Interesting fact… Ardmore 16 Year Old 1996 Cask 8020 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Ardmore 16 Year Old 1996 Cask 8020 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Wood ash and hints of smoked meat. A little gingernut, barley and allspice.
Palate: Oily, spicy palate with big notes of wood smoke and pepper.
Finish: Citrusy finish. Hints of wood ash on the tail.
Overall: A smouldering, spicy Ardmore...
