Meet the Firkin 4

  • Firkin Rare = Smokey, Soft Peat

  • Firkin 49 = Silky Smooth, Soft and Nutty

  • Firkin Islay = Full on Peat with Mellow Sweetness

  • Firkin Ten = Rich and Creamy


Usually, peated malts from the Scottish islands tend to be quite challenging with oodles of peat and smoke. This peated single malt is unusual as it’s an Ardmore 2011 from the Highlands which has a less intense smoke & peat profile. 330 Bottles.

Ardmore Distillery is in Aberdeenshire (origin of The Black Angus steak) and inland from the seaport of Aberdeen in the North East of Scotland.

Partner this Ardmore dram with the soft sweetness of Sicilian Marsala in a hand-built custom cask. These use a combination of American first-fill Bourbon & new French Limousin oak staves with a custom char.

This Double Oak cask in combination with the “solto” sweetness of Marsala creates a special flavor profile. The result is a new character as befits the Italian influence from Sicily.

It’s quite simply Firkin Bellissimo… Sumptuous Peat… Single Cask Single Malt.
