Adelphi (distilled at Longmorn) 1985, 49.2%

Price: $320 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Plenty of the distillery's fresh fruits, here with some Demerara sugar sprinkled on the top, a little hint of almond, peppermint, candied apple, and hard fruit sweets. The palate continues in the same vein, with some more apple (baked this time) and a chalky texture. Water allows it to become more creamy (think orange barley water), while a green fresh note emerges in the background. Just slightly bitter behind.
