Glover 22 Year Old (Hanyu, Longmorn & Glen Garioch) - By Adelphi
A very rare and hyped release from Adelphi. Named after Thomas Blake Glover who left Aberdeenshire, Scotland for Japan at an early age where he played a significant role in the country's modernisation in the late 19th Century for which he is celebrated in Japan to this day.
Adelphi was offered the chance to select a single refill ex-sherry hogshead from one of the few remaining casks from Hanyu Distillery. It was disgorged and shipped to England for marrying with a carefully determined volume of Scotch Whisky from two single casks: One a American oak ex-sherry butt distilled at Glen Garioch & one American Oak Ex-Sherry Hogshead from Longmorn.
The final ratio was assessed through extensive trial vattings by Alex Bruce and Charles MacLean. A very limited release of just 390 bottles worldwide.
