Ardmore Traditional Cask

Speyside

 

Ardmore is the only Highland distillery that still routinely fully "peats" its standard malt. It also uses traditional methods to mature the whisky, hence the name. The Traditional Cask is double matured, first in oak barrels, then in smaller Quarter Casks, giving a unique smoothness to the whisky.

Age:  No age statement.

Color:  Burnished Gold

Nose:  Fresh vanilla, peat, fruit and spices.

ABV:  46%

Awards:  SFWSC 2010 Double Gold, SFWSC 2009 Double Gold. SFSC 2008 Gold, IWSC 2008 Gold

SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRING

Chuao - Morocho, Black & White, Grignottine

A dream of a dram for pairing.  Goes with many chocolates in our collections, our favorites being Morocho to bring out the fruitiness, Black & White accentuates the malty/peatiness and Grignottine provides an interesting textural difference.
