Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!

Painch, tripe, or thairm:

As lang's my arm.
An exceptional single malt whisky matured from specially selected casks that deliver the true character of a 25 year old Glen Scotia malt whisky.
The whisky has been gently matured in our finest American oak barrels before each cask being hand selected and married in first fill bourbon for a period of 12 months before bottling.
The signature nose has hints of vanilla oak, interwoven with the subtle notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits.
Nose : Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke.
Taste : The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, vague sherry trifle note - the custard presumably is oaky vanilla, fruity flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolutely resonates through the palate
Finish : Dry peat and oak; enough
molassed sweetness to see the malt through to a satisfying end. Above all the spices, rather rise up and usher this extraordinary whisky to its exit!
A limited batch release, Solera method, blended Scotch whisky with a high percentage of well-aged malts, the Adelphi Private Stock was selected by the first owner of the company to meet his Grandmother’s demand for an “everyday whisky” with complexity. Adelphi Private Stock was selected by Charles MacLean and James Walker in 1993. The actual recipe of the Adelphi Private Stock remains a closely guarded secret.
Blended from well-aged malt and grain Scotch whiskies, with an emphasis on the Highlands and Islands, this limited-run blend is put together in a solera-based system which retains the consistency from batch to batch.
The best way to broaden your knowledge of Scotch whisky and its broad range of flavors is to enjoy a few drams and figure it out for yourself – taste, after all, is subjective. But there are some things you can learn beforehand to guide you on your way to a more refined palate!
