Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 217 bottles from cask no. 642
Our first bottling from this fabulous distillery since 1998. This arrived in a 1st fill bourbon barrel although the colour and certain flavours might suggest a different original cask. Deep amber. Unusually dark for American oak. Tinned peaches in syrup and white grapes with zesty orange peel. Behind this, hints of sphagnum moss. Almonds. Oily mouthfeel. Light sweetness with honeycomb in the finish. An aftertaste of maturation warehouse. Water introduces mint toffee (Murray Mints) on the nose and fruitiness is surpressed. Musty grape skins. Soft, creamy texture, light sweetness – not cloying and now a trace of spice at the back of the tongue with a lovely dusting of chocolate in a long finish.
