Ardnamurchan 'AD 04.21 Paul Launois Release' 57.6% 700ml

This special cask strength release of Ardnamurchan is one of the very first which is entirely unpeated. It consists of a batch of Ardnamurchan initially matured in nine first-fill ex-bourbon barrels, before a finishing period in bespoke ex-Paul Launois Champagne barriques. To say that Champagne casks are rarely seen would be an understatement, partly because very little is produced using these traditional barrels. As an unpeated expression, this comes across quite differently the standard release, it's more delicate and perhaps more refined. On the nose, the fresh brioche aroma is reminiscent of a fine Champagne, there is delicate jellied fruits and more pastry notes. The palate shares plenty with the nose, with strawberry tart, apple strudel, pink peppercorns and orange bitters.

 

ABV: 57.6%
