25 years in a refill sherry cask gives this Bowmore lovely rich notes to match the excellent smoke. The early to mid 90’s Bowmores have built up a following with their fruitiness and complexity. It’s neighbour cask, which was a 23 year old Bowmore #553 sold quickly, and more than likely this one will sell pretty quickly too.
A beautiful colour of golden hay. On the nose we found lots of fruit. Stone fruits, fruit salad, white peach and honeysuckle. Along with this it has a beeswax influence. On the palate it delivers honeydew melon, satsuma oranges, green apple and spearmint. It has fantastic mouthfeel and the finish is long and mouth cooling.
Batch 6 of Adelphi’s annual blended malt consists of Highland Park, Bunnahabhain, Tamdhu and Glenrothes.

Bottled in 2018 non chill filtered and with no added colour. 1500 bottles world wide.
Notes From Adelphi… Nose: smoked meat with warm toast, butter and heather honey. Palate: dark cherries with white peaches and kiwi compote finished with some Nutella. Finish: rich and round. 46% Alc./Vol.
Amber gold in colour. Complex aromas of buttery caramel, rich vanilla, a hint of spice and wood. The taste is ultra-smooth with the sweetness from the caramel and toffee notes combining with the spiciness of rye and underlying wood befitting a liquid aged for 20 years. The finish is warm and lingering with hints of caramel, toffee and spice.
The first vintage from the 21st century in the AnCnoc range from Knockdhu distillery, this 2000 vintage has been bottled at 46% without colouring or chill-filtration.

Our limited edition is a testament to the 35-year-old’s popularity with whisky lovers worldwide and we’re confident that this unique release will entice drinkers to add it to their collections.”

In the Octave series, Duncan Taylor experiments with the influence of barrel size on maturation . At around 50 liters, Octave barrels are only a fraction of the size of the common barrel types.
