La distillerie Ardmore
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.

The Bottler
Cumbrae specialises in the handling and bottling of Single Cask Scotch Malt Whiskies. We have our own brand of ‘The Golden Cask’ which we are currently selling to Austria, France, The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Italy with new markets in Finland and also Belgium (imported by Le Chemin des Vignes – La Boutique du Chemin).
The Golden Cask range is high end, aged single casks bottled at cask strength. Nothing is added and nothing is taken away.
We bottle with care without chill filtering in order to retain the characteristic aromas and flavour in full.
The Golden Cask bottlings are aimed at the connoisseur and collector. We work with John McDougall, whisky expert, who assists us in choosing our casks and deciding when to bottle them. His help has been invaluable to the growth of our business.
We aim to provide a unique product of finest quality at a sensible price.

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.

Notes de dégustation

Colour: pale gold.
Nose: first, the fruits (apple, pear, apricot and some citrus) are in front of the stage. Yet, a fine and subtle dusty and (also) fruity smoke soon grows and becomes the star of this nose.
Palate: very sweet notes of vanilla and fruit (a juicy sun-drenched basket of fruit). Smoked spices globally lift this rather traditional mouth.
Final: the final is short. The fruity smoke persists briefly. Then some soft spices settled on the tongue. A little dusty wood appeared.
