  3. Amsterdam did not rate this whisky Specialist

    Total production of Adela was fewer than ten thousand bottles worldwide, all made in 2017 and 2018 - The way to tell the difference is 2017 bottles don't have the gold stripe on the label whereas 2018 bottles do.

    Ralfy review 813: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bilaZPtX3_I (83/100).

    "If you want a fancy gift for someone who's getting into whisky this is the one to go for. But for the seasoned maltster which is probably you I'd stick to the 12 year old. It's far more interesting."

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      82 82
      sulphur, blackberries, sacking
    • Taste
      78 78
      thinish - just a touch of sherry
    • Finish
      80 80
      medium (just)

  6. Achany scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, red fruit, dirty sherry, mouldy wine cellar, full of spices, hints of sulphur, not elegant, the ABV is nice, full bodied, finish is all right and sweet, candy, strange malt. I do like this one, the taste and this dirty malty note. Bought a bottle for further examination
    edit: 21.06. after some weeks in the opened bottle this one does get better.

    fair puddle
    did not leave a good impression with me
    the funny smell in the nose misses it right at the beginning
    • Nose
      a funny smell at the beginning, berries, light leather, sherry-herb gets more
      later herbs, slightly caramel, tart, red fruits / berries become intensiever
    • Taste
      light on the palate
      fresh sawn oak, slightly cherry
    • Finish
      short to medium long
      Cherries, herb

  9. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Copper Gold
    • Nose
      Rich Olorosso cherry notes, raisins, whiff of walnuts and toffee pudding with a hint of chocolate.
    • Taste
      Again rich, sweet and smooth, sherry flavours with some dark chocolate coffee and dried black fruit and a hint of liquorice and pepper.
    • Finish
      Quite rich, nutty, warming, soft and long.
