Glenrothes 2009 10 Year Old Speyside– Adelphi (65.5%) cask no. 5871

$164.99

Drawn from a refill Oloroso sherry butt, this whisky has the vibrant colour of sandlewood with little bead – the latter normally associated with high-strength filling such as this. On the nose is Walls chocolate ice-cream with vanilla sponge cake, milk chocolate digestives and fresh feijoas. The palate gave us salted caramel truffles, Black Forest Gateaux and a slightly meaty finish. The finish is long and leaves the tongue tingling.

Only 508 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.

Description

Adelphi exist to identify the very small number of casks that have produced the ultimate whiskies. The criteria for selection include rarity and maturity, but above all flavour. These whiskies are both rare and sought-after – these very special casks are so rare that, on average, Adelphi accepts a mere 4% that it is offered. Each single cask of whisky matures its contents very differently, imparting its own character to the whisky it holds and, as a result, there are never two Adelphi’s quite the same.

This single malt whisky was distilled in 2009 at the Glenrothes distillery before being placed in a refill Oloroso sherry butt and left to mature for 10 years. In 2020 it was bottled at 65.5% abv as part of the Adelphi Selection.

Only 508 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.
