ADELPHI DUFFTOWN 20 YO 58%
Dufftown 20 Year Old 1999
1 of only 255 bottles from cask #2140
This whisky comes from a famous distillery in Du&own and is locally referred to as a “Burnside whisky”.
Drawn from a refill American oak ex-PX hogshead, this has the colour of Autumn gold with amber lights, and a good bead. Initially on the nose, Mackie’s vanilla ice cream and Fox’s Glacier Mints, moving to cake mix (especially sultanas), fig rolls, Cadbury’s Cherry Ripe chocolate bars and Bircher muesli with apricots.
The palate brings juicy mandarins, coconut flakes and Gjetost (Norwegian goat’s cheese) finishing with notes of dulce de leche.
A very rare whisky especially in single cask at this age.
About Du&own Speyside
A 20-year-old blended malt from independent bottler Adelphi, named Du&own – likely a hint to its origins. A’er two decades in a single cask (#2140 to be specific), the Scottish bottler freed the whisky and bottled it up at 58% ABV.
