Adelphi The Whisky That Cannot Be Named 50 Year Old
"In 25 years of considering whiskies carefully and writing tasting notes, this sample ranks among the top two or three I have tasted. It is fantastically complex, big, deep and rich. It lacks any mustiness or undue woodiness the only indication being the scented wood aromas and the high, dry tannins in the flavour. It has clearly come from a refill European oak cask. I was reluctant to put more than a dash of water in it, but this enhanced and developed the aroma, and made it less hot on the palate"
A superb example of how the very best of Speysides tasted in days gone by.
Winner of the Malt Maniacs' Speyside Award of Excellence 2004.
