Description

This Adelphi Clynelish was distilled in 1997 and bottled in 2015 from a refill ex-bourbon hogshead which produced 228 bottles.

Tasting Notes 

Nose
Adelphi: A little nose prickle to start, faintly mineralic, flinty and waxy, possibly waxy sweet cakes, frosted icing and ripe banana skins (again typical of the make). After a while, a fruity note appears, lychees or mangosteen, and Turkish Delight. Finally, the maritime notes appear with clam shells on a beach.
Taste
Adelphi:  Candle wax increases in the taste, both oily and sweet, with herbs, honey roast ham (quite meaty) and melting icing sugar, orange and cinnamon.  With water it becomes quite peppery.
Finish
 Adelphi: Smooth with a big texture, mouth-filling, teeth coating - eveyrthing you'd expect from Clynelish.
