  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 159 bottles from cask no. 4511
    Dark, brooding gold in colour with a lovely “old rancio” nose to start. Ever-changing, like all good, old whiskies, first apricots with a hint of balsamic vinegar (all taken in an old library), then assorted glace fruits, greengages, over-ripe figs, now macerated fruits and a rich banana cake. Finally, a bowl of slightly burnt rice pudding. To taste, plenty of sherbet, cooked pears, sour plums, caramelized sugar and a hint of mint. On the finish, waxed apples, tobacco pouch and lingering sherbet. A very complex elderly whisky from this Top Class distillery.
