A new release of the beloved peated Highlander from Ardmore, even sweeter and maltier than before under the intense smokiness. Initially dominated by a huge blast of soot, tar and peat smoke, like a bonfire made of pine wood, it also has a balsamic freshness of mint, camphor and resin. Such smoky intensity finds a perfect foundation in the creamy, succulent richness and velvety body: fragrant vanilla from the ex-bourbon casks, honey, chamomile, with a hint of beeswax and juicy sweet liquorice. In the end, the delicate sourness of green bananas and fragrant lemon peel leave the palate stimulated, refreshed and ready for another sip. This Ardmore is bold, intense, but gifted with an open faced sunny vitality that will make it loved by any whisky connoisseur.
