Adelphi Liddesdale Batch 10

21 Years Old

110 bottles Distilled at Bunnahabhain

46% ABV - 700ml

LIDDESDALE is a large hill, just a few miles from the location for Adelphi's new distillery - The Ardnamurchan Distillery.

Rising gently from the southern shore of Loch Sunart, Liddesdale Brae is steeped in folklore. Some speak of the "Devil's Acre" where the old widow "sell'd her coo to the De'il" (selled her cow to the devil); nothing grows there. Others whisper of the "Fairie Knoll" (a place where fairies live), protected for all time by the "Deaf Shepherd" (a large piece of rock that looks like a shephard's head) looking down from the skyline

Tasting note: Brilliant gold. Ideal clarity. Opening whiffs of beeswax, rice crackers and semi-ripe pear. Five minutes adds sultry aromas of cream tea biscuits, sponge cake and a thread of sooty peat.

Gently buzzes with spicy warmth in the mouth; pillow soft peat meshes with stewed pear and delicate peppermint freshness.

More sweet oak, clove and pear in the aftertaste. Consistently desirable. Always a strong performer in the collection
