Located on the most westerly point of the British mainland sits the Ardnamurchan Distillery. Probably one of the most sustainable distilleries in the United Kingdom if not the world, plenty of thought has been given to the environment before designing and developing this distillery. There’s a local hydro-electric generator that provides the cooling water and local forest wood chips that are used to heat the hot water for mashing. The draft left behind after the mash is used to feed local cattle and the pot ale is used for fertilising local fields. Owned and operated by Adelphi the distillery it boasts 2 stills and 7 wash backs. The owners of the distillery are also a very well know quality independent bottler.
This is the second release of the Ardnamurchan Single Malt Cask Strength edition. Unlike the 46.8% core release, this recipe packs a punch. This time the distillery has opted for a higher percentage of peated whisky compared to previous releases, aged in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, alongside unpeated, sherry-aged malt. Bottled at 58.4% ABV.
Nose: Maritime smoke combines with vanilla and lemon zest with some lovely oak notes.
Palate: Peat and sea salt at first leading to summer berries, toasted oak and a wonderful peppery spice.
Finish: Lingering peat smoke with sea salt and soft spice.
