You’d be forgiven for assuming this was an Islay whisky if tasting blind. Close your eyes and you can imagine sipping this on an island beach. The wonderful lingering long lasting finish isn’t one you’ll forget any time soon.

It was in 1898 that Adam Teacher, son of Glasgow blender William Teacher, decided that the family firm needed its own malt whisky distillery and Ardmore was born.
Ardmore has remained in the Teacher’s stable ever since, providing smoke and also top notes to a blend which still sells over a million cases globally. Its importance for its blend has meant that Ardmore has never had a presence as a single malt. A quarter cask-finished bottling appeared a few years after Laphroaig Quarter Cask, but remained a small-scale release.
It has however, built up a small but dedicated following among single malt aficionados who seek out the independent bottlings which appear.

Nose: A nose of sweet tobacco, toasted oak, sweet herbal peat and crème brûlée. This sweet smoke continues with water but with vanilla notes becoming more prominent.
Taste: The palate lives up to the nose – sweet & chewy with lots of smoky embers coming through. The addition of water heightens the sweetness.
