    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 180 bottles from cask no. 10516Archibald Walker added Limerick Distillery in Ireland to his portfolio, which also included Loch Katrine Adelphi Distillery in Glasgow. As an homage to this, and the fact the current Adelphi has reached its 20 year milestone of independent bottling, we have been fortunate enough to extract a wonderful, and very rare cask from an unnamed distillery in Ireland. Matured in an American oak ex-Bourbon barrel, this is a rich copper colour with orange lights and a good bead. The orange colour continues into the taste, with an immediate nose of Seville oranges, orange zest, tangerines and tangerine oil, becoming Gran Marnier. Then, Rowantree blackcurrant Fruit Pastels, bung cloth and rancio. Very sweet to start with toffee and fudge, mango, papaya and guava – a peppery tropical fruit salad. Bitter almonds, macadamia nuts, blackcurrant juice and spice in the medium length finish.

    I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a whisky as fruity as this one. Incroyable. Mostly tropical fruit, some citrus as well. The taste is more of the some. Fruit, fruit, and even more fruit with some vanilla and herbs. What a wonderful surprise. The one thing I wonder: might this Limerick get a bit boring when working your way through an entire bottle? But for now, who cares. Can I have some more please?
