Adelphi (distilled at Glen Moray) 22 year old, 55%

Price: $240 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Gold in color and sweet on the nose, with a little nudge of mash, stewed apples, and cobnuts. As it develops, the impression is of a polite garden tea at the minister's: vanilla sponge, scones with cream and strawberry jam, with a background of lightly-turned earth. The palate continues equally sweetly and is lightly hot when neat. A glimpse of summer pleasures in wintertime.
