The new single malt Scotch whisky by Beam Global Spirits & Wine, Ardmore Traditional Cask, is described as "rich and peaty" and is for Scotch drinkers wanting to move from mainstream malts to those which are more complex. Ardmore is already one of the major malt whiskies in the Teacher's blend, but Traditional Cask is a double -matured single malt. First put in ex-bourbon barrels , its second maturation is in handmade quarter casks, similar to those used 200 years ago. The second stage is said to give a well-rounded flavour with a peat smoke richness and a delicate sweetness.
