“88/100 (= Very good to excellent whiskies definitely worth buying) nose 23 – taste 23 – finish 20 – balance 22. Had the cask been just a little kinder, we would have had a superdram on our hands. As it is, one to hunt and explore.” (Jim Murray – Whisky Bibble 2013)

Ardmore distillery
La distillerie Ardmore est située tout près de la gare de Kennethmonth, une petite localité au sud de Huntly. La ligne de chemin de fer relie Aberdeen à Inverness. Comme elle se trouve pour ainsi dire en bordure de la région du Speyside, il arrive qu’elle soit attribuée aux Highlands de l’Est.
La distillerie Ardmore a chauffé ses alambics en forme d’oignons au charbon jusqu’en 2000 mais est passée actuellement à un système de chauffage indirect à la vapeur.
La distillerie Ardmore est une des plus grandes et des plus modernes distilleries d’Ecosse, et produit annuellement plus de 5.100.000 de litres.
La distillerie est la seule de la région à avoir utilisé la tourbe de façon constante depuis sa création. Ardmore possède par ailleurs sa propre tonnellerie.

With their landscapes, high mountains, abundant lakes and all the islands off the coast, the Highlands are one of the most varied and spectacular regions in Scotland. 
Whiskies from the Highlands are generally more sustained and stronger than those from Speyside. They have very varied tastes according to the place of production. Lightly peated and coastal flavours in the north, malty and fruity in the south.
