Adelphi The Glover 18 Year Old Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$310. 00 Bottle
Another hybrid malt in the Adelphi portfolio is "The Glover", named after the 'Scottish Samurai' Thomas Blake Glover. This is the third release. Whiskies from Scotland (Longmorn and Glen Garioch) make up 35% of the blend. The remainder is sourced from refill ex-sherry hogsheads from Japan's now closed Hanyu distillery. All whiskies are at least 18 years of age. The consensus on the blogosphere is that this really is something genuinely different. 1448 bottles on offer, but we have less than a handful to sell. Notes from Adelphi... Ripe corn – sunshine. Good beading. Light nose prickle. Richly fruity – ripe pear, juicy red apples, cherries, orange juice – on a base of vanilla sponge, spread with strawberry jam and whipped cream. A drop of water introduces fondant. A sweet overall taste, with chocolate and coconut (Bounty Bar). Water introduces ripe pineapple and Szechuan pepper (both spicy and mouth-cooling). Parma violets in the development. Multi-faceted and exotic. 48.6% Alc./Vol.
