A fresh, floral single cask from the Glen Elgin distillery, bottled by Adelphi.
Drawn from an ex-Bourbon hogshead (previously fitted with new ends), this has the colour of deep gold with excellent beading. The nose is grassy initially with notes of almond and coconut muesli, honeysuckle, rosehip and a kiwi pavlova. On the palate there are “soorplooms”, marzipan, oatybiscuits and well-cooked banana. Finishes with salty custard slices.
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.
