Adelphi Ardmore 2002, Scotland, United Kingdom 70cl
18 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. No. of bottles: 228, cask number: 285 from Scotland, United Kingdom. 58.6% ABV.
Drawn from a refill bourbon hogshead, displaying a good bead and yellow gold in colour. The pungent, spicy nose is bursting with prunes, forest floor, peanut brittle, kippers, speck and soot. The palate expands on this with leather, pine needles, green peppercorns, brine, Old Spice and the smouldering remnants of last night’s barbecue. A lengthy, green finish brings this one home in style.
Scotland's most acclaimed bottler of rare single cask and limited edition single malt whisky, fusion whisky and spirits.
"We exist to identify the very small number of casks that have produced the ultimate whiskies and spirits. The criteria for selection include rarity and maturity, but above all flavour."
"Adelphi is like the Linn of hi-fi, the Aston Martin of motoring, the Gleneagles of hotels - basically, if you see anything with that name on a bottle, you know you're in for a serious treat." Andy Clark, The Herald, Scotland.
