The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks. Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles. While this means that we can never replicate the particular character of this Single Malt, it also offers an opportunity to sample what we believe to be an exceptional example of the whisky made by one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries.

No coastal influence here but plenty of peat! Ardmore Distillery is in the Eastern Highlands and stands out because most of its spirit is made from peated barley fermented in fourteen wooden wash-backs. Here we have an initial smokiness from the phenols in the barley reinforced by being aged in re-used Islay barrels. This lifts the wood-smoke elements which are then balanced and sweeter touches are evident on the palate with a light hint of cloves and peaty cinnamon in the finish. This select Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been bottled without any colouring or chill filtration.
