A harvest gold with little-to-no beading – to be expected in one so young. At Adelphi, we always try to seek out and bottle the casks that offer exceptional flavours, no matter how young or old, and this is no exception. Hessian potato sacks, Physalis, steam trains, licorice, aniseed, dentist’s mouthwash, fennel and a delicate thread of smoke on the nose. A lovely, creamy texture really surprises with more Hessian, and a delightful sweetness. The addition of water brings coal smoke, chewing gum, and Primula smoked ham in a tube. This converts well into the taste with more smoked ham and a buttery, full flavour and texture and a slight medicinal mintiness in the finish. A truly unique and interesting whisky.
