Adelphi Ben Nevis 2015, Scotland, United Kingdom 70cl
5 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. No. of bottles: 622, cask number: 10711 from Scotland, United Kingdom. 61.3% ABV.
Matured in a first fill Oloroso sherry puncheon, this is mahogany in colour with a light bead. A deeply savoury nose swimming with aromas of new welly boots, Marmite, beef jus, star anise, soy and oyster sauces, Black Forest gâteaux and rich game. The palate continues with fig chutney, Soreen malt loaf, liquorice, green tea, beef jerky and kicap manis. An almost edible finish, not for the faint hearted. This is heady, chunky stuff!
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.
