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.
The much-anticipated 2023 Ardnamurchan Paul Launois Limited Release is finally here. If you are un-familiar with the Champagne House Paul Launois, you can find all the information needed HERE . Ardnamurchan receives 10 Paul Launois Champagne casks each year, and fills them with Ardnamurchan whisky previously aged in ex- bourbon barrels. These casks are aged until ready to be bottled as part of the annual Paul Launois Limited Release.
The third annual release sees unpeated spirit matured first in first fill Bourbon barrels before being rested in 195 litre ex-Wine Barriques from Domain Paul Launois for just over a year. Bottled at 57.10% Alc/Vol with no added colour and non chill filtered. It is, again, another wonderful release.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: A wonderful delicate nose of apple slice, custard tarts, white grapes, raisins soaked in rum, a little hint of calvados, malted barley and a soft subtle yeast note which is a bit like a fruity beer.
Palate: A lovely salty savoury note mingles with white pepper, hints of grapefruit and tangerines and ripe honeydew melon. Cedar wood and old cigars, lemon boiled sweeties.
Finish: Long, salty and sweet, vanilla fudge, espresso, ripe cherries, milk chocolate and oatcakes.
