Ardmore 1997 / 21 Year Old / Old Particular Highland Whisky
70cl / 51.5% / Douglas Laing - This 1997 Ardmore was bottled in 2018 by Douglas Laing for its Old Particular series. Matured for 21 years in a single refill hogshead, this Highland single malt has an elegant, refined character. The nose is earthy and rich, with orange peel, cloves and black pepper building gently. The palate is chalky and drying, with sharp blueberries and blackcurrants leading the palate, and rich malt building into a lightly smoky finish.
