Ardmore Portwood 12 Years Old




The Ardmore distillery sits at the highest point of the Northern railway line, 600 feet above sea level. Close to the small village of Kennethmont, the proximity to the railway line allowed founder Adam Teacher to transport materials from Glasgow to this remote corner of Aberdeenshire, helping the distillery flourish.

Almost unchanged from the moment he made his dream a reality, the water is still drawn from the naturally rising springs that sit on the 1,500 foot tall Knockandy Hill.

Those who live on the rugged fringes of the Highlands embrace the freedom of the great outdoors and The Ardmore® brings together the power of nature in every drop that travels from our distillery.
A unique and premium expression of The Ardmore®. Double cask matured in American white oak bourbon barrels and European half port pipes, resulting in a liquid that is light and sweet with a balance of fruity, smoky notes.
Non-chill filtered and aged for 12 years, this ruby gold single malt has been made using the same traditional distilling methods for 100 years.

Colour – Ruby gold.
Nose – Initial nose of strawberries and summer fruits with a hint of pepper. Notes of burnt orange and cinnamon spice underlie. With water, the rich fruit aromas of red apple and cranberry intensify, accompanied by sweet honey and subtle spiced wood notes.
Palate – Sweet red apple and honey with the subtlest hint of charcoal smoke.
Finish – Initially smooth with a long, lingering finish culminating in the trademark Ardmore dryness.
ABV – 46%
