I recommend you purchase the ARDMORE. ARDMORE
is not a brand that comes to most people's minds in conversation as it is not found in most shops globally. ARDMORE
is a peaty dram for a Highlander ( ARDMORE
is peated at 10-15 PPM Phenols
) and is the major contributor to the TEACHER'S
blends. If the one you found is the one Mr. Hughes ( Soundmangt4 ) posted, it is a sure bet. It is a distillery bottling ( OB ) and was partially aged in quarter casks. I have had it and still have an open bottle. I find it to be a nice pleasant, malty dram. If you will allow me, please don't get hung up on the lack of an age statement
on a bottle of scotch. Too much emphasis is placed on age statements for marketing. There are just as many good no age statement drams
as there are age statement
scotches on the market. Gordon & MacPhail independent bottlers has been bottling ARDMORE
for years. It is a respectable dram.
