A part of Ardnamurchan distillery's 2023 bottlings, this AD Sherry Cask Release is a gorgeously rich and decadent dram. The expression has been made from both peated and unpeated barley, and matured in a combination of first fill Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks before being bottled at 50% abv. 

Expect aromas of cherries and roasted almond, which lead to lashings of dried fruits on the mouth-coating palate. Touches of caramel, toasted oak and earthy peat follow, and linger on into the finish.
