A Travel Retail exclusive, The Ardmore® Tradition is a taste of history itself, journeying back to a time when most Highland distilleries dried their barley with the sweet smoke of local Highland peat. Double matured in oak barrels then smaller Quarter Casks, The Ardmore® Tradition is a full and rich liquid, with unique Highland peat smoke ?avours.
Colour – Burnished Gold
Nose – At bottle strength (46%), the influence of both maturations compliment each other producing a full bodied smooth aroma. The maturity comes from the American barrels and the spicy, creamy nose from the old style smaller casks.
Palate – The 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, then the flavours increase with the addition of a sweet ripe fruit start followed by a tang of peat.
Finish – Full, succulent and quite long.
