    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 80 bottles from cask no. 1623From one of our favourite distilleries, imagine our disappointment when only 80 bottles were forthcoming from this 25 year old cask.Rich gold in colour with good beading, promising good mouth texture, this has a lovely fresh fruit salad nose full of ripe strawberries. As with most older whiskies, there is a distinct rancio note (old warehouses), and an ever-developing complexity as the whisky breathes properly for the first time in ¼ of a century: raisins, ripe Gala melon, an Autumn forest (with the sun shining), a super-tempting, glazed fruit topped, French patisserie, then custard creams, apricots and vanilla pods.A delicate whisky to taste with some light coconut and an tell-tale thread of coal smoke (from previous malting techniques), drying on the finish. One to savour long into the night.
