Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

1 of only 130 bottles from cask 1753

This is the best example of the distillery’s make that we have ever encountered. It comes from a first fill American barrel, so has only produced 130 bottles. The colour is deep amber, with chestnut lights. The nose is celestial: stewed plums and baked apples stuffed with bramble jelly, then a light coconut, sanded hardwood in the sun, with fresh varnish. Wonderfully complex! A drop of water reduces the fruity scents, but brings up sandalwood and candlewax –mellow aromas revealing the whisky’s age. The flavour at natural strength is sweet to start, drying out with plenty of oak lactones (i.e. coconut), and this is replicated at reduced strength (don’t add too much water), although less sweet: dry tannins, with lingering coconut in the long finish.
