This Adelphi Royal Brackla 1997 16 Years Old was drawn from a refill American oak, ex- bourbon cask. This is one of only 268 bottles.
Not seen often as an independent bottling, this make is well-worth seeking out.
|Adelphi: A fresh, lightly floral and green-leaf nose, becoming white grapes, then lychees in syrup. An unusual and inviting aroma.|
|Adelphi: The mouthfeel is bigger than the nose implies; sweet then dry, with some acidity between. With a drop of water the aroma gains a hint of ginger, but remains light and fresh, as does the taste: mildly sweet, lightly acidic, not so dry as at full strength.|
