Clydebuilt Shipwright is a unique limited-edition blend of malts combining four distinctive single malt whiskies from Highland and Speyside distilleries, wholly matured in first fill Oloroso sherry casks, bottled at 48% ABV.
Shipwright is the second in the Ardgowan Distillery Clydebuilt series and is a marvellous showcase for the skills of our master whisky maker, Max McFarlane. It is a truly sumptuous dram, made to ignite your imagination of far off lands.
On the nose, warm aromas come in waves, bringing to mind the precious cargoes of the East, with scents of marzipan, leather, Ceylon tea, dried spices, tobacco and sandalwood. This journey continues on the palate, as bright complexities of orange peel and rich dark notes of black cherries and treacle come to the fore. Shipwright then settles gently, dry at first, then gliding into lingering spicy notes with hints of an old leather armchair.
A wonderful elegant whisky to savour alone or share with friends.
