Our whisky friend Stefaan, from Whisky with Friends surprised us with a sample of this Ardmore, which he had received from Whisky Warehouse, the Belgian importer for Gordon & MacPhail. This particular cask, #5555, was bottled especially for the importer and this particular bottle was shared with other whisky bloggers and enthusiasts to sample and review. I am quite possible last of the Mohicans, and am not even sure the bottle is still available, but, you know, stuff came up and such.
