It would appear the angels haven’t had a single drop from this 1st fill American bourbon oak cask.
N: Ardnamurchan is another of Jim Swan’s legacy projects, but Ardnamurchan have avoided the STR route and utilised an ex-bourbon cask without too much tannin activity. In fact there’s been very little STR all weekend I’m relieved to say. The result is a lovely, relatively softened spirit.
T: This is a seriously good spirit with a touch of cocoa. The profile is rich and heavy.
F: Lemonade to cherry aid & apple juice.
C: Though just a demonstrative cask sample, it’s one that’s easily score-worthy.
