  1. Official tasting note

    official information for Ardgowan Discovery No.1

    At Ardgowan Distillery we have been exceptionally fortunate to have access to some of Scotland’s finest casks of single malt which gives us the opportunity to create some remarkable whiskies. On rare occasions we find casks that have something really special maturing inside.

    Max McFarlane, our whisky maker, found a couple of such casks and we fell in love with them. However, there is simply not enough liquid to produce the volumes we require for the Clydebuilt Series, and so we are bottling these casks as a limited-edition 500-bottle single malt release, which we have called Discovery 1.

    Anyone who has enjoyed the richness of our Coppersmith blended malt (WBID# 139330) will know how vital sherry oak casks are to Max's whisky making process and Discovery 1 is no exception.

    This lowland single malt Scotch whisky was distilled in 2011 and has been sitting in rich Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for over two years which has given it a long, dark, fruity finish.
