- Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 577 bottles from cask 4229
From a “secret” distillery in Speyside, this whisky has taken much of its character from the cask, a first-fill ex-sherry butt. The colour is deep amber, and the nose seems to match, being at once profound and fresh/citric: plain chocolate oranges, wrapped in orange peel, then caramel creams and real vanilla pods, then sweet tobacco. Water does not raise the ghost of brimstone immediately, although there is a whiff in due course to combine with the overall scent of saddle-soap. The texture is rich, and the taste picked up all at the back of the tongue: there is little sweetnsss, no acidity, a interesting saltiness and an after-taste of coffee beans dipped in chocolate. A manly dram!
- There`s other (reliable) sources that claim this to be a Mortlach...
But who knows.
- Very good malt, especially for friends of moderate sherry influence.
Dark, sweet and over-ripe grapes mixed with a pleasant touch of dry wood. Dry forest soil in autumn. Foliage, but sometimes sandy soil.
My goodness, he has power! No Sherrytunte, but a reticent representative of his guild. But very powerful with full body. Suesser still as the nose.
Good in length and the flavors preserving or again ausholend.
- Undisclosed Glenfarclas.
