You don’t get too many Ardmore bottlings matured in sherry casks, I suppose Asta Morris must have bought it as young spirit and decided to go for a sherry cask himself.
This is just 5 years old . When asked about the young age of this whisky, Bert simply answered because it wouldn’t make sense to age it longer and that’s probably the only right answer. Looking at the colour this must have been a very active (deeply charred?) cask.
Ardmore 5 yo 2013 (56,4%, Asta Morris 2019, sherry butt, 211 btl.)
Nose: lots of dark candy sugar,...
