The Sipping Shed The Sipping Shed Ardmore 2009 (11 year old) 56%

ABV: 56
Bottle size: 70
Primary Cask: American oak
In stock

Bourbon Cask 1313
Dist: Jun 2009 Btl: Jun 2020
Tasted: Nov 2020
The nose displays and intense alcohol prickle and plenty of meaty, tarry peat. Yes, it's a real peat monster! Beneath lies a touch of green fruit, waxy barley, sweet apricot, white fruit and soot.

The palate is a little mellower and fruitier to begin, apricot, white fruit and barley followed by cigar ash, dry peat, earth and subtle notes of honey and butter. Masked but peaty finish with the sweet fruits and vanilla being held in check. Faintly herbal, gooseberry after-taste.

Water makes the nose softer and brings out the white fruit. There's still a good amount of peat, pepper and Cumberland sausage! The palate is like the nose, more white fruit, apricot and barley. Also, like the nose there is still plenty of peat. Long, herbal, mineral, green peppercorn and ash on the finish.
