The second release of AdelphiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 IndiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Amrut and ScotlandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 Ã¢â‚¬ËœThe Walking ViceroyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢). During that period he oversaw improvements to IndiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s railway system, worked to combat drought and famine, helped stabilise the currency and managed fears over the countryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s border with Afghanistan.
He was also the Great Grandfather of AdelphiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Alex Bruce, the Managing Director and driving force behind AdelphiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s opinion, this is a rich, bold whisky with a beautifully, oily texture.
