    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 286 bottles from cask no. 960070

    A lovely Amontillado Sherry colour, indicating ex-sherry cask maturation. This is, in fact, a Spanish oak ex-sherry hogshead. The beading is also excellent, so we can expect good texture.Incredibly perfumed (clean), with smoked oysters, mineral oils and machine oil all in the background. Sandal wood develops as does the perfume – now floral like a sweet blossom. Then pipe tobacco and smoked cheese rind appear. Sweet, salty and smoky to taste, with burnt bacon and charred sausages to the fore. Also a little salty liquorice developing. With water: footbaths and maritime notes – dried seaweed and lobster pots (with no catch), tobacco again and dried herbs. A big mouthfeel with herbal “pick-me-up”, an empty herb drawer (slightly dusty), and mussels on a rope. The finish is all about treacle toffee, more dusty drawers and lingering cloves.

  2. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet peat. Smoked cheese. Wood polish. Lightly perfumed. Manuka honey.
    • Taste
      Oily and mouth coating. Lots of salt, crispy bacon, and peat. Burnt toffee. Some ripe fruit and orange peel. Dried herbs - a bit dusty.
    • Finish
      Ashy and salty. Lingering sweetness.
