Ardmore 21 yo (1996/2017), The Single Cask, 53,8%

Review #708
A single cask from The Single Cask. It is matured in a Bourbon barrel with the cask number AR96A and only 60 bottles were made. White fruits with grassy notes in the smell. White grapes and sweet shortbread.

A bit ‘darker’ notes comes forward in the taste. White fruits again, but with a burned oak touch. Vanilla and salted caramel. The finish is nice, warm and long. Some brown sugar joins in, alongside the other flavours.

A great Bourbon matured whisky with loads of flavour, and even though it is more than 21 years old, the oak isn’t too dominating (and that is meant in a positive sense). I will give this 89/100 (22/22/23/22).
