    Tasting Notes and Comments by Adelphi;

    1 of only 1523 bottlesLIDDESDALE is a large hill, just a few miles from the location for Adelphi’s new distillery – The Ardnamurchan Distillery – which should be built by the end of 2013.Rising gently from the southern shore of Loch Sunart, Liddesdale Brae is steeped in folklore. Some speak of the “Devil’s Acre” where the old widow “sell’d her coo to the De’il” (selled her cow to the devil); nothing grows there. Others whisper of the “Fairie Knoll” (a place where fairies live), protected for all time by the “Deaf Shepherd” (a large piece of rock that looks like a shephard’s head) looking down from the skyline.Liddesdale Batch no. 4 has been carefully put together from 4 European casks (ex-sherry) from Bunnahabhain Distillery.Tasting note: Granny’s kitchen cupboard: citrus fruit peel, cake mix and angelica root with jars of dried fruits, bags of Demerara sugar and bitter-dark chocolate.

  3. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    N: Warm tones of red fruit, delicious spicy (nutmeg), nice wood tones and slightly smokiness.

    T: Fresh with a nice sweetness (combi of fruit and spiciness).

    F: Middel long, spicy with a subtle bitterness.

    Bunnahabhain

  5. SilentStill scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    If you do not always like the great variety of aromas and enjoy a smooth and especially on the palate round Malt, is in this northernmost of all Islay Malts in good hands.
    • Nose
      Slightly dry sand or marble cake, rotten wood, dry forest soil, slightly fleshy looking. Overall quite decent therefore coming.
    • Taste
      Nice, supple consistency, almost creamy. Bitter-sweet in the taste, but hardly recognizable aromas, similar to the nose.
    • Finish
      Rather soft and with a pleasant bitterness.
