    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 192 bottles from Cask 13120
    This Adelphi example of the 'King O'Malts' has wonderful beading (bubbles when shaken) giving a clue that the cask has been a benign influence on the spirit. The nose confirms this as it is very mellow with rum, toffee and orangery notes initially. Given a little more oxidation, burnt sugar and freshly ground Kenyan coffee emerge. With water, the sweetness is accentuated as peach melba, banana toffee and later creme brulee bursts through. The taste is smooth, oily and chewy with a water melon aftertaste. An afternoon aperitif dram – perfect for watching the Olympics..
