Ardnamurchan Spirit

Ardnamurchan Distillery opened in July 2014. Some information from their website:

In the meantime, our parent company, Adelphi Distillery, continues to source the rarest and finest single casks of exceptional malt whisky, under the Adelphi Selection brands.

This spirit is distilled in 2015 and bottled 2016. It was matured in 29 Oloroso & Pedro Ximénez Sherry Octaves which gave 2500 bottles. It was bottled at 53 ABV. There was another release from 2017 made available in Norway, but it is sold out now.

Candy on the nose. It is fruity and smooth. I get vanilla, vanilla sugar, peaches, nuts, peanut shell, green grapes and orange peel. It is a bit dusty. Really smooth and rich on the palate. Spicy. Vanilla, tropical fruits and white pepper. Melon. The finish is spicy and buttery. Peanuts and some fruitiness. I would never have guessed this was not whisky yet!

My score: nose 21 / taste 22 / finish 21 / balance 21 = 84

– Tone
