distillery is situated 600 feet above sea level in a remote corner of Aberdeenshire and hasn't changed much since its launch in 1898, still drawing water from the naturally rising springs on Knockandy Hill
