Ardmore 12 Years Port Wood Finish

Ardmore not only burns light smoky Malt, but also unpeated Malt, which is called Ardlear. But the bottling Ardmore Port Wood Finish is 100% peated, therefore created with light smoky Malt with 12 ppm.
Usually, the distillery follows with a post-maturing in Quarter Casks. But the 12 year old matured in Bourbon and port wine casks, to grant the whisky a fruity aroma.
