  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 299 bottles from cask no. 1477A very bright mid-amber with golden notes and excellent beading.The initial nose is all about brown sugar and treacle, possibly even molasses. This richens to dark tablet and burnt sugar with a delicate thread of smoke in the background. Even richer on the palate with plenty of smoke now: hessian sacks, singed sheep’s wool (Hebridean) and a waxy smoked cheese coating. Water introduces some brine notes – memories of standing on a wind swept beach on the north coast.A lovely mouthfeel – all sweetness and smoke, drying to a long finish.

  2. alectron scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Funny one indeed, I would`ve bet this is a single cask Longrow...

    Transferring previous Note (2012.01.02) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      coal smoke, gunpowder & flints (quite Longrow-y in that aspect),
      shoe polish & leather, slight sherry/raisin/wine mix in the back,
      charred wood, licorice, vanilla, rotten apples, rancid butter. (82)
    • Taste
      syrupy/oily mouth-feel, leather, apricots, more Longrow-gunpowder, chocolate & salt. (85)
    • Finish
      metallic/copper, rubber, bitter, licorice & chocolate, goat
      hide/fur, also some horse manure, mineral-y sour at the end. (78)
      Much later: the sour-ness, although still present, seems to develop some fruity notes if you give it enough time (84)

  3. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "A 1995 Highland Park bottled by Adelphi without chill-filtration at its

    full natural strength. Described as sweet and rich on the nose with

    plenty of smoke on the palate."
