Adelphi Mortlach 1986, Scotland, United Kingdom 70cl
34 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. No. of bottles: 224, cask number: 2035 from Scotland, United Kingdom. 52.4% ABV.
Released from a long slumber in a single refill bourbon hogshead, burnished copper in colour and showing an exceptional bead. Packed with aromas of baked bananas, marzipan, mead, fruit salad sweeties, peach, apricot and linseed oil. The palate opens rich with honeycomb, walnut praline, hokey pokey ice cream and sea salt before revealing a savoury, herbaceous, and extremely lengthy finish. A fine dram indeed.
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.
