    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 238 bottles from cask no. 5
    The stalwart of Diageo’s grain distilleries situated next to Leven in Fife, this is not commonly available as a single cask, especially at a ripe old age of 30! Further detective work has, we believe, determined that this began its maturation in a sherry butt, and was re-racked into a bourbon barrel (probably due to excess leakage) in 2001. The resulting whisky has drawn on the best attributes of both its maturation vessels. A truly magnificent nose of maple syrup, sour plums, Black Forrest Gâteau, and even some pickled gherkins with horse-raddish. Another wee sniff brings Baileys, cedarwood, macaroons, almost a Bourbon or Irish whisky. Finally, some caramel popcorn and Rice Crispy bars. With water, the nose becomes more aromatic – scented candles, even floral (Jasmine).To taste, rich, melted Crunchie bars, plenty of chocolate, then coconut, cedar wood, now chocolate Grappa, Banoffee Pie, and a huge, lingering sweetness – so rare in a single grain. The ideal dessert whisky.
