The Ardnamurchan Distillery is the most Westerly distillery on the mainland of Scotland, sitting on a remote fifty square mile penisula with a single track road being the only access. The distillery itself was opened in July 2014 and is owned by Adelphi Distillers, a business dating back to 1826 and were originally an independent bottling company looking to expand in whisky making themselves. Jamie Walker founded Adelphi in 1993 – his grandfather Archibald was previously an owner of the Loch Katrine Adelphi Distillery on the banks of the River Clyde. The business was eventually purchased by Keith Falconer and Donald Houston in 2003 and it was in 2007 that the first steps were taken to open a brand new distillery, as demand for Scotch whisky began to indicate it would be harder to source casks independently
Ardnamurchan produces both peated and unpeated spirit, using natural colour and no chill-filtration.
AD/02.22 is a new Cask Strength release from the distillery bottled at 58.7% with only 12,886 bottles available worldwide. It's a smokier release than previous, with 84% peated spirit to 16% unpeated, and 90% of the maturation is from ex-Bourbon casks with 10% Sherry.
There's a sweet saltiness present initially, very salted toffee in feel. The smokiness is slightly medicinal but not overpowering, with notes of stem ginger, menthol and fresh smoked salmon. It's got a beautiful coastal feel to it, with a freshness that is a delight. It's a very different beast to previous Ardnamurchan releases, but shows just how versatile they can be.
