This Highland single malt was distilled in 2009 at Ardmore distillery. After nine years in a single refill hogshead, this expression was bottled in 2019 by family-run independent bottler Hunter Laing & Co. as part of the First Editions series. Only 241 bottles have been filled at a preferred strength of 46% abv, free from chill filtration and artificial colouring.
The nose has sweet toffee in a peppery smoke. The palate brings powerful peat and iodine with a touch of vanilla sweetness, before a long and lingering finish with peat and oak notes.
