My first post in an awfully long time but I just had to share this…
50yo North British single grain from Adelphi.
A deep mahogany red, silky and velvety.
Old, old sherry oak on the nose. Surprisingly vibrant fruit.
Hugely flavourful, fudge, dark intense fruit, bursting with character. Oaky but remarkably subtle. Black pepper. Amazingly complex: fruit to cereal ti warm spices to ancient wood and all the way back.
Lingering finish, warming and very, very satisfying. £270 rrp and what a bargain.
