Ardmore 21yo 1997 Gordon MacPhail 70cl 47.8%
NOSE: Complex; polished oak, peat smoke, and caramel transform into brown sugar syrup. Aromas of cinnamon baked apples dipped in rich dark chocolate open to reveal rum and raisin.
TASTE: Flavours of sherry and mature oak intertwine with thick, mouth-coating seville orange marmalade. Hazelnut centred chocolate notes evolve into smouldering bonfire embers.
FINISH: Medium; blackcurrant jam and hints of refreshing menthol.
