    Richard Woodard tells us:

    Delilah’s XXV, bottled to commemorate the bar’s anniversary in August, is the second collaboration between bar owner Mike Miller and Compass Box’s John Glaser.

    The first, released in 2013 to mark the bar’s 20th anniversary, was a blend of malt whisky from Teaninich and Glen Elgin, plus grain from Cameronbridge, and was matured in a mix of experimental new American oak barrels.

    It is said to have had a ‘pronounced sweetness’, and its remainder forms the base (29%) of the new blend after spending a further five years in cask.

    This is supplemented by malt whisky from Miltonduff, Teaninich, Linkwood and ‘malt whisky made near the town of Aberlour’, plus grain whisky from Cameronbridge distillery.

    The result is described as ‘a characterful whisky with notes of vanilla and spice, and rich Sherry wine character reminiscent of dried fruits and baking spices’.

    At 46% abv, 8,520 bottles are available worldwide, in Europe from May and in the US from June, priced at £100/US$100 per bottle.

    • Nose
      Just out the bottle I get a light medicinal smell that fades away after a few minutes in the glass. Very fat tears are coming down slowly in the glass. Apple freshness, light sherry tones and honey - vanilla sweetness.
    • Taste
      Spicy entry in an acceptable sherry and vanilla sweetness. Very light creaminess and not the oil I expected. A little later more pepper again and more effect of the sherry influence but still on the soft side without getting a sherry bomb. I'm not using the terms smooth,delicate or elegant here but it's just very drinkable.
    • Finish
      Medium soft sherry wine finish with spices.

  10. Falnor scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I liked that this blend revealed itself in multiple steps. The spicy side, bourbon middle and the soft chocolate all contribute to a nice evolution.
    • Nose
      On the nose the first act is for the spices. A combination of cloves, nutmeg, cardamom and ginger with hay and green garden herbs. I found it a bit unpolished, but then the second part was all about cream. Vanilla sauce with baked apple.
    • Taste
      The spices were mostly the same like the nose. Here the bourbon side was more evident. Spongecake, cookies and baked fruits. The third part was for the sherry. Very soft and lingering chocolate, mocha, puding and hazelutcream.
      I Love the fact that this edition is not like the 2013 version at 40,0%. The 46% is needed to lift the whisky.
    • Finish
      Delicate stuff. A velvet layer of vanilla cream, melted chocolate and fudge.
