Adelphi Glen Ord 18 Year Old 2002, Scotland, United Kingdom 70cl
18 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. No. of bottles: 112 from Scotland, United Kingdom. 52.5% ABV.
Drawn from a refill American Oak ex-Bourbon Barrel, this displays a delicate straw colour and a very good bead. On the nose we have juicy honeydew melon, freshly cut grapes, lemon verbena, cooling Fox’s Glacier mints, macaroon bars and a final flourish of germolene. In the mouth we have a mellow combination of tangy Refreshers, bay leaf, burnt hay and damp hessian, enveloped with lingering embers.
Producer Profile Adelphi
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
