This Adelphi Benrinnes was distilled in 1997 and bottled in 2015 from an American oak ex-bourbon barrel which produced 195 bottles.
|Adelphi: An intriguing and quite interesting nose: Pata Negra ham with fresh figs and a sprig of rosemary becoming gradually more fragrant, possibly tarragon.|
|Adelphi: To taste, it is quite thick and oily, a hallmark of Benrinnes, with roast chicken skin and some very vivid fruity notes, in particular new berry fruits. A hint of white pepper emerges with a drop of water and this is apparent in the taste which is sweet overall. Good acidity and unusually salty for this make.|
|Adelphi: The unctuous mouthfeel helps the fruity/oily combination continue into a long and satisfying finish.|
