    Too much butterscotch and sulphur for me - not even plenty of water helps
    • Nose
      Strong coffee, toffee, burned sugar, butterscotch, vanilla, hints of sweaty socks
    • Taste
      Oily, sweet, dried fruits, raisins, toffee, vanilla, butterscotch again and unfortunately, sweaty sneakers
    • Finish
      Long and burning

    I think the nose is really great, but after that you taste that this is a youthful whisky. Better sherried whiskys are available. I have to say that in terms of profile it most closely resembles the Aberlour A'bunadh.

    I've got bottles of casks 3520, 3525 and 3526. This one is not only the lightest one in colour, but also the nose and the taste is lighter and fruitier than the other two despite its higher ABV. On the other hand, it's also the creamiest / fudgiest one, which is in favour of this one.

    Although this is the strongest whisky in my collection (with the other two 2007 Adelphis being 2 and 3), I feel no need to add any water as it's so smooth already. Remarkable! 
    • Nose
      Caramel fudge, raspberry sauce, mocha and mint.
    • Taste
      Creamy caramel fudge, raspberry, raisin and mint. Creamy even without water, which is very surprising at this ABV. When adding water it gets more peppery.
    • Finish
      Raspberry, dark chocolate, mocha, toffee, prune, pepper and mint. Slightly cognac-y.

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 327 bottles from cask no. 3520For such a comparative youngster, in fact one of the youngest we have ever bottled, this unusual, Amontillado-coloured Speyside shows remarkable style and character. Interestingly, the beading is virtually non-existent despite the high strength. Given this high strength, there’s a surprising lack of nose prickle before the sweet shop opens – Werther’s Originals, McCowans Highland Toffee, a greased baking tray of toffees, chocolate éclairs and a suggestion of crème brulée with clotted cream on top. There is also fresh butter, apple sauce (for the pork roast) and ginger bread, developing into something with more of an after-dinner character:  slightly bitter chocolate, Camp coffee and warm space hoppers. Very warming, with an after taste of double cream and a big kick of sherry.
