    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 560 bottles from cask 61416
    A stately example of ‘The King o’Malts’! Bottled from a first-fill ex-Oloroso butt, the colour is deep umber with crimson lights, like polished rosewood. Surprisingly light beading, given its ABV. Some nose prickle, with a distinct ginger edge – ginger snaps and syrup sponge – edging towards Scotch trifle (sherry-soaked sponge, tinned peaches, custard, cream). Rich and rounded, and not at all dominated by the wod. Water introduces an unexpected hint of celeriac or fennel, with chopped walnuts and the slightest hint of struck matches. A smooth mouthfeel, the taste starting sweet then drying; mouth-drying overall, with nuts in the aftertaste.

  4. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not the best Adelphi botteling I came across.
    • Nose
      Sweet barley. Nice oaky and sherry notes. Further on dried fruits and citrus. Some sulphur as well.
    • Taste
      Very rich and round as we are used with Adelphi bottelings. Oily and creamy. Oranges and tangerines. But slightly too much sulphur in the end again.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Tannins and chopped walnuts.

    Glenlivet 1994 14yo 61% Adelphi

    n: other times it was full of smell, tonight after giving the whisky some time it is smelling 'dry' and that's about it. after water and some more time: hints of tobacco. more water again, finally things start happening: apple jam, malts, grass, vanill, honey, the dyry smell keeps returning, it smells like shells on the beach, reminds me of Bowmore Enigma.

    t: sweet and citrus with hints of coffee

    f: some more of the taste remaining.

    c: not so good this one. I remember this one being better a few weeks ago when I opened the sample, so maybe the sample went bad.
