A 13-year-old sherry matured single cask from Dailuaine, bottled by Adelphi.
This was distilled in 2007 and exclusively matured in a refill oloroso sherry butt. It is bottled at 54.9% with 306 bottles in the release.
Nose: We first discover Seville orange peel and sunflower seed before diving into tobacco leaf, peppercorn, mesquite woodchip, brown sauce and Bloody Mary.
Palate: We take an unexpected turn toward tiramisu, pecan nuts, maple syrup and minty pan drops.
Finish: A medium, satisfying finish and a complex tour de force of a whisky.
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 and released its first single malt in 2020.
