This Adelphi Longmorn 1985 28 Years Old was distilled in 1985 and bottled in 2014 drawn from a refill American oak, ex-bourbon cask. It is one of only 247 bottles.
|Adelphi: Initial slight nose prickle, in spite of its low ABV. A dense and fruity (mellow) nose; scented oil - slightly mineralic and Chablis-like - light toffee and raspberry boiled sweets, becoming more like a sweety shop as it opens; a dry note at the back.|
|Adelphi: Rich, oily and mouth-drying after a sweet start, at full strength with fruits of the forest, even slightly tropical. It does drink very well at natural strength, but a little water opens it up a bit and introduces more pronounced fruity and dusty notes - both sweet and dry, with hints of white chocolate.|
|Adelphi: This combination comes across elegantly in the taste, with a medium length savoury finish.|
