First Impression: Adelphi’s Breath of Speyside 10 Years Old

[58.4%・ 10 Years Old・Distilled in 2006・Bottled in 2017・Adelphi Bottling・Limited Release of  541 Bottles]

Nose:

Rich and indulging with milk chocolate, caramel fudge, banana skins and grilled pineapples, some dried dates surface in time.

Palate & Finish:

Quite a heavy sweetness with the toffee and honey, the tone is a bit weighted down.  Rum and raisins with an injection of hot spices onto the mid-palate.

Nibs of milk chocolate that grow a tad bitter with traces of dried muscat grapes lingering.

Thoughts:

The Sherry influence is very Adelphi-esque, quite prominent for this young Speysider.
