The second release of Adelphi’s Indian and Scotch whisky Fusion, which was previously known as Kincardine.
A release of 825 bottles at 57.8%, this has been vatted from India’s Amrut and Scotland’s Ardmore and Glenrothes.
E&K pays homage to the 9th Earl of Elgin and 13th Earl of Kincardine Victor Bruce, a historic figure of Scotland.
A liberal politician who spent his life in the public service, Bruce served as Viceroy and Govener of India from 1894 to 1899 (he was known as ‘The Walking Viceroy’). During that period he oversaw improvements to India’s railway system, worked to combat drought and famine, helped stabilise the currency and managed fears over the country’s border with Afghanistan.
He was also the Great Grandfather of Adelphi’s Alex Bruce, the Managing Director and driving force behind Adelphi’s creations. Alex created the Kincardine with Scotch whisky icon and regular co-conspirator Charles Maclean.
One of the best Fusions yet, in The Oak Barrel team’s opinion, this is a rich, bold whisky with a beautifully, oily texture.
