ARDMORE 22 ans 2000 Edition No.69 Whisky Sponge D.D.


A single Sherry cask from Ardmore. Originally, this whisky was matured in a Hogshead before being transferred to a first-fill Sherry cask for the final two and a half years of maturation. Bottled at cask strength. Beautiful length with notes of peat smoke, tar, pepper, and chocolate. Decadent Drinks is an independent bottler of whisky and other spirits. Angus MacRaild – also the author of the WhiskySponge blog – is the founder. His philosophy is quality, pleasure, and not taking life too seriously. This offbeat approach is reflected both in his blog and on the labels of his bottlings, with the sponge character depicted in various ways. These bottlings, mostly single casks, are divided into different brands such as Spongeverse, Equinox & Solstice, and Equilibrium. The Spongeverse includes WhiskySponge, RumSponge, CognacSponge, ArmagnacSponge, and WineSponge.

Tasting Notes

: Superbly rich, earthy, and chocolatey with delicate hints of game smoke in the background. Notes of licorice and cough medicine. An excellent mix of farmyard, earthy, smoky, and sherry notes.

Palate : The promise of the nose is followed very convincingly. Flavors of chocolate, leather, earth, wood spices, but also wax, camphor, mastic, and smoked dark fruits. A nice sherry influence but still very clearly in Ardmore’s style.

Finish : Long and heading towards tar resins, wood oils, leather, and sooty waxes.
