2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.92 points

  1. Feis_ile did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A 22 year old Macallan bottling independent bottler Adelphi. This special single malt has aged 22 years on sherry barrel # 278058. Distilled in 1990 and bottled in 2013 at barrel strength of 56% in a limited edition of 193 bottles of which only 22 are available on the Dutch market.
    • Nose
      McCowans Highland toffee, popcorn and butter with aromas of coffee, bonbons, honeycomb and dried berries. Deliciously complex single malt reminiscent of the leather and tobacco of a Gentlemen's Club.
    • Taste
      very smooth texture in the mouth that is very warming with all the flavors of raisins, toffee and coffee.
    • Finish
      long with a hint of roasted orange marmalade.

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

    A very drinkable whisky with rich sherry influences but not overpowering.
    • Nose
      Leather and tobacco. Quite strong sherry influence but nicely balanced with ripe fruit and tinned apricots. Brown sugar, golden syrup. A little coal smoke. Complex.  
    • Taste
      Mostly toffee and raisins. More golden syrup. Nice sweetness but comparatively straightforward compared to the nose.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Over-ripe fruit. Toast.
