    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 265 bottles from cask no. 1637

    This time you’ve seven distilleries to choose from, but we are sworn to secrecy… Deep gold in colour, it has spent its life in a first-fill hogshead. The nose is mellow and rounded and redolent of butterscotch, with sage and thyme immediately behind, and glazed smoked ham behind this again. Deep and complex for an Islay – which may give it away! The taste, unreduced, is sweet and gentle, then charcoal sticks. Water freshens it and loosens it up, introducing Plasticine and beaches. Now the texture is mouthfilling, and the taste sweet, salty and acidic, with charcoal as you swallow. A splendid example of this secret make!
