We exist to identify the very small number of casks that have produced the ultimate whiskies. The criteria for selection include rarity and maturity, but above all flavour. Adelphi whiskies are both rare and sought after.

Each single cask of whisky matures its contents very differently, imparting its own character to the whisky it holds and, as a result, there are never two Adelphis quite the same.

Caol Ila

CAOL ILA 2009
12 Years Old Speyside
55.9% abv
275 bottles

The product of a single refill Bourbon Hogshead, with the color of barley water and a moderate bead. This is a clean, citrus-forward Caol Ila. The nose is laden with lemon peel, swimming pool
aromas, hospital wards and enticing cigar smoke. A hint of smoked cheese perhaps. The palate displays great clarity with minerality, oyster shells, salinity, creosote, chimney soot and bonfire embers combining very effectively. A medium, satisfying finish.

TEANINICH 2010
12 Years Old Highland
59.1% abv
288 bottles

Fully matured in a first-fill Oloroso Hogshead, this is mahogany in colour and has a medium bead. On the nose, we discover Dr. Pepper, Indonesian cubeb, mushrooms, honey roast parsnips, rowan jelly and oregano. The palate continues the tanginess with confectionary-sweets, waxy old books, cumin and cured meats. The rich finish herbaceous and lengthy.

BenRiach

BENRIACH 2012
10 Years Old Speyside
59.9% abv
318 bottles

Drawn from a first-fill Oloroso Sherry Hogshead, showing moderate beading and the colour of cola. The nose is brimming with golden syrup, chocolate ice cream, Moroccan Tagine spices, stewed apricot, sage and peppermint tea. A rooftop meal in the medina. On the palate there is distinct sea salt, a whiff of leather, cola cubes, macerated cherries and biltong. A slight menthol finish.
