Adelphi Speyside 11 Year Old Bottled for The Flight Club Australia Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
The single cask that almost never happened. Intended to hit the shelves at $200, now reduced to clear.
Not only one of the best priced Adelphis in recent years, but quite possibly one of the best values you will ever purchase from this bottler: A natural strength refill Oloroso cask for a club that never got off the ground, that sat in a warehouse for over two years, from a bottler near the top of the game, now selling for a song. This is no exception from Adelphi's usual standard, opening with aromas of honey drizzled barley, toasted cereals and ginger snaps; there's a twang of sulphur and just when you start thinking it could be better, the honeyed delivery thickens up and becomes the signature flourish on the palate; Rich malt and ginger biscuits follow. Water fluffs up the profile nicely while retaining all of the key-note flavours. No recent Adelphi release comes near the price/quality ratio on offer here - especially considering the provenance (the secret source is a Speysider that rhymes with 'Bothes'). 174 bottles only, specially labelled for Flight Club Australia. You'll kick yourself if you miss it. 56.8% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
