Lot 509
1995 Adelphi Selection 'Glen Moray Distillery' 22 Year Old Speyside Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky. From a refill Sherry Hogshead (American Oak). Polished mahogany colour with a good bead. This dram takes a few moments to open up but it is soon followed by an explosion of aromas which continue to develop in the glass: Medjool dates, Turkish Delight, spiced and dried fruit. Wanderings through an exotic souk. Mouth drying and cloying on the palate - Szechuan pepper, cinnamon, flavours of rum raisin and oloroso Sherry. With water, the nose dries out slightly. Wood polish and lingering rum raisin notes. A lovely texture develops on the palate with the addition of water: sandalwood and coconut with a dry finish.
