Batch 3 of Adelphi's Glenborrodale blended malt series.
Once again this is quite a unique blended all-malt whisky, this was matured in a sherry cask with a strong splash of 8-year-old first-fill sherry from Glenrothes - Adelphi's stash of those powerful Glenrothes casks is legendary. The rest of the singles malts in this vatting were approximately 14 years old.
Limited to 1,014 bottles worldwide, this is not as immediately sweet as batch one but carries the same hallmarks.
The rich, chocolate-y sherry comes through with early rum-and-raisin sweetness, but thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also citrus (orange peel) and a lingering smoke wisp (which may be coming from a touch of Bunnahabhain).
As weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve come to expect from Adelphi releases, this blend is much more than just the some of its parts.
