Ardmore Traditional Cask 1998

Price: $50.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: John Hansell

A single cask of Ardmore aged in a first-fill bourbon cask and then finished in quarter casks. This one is more mature, with more depth than the standard Ardmore Traditional Cask (which I rated 80 a few years back). Notes of toffee, vanilla bean, chocolate fudge, licorice stick, bourbon, tar, charcoal, and a hint of burnt raisin. Very nice! (A Julio's Liquors Exclusive.)
