  1. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      86 86
      somewhat reserved, hint of dry sherry, spring onions, trace of rice paste, now also sweet with notes of sherry, yes, now pleasant, hint of vitamin C.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Surprisingly soft and mild with a slight smoky note, sweet, a little oak, later a hint of spicy and alcoholic.
      + H2O:
      slightly light, fruity and acidic, some oak
    • Finish
      86 86
      Sweet and slightly fruity, hint of barrel, some oak and smoke. Soft and pleasant, sweet-tart.

      Not bad, but it takes time and some water.

    Excellent young drop of Adelphi with fantastic nose. Could this be a Highland Park? No matter, refill!
    • Nose
      92 92
      First glowing sherry, then leather and dark fruits, light smoke, a little hay, with water even more complex and dry, sometimes a little ham, sometimes a bit warm sandy beach, but never intrusive - great nose
    • Taste
      90 90
      Powerful, malt, salt, less fruity than in the nose, bright sherry notes, white pepper
    • Finish
      90 90
      Persistent dryness, again salt, fresh wood, subtle fruitiness
