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.
