The Ardmore Portwood 12 Year Old Malt, Highland Whiskey, Scotland
The Ardmore distillery has been distilling the finest highland malt whisky since 1898 and whilst the world has moved on little has changed up there. The magnificent Scottish Golden eagle is still found riding the warm thermals above the distillery. For us they represent a symbol of our adherence to the traditional ways. These ways have ensured a distinctive taste that is full and rich, with unique and rare highland peat-smoke tones, followed by a smooth, subtle sweetness.
Ardmore 12 Year Old Port Wood Finish was a 2015 addition to the distillery's core range. Aged initially in American white oak bourbon casks, it was finished in port pipes, which has imparted a wine like sweetness to the whisky, joined by a little vanilla from the bourbon casks, with notes of apple, honey and smoke.
