Adelphi Distillery May 2010 Special Dancy Man Society Newsletter & Bottling – Scotch Whisky News


Dear all,
A busy month is coming to an end. We started at the Speyside Whisky Festival, as always a great success and many thanks to all those who visited our table! Then, a re-scheduled visit to Switzerland (thanks to previous volcanic activity) and a chance to show a sample of the new Liddesdale 18yr old which is due to be bottled in 2 weeks time (next month’s offer) – I took the sample to the private whisky club of one of Europe’s finest hotels, Les Trois Rois in Basel. Every 2 months 12 members meet, bringing with them an indisclosed whisky to match the theme of the night. Last Wednesday the theme was, appropriately, Independent Bottlers, and we tasted a great range of whiskies from a wide selection of bottlers including examples of Port Ellen, Bowmore, Glenrothes, Highland Park and Rosebank. The tasting was completely blind and I am delighted to announce that the Liddesdale was the highest scoring whisky of the evening. This is great feedback for us as we have tried, with the Fascadale, Laudale, Liddesdale range, to bring whiskies to the market that are both very approachable and yet still complex and full of flavour.
As promised, this month’s offer is for the Fascadale Batch 2.
Like Batch 1,  the 2nd batch is a limited edition Single Malt of just 10 hogesheads from an undisclosed Island distillery, bottled at 10yrs old and reduced to a very drinkable 46% vol. In true Adelphi style, the whisky is unchill-filtered and left at natural colour.
Tasting note:

1 of only 3746 bottles

A specially selected 10 cask batch from a single Island distillery, this highlights the best of the West – “ship’s haven”, Fascadale lies on the north-west point of the rugged, and timeless, Ardnamurchan peninsula. Its hidden, pebbled beach looks West and North towards the islands of Eigg, Rum, Muck and Skye. Whispered tales of smuggling abound…

White pepper, smoked bacon and sticking plasters. Flapjacks on the beach, with a large pinch of rock salt and a good dose of chilli pepper and licorice.

The Dancey Man Offer price is £35.00 inc. VAT per bottle or £200.00 inc. VAT per case of 6.
Please let me know if you would like to order any. I will aim to relay your orders to the warehouse, but there may be a slight delay as I will be communicating from Down Under for the next 17 days – a report on this trip next month as well…
Best wishes,
