Tasting Notes

Nose
Adelphi:  Vivid butterscotch to start, fading through mild cheese, possibly cheese cloth or an old dairy, then eucalyptus and sandalwood.  Very old fashioned.  Dampness in a traditional dunnage maturation warehouse (full of old sherry butts).  Hessian coal sacks.
Taste
Adelphi:  Very sweet to start, drying with more hessian and a mouth cooling eucalyptus.  Water emphasises cream cheese and old warehouses - an increasingly old fashioned style of whisky.  The hessian is now soaked in old whisky, more like bung cloth.
Finish
Adelphi:  Sweet to start, then distinctly savoury - the elusive Umami? A remarkable rare old whisky.
