About
April Fool's 2022

April Fool's Whisky

To celebrate April Fool’s day, we have released this small-batch, 5-year-old whisky from Adelphi’s Ardnamurchan distillery.

We worked with Alex Bruce – descendant of Andrew Usher, the father of modern blended whisky – to select five casks, bringing together old-fashioned smoke with bright, unpeated spirit to create a truly modern whisky.

The distillery is one of the most up-to-date in Scotland, marrying traditional production with green technology to create the country’s most sustainable operation.

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Apples, oranges and freshly polished leather shoes. A curl of smoke winds out of the glass, followed by chocolate, earthy forest floors and a touch of gummi bear fruitiness. Hints of farmyard and gravel sit behind, along with black pepper and strawberries.

    • Palate

      Apple and banana covered with a thick layer of rich peat smoke and a sprinkling of barrel char. Milk chocolate and cocoa nibs poke through the smoke, along with dried mango, sultanas and a handful of dates. Gentle peppery spice – white pepper and cinnamon – builds, with a touch of orange and lemon jelly.

    • Finish

      Cocoa nibs and leather slowly fade to reveal toffee apples and light fruitcake.
