Glenrothes 1969 42yo 42,6% sherry hogshead#2, 297 bottles, Adelphi

Oh, my!! The colour on this one alone! Deep mahogany. The nose hit you with dark fruits, dades, plums, raisins - incredible, just a tad of oak! ...and is that a hint of smoke I detect too?

Coating, Old cigarbox, more raisins, crunchy chocolate orange sticks, oily finish, incredibly coating - gets into every crevice of your mouth, amaretto and espresso!

What an absolute stunner by Adelphi. This cask comes from a private stock and hopefully Alex and his team can source other casks of similar quality from this guy!

This fantastic Glenrothes finishes off this 7 part review of whiskies from Adelphi...and what a ride it has been!

The single casks from this small indie bottler are of very high quality IMHO!
They also may be on the more expensive end of the scale, but in this case I feel the extra money is often worth it!
