A 2000 vintage 18-year-old Aultmore single malt from Adelphi.
Distilled 2000, this was drwn from two casks and bottled at 55% in 2018 – 480 bottles in the run.
Aultmore found fame as a key component of the Dewars blend and it is usually on the sweeter, fresher end of the flavour scale. However, this particular expression – matured in an ex-bourbon cask – has more rich intensity given the age.
A favourite of indie bottlers and sought out by connoisseurs.
Adelphi is one of the world's top independent bottlers of whisky. They acquire casks already matured to bottle, as opposed to maturing them themselves, and the Adelphi brand has been synonymous with top quality whisky for in the post-2000 era. The company also owns the Ardnamurchan distillery on Scotland's east coast, which distilled its first spirit in 2014.
