Ardlair 9: Saint Emilion Barrique
Presenting *drumroll* The Havelock Series! A spin-off of private cask bottlings under the Glaschu brand. The first of the series is this 9 year old Ardlair, distilled at Ardmore Distillery.
Ardlair is Ardmore's un-peated spirit, a delightfully creamy Highland dram, that you don't come across very often.
This sultry single malt has spent it's life maturing in an ex-bourbon Hogshead before finishing in a first-fill Saint Emilion red wine barrique for 16 months. The red wine originated from La Cave Dourthe, a well-known vineyard in the heart of the Saint Emilion region of Bordeaux, France.
