Here are the latest releases from Adelphi - most where previewed at The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival in May. This is the first bottlings from Adelphi which have been processed through there own bottling line at their new warehouse - getting even more independent. This should mean that they can be more fleet of foot going forward so except more releases and more frequent.
This whisky is from a refill bourbon Hogshead which produced 267 bottles. It's about getting scrubbed clean down the road from the industrial factory.
This whisky is from a refill bourbon hogshead which produced 179 bottles. Lots of baked apples and apple pie notes show the quality of this aged Speyside.
This whisky is from a first fill sherry cask which produced 632 bottles. A big sherried whisky with lots of dark chocolate and toffees with a hint of match boxes.
This whisky is a refill bourbon hogshead which produced 247 bottles. It's all about a biscuit tin in a sweet shop with the door open to a summer day in the Highlands.
This whisky is from a refill sherry butt which produced 527 bottles. This one is all about chocolate and fruit cake.
This whisky is from a refill bourbon hogshead which produced just 113 bottles. It's like an English country village of the 1950's probably in the Cotswolds - the country church, the sweet shop, the green grocers, coal fires and the village school.
