Adelphi Breath Of Speyside 2006 (58.2% abv)

1 of only 568 bottles from Refill Sherry Cask drawn from an active, 1st fill Spanish oak ex-Sherry Butt. A deep mahogany colour, with mellow nose feel, not as dry as its predecessor. Bruised apple, tinned pear, and burnt caramel – toffee apple? Oloroso sherry, sweet tobacco, so leather. Develops into vanilla toffee (Werthers Originals; Chocolate Eclairs) with a drop of water. A sweet, burnt toffee taste, then immediately bitter saccharine. Water introduces chocolate and cocoa powder, reduces the other tastes and gives a light menthol aftertaste.

Laudale 12 Year Old Batch 3 Speyside – Adelphi (46% abv)


The third batch of Adelphi’s super sherried Laudale series. This time the distillery featured is Dailuaine, a robust Speysider primarily reserved for blends, and has been aged for 12 years in first fill sherry casks. Dailuaine derives from the Scottish Gaelic ‘An dail uaine’ meaning ‘green valley’. This distilleries whiskies are rarely seen and sought after when they are available with only the best casks makeing it out to be independently bottled. These whiskies are both rare and sought-after special casks are so rare that, on average, Adelphi accepts a mere 4% that it is offered.
