Fusion Whisky and Adelphi Distillery are proud to announce the latest release of The Glover whisky, our iconic fusion whisky that celebrates the achievements of “Scottish Samurai” Thomas Blake Glover, and made from a captivating blend of Scotch and rare Hanyu whisky from Japan.

The 4th Edition of The Glover sees a little more sherry cask influence than in the previous release, explains Adelphi’s managing director and master blender Alex Bruce. In his tasting notes for the new Glover, Alex says: “The colour of copper gold with a moderate bead, this is initially slightly dusty (like an old oak cabinet), with fruity notes emerging: orange zest, lime marmalade, strawberry Chewits, physalis, soft Manuka honey, tangerines and fresh grapes all accompanied by violin bow ‘rosin’.

Alex adds: “Both mouth filling and teeth coating (waxy), it’s initially tangy with decadent marzipan and milk chocolate leading to a very well balanced finish warmed by a hint of fresh pepper and the slightest hint of distant smoke.”

The 4th released of The Glover is an 18 year old, with a 49.2%abv. Only 1406 bottles have been produced, with an RRP of £145.

The whisky brand takes its name from Thomas Blake Glover, nicknamed the Scottish Samurai because of the profound impact he had on the modernisation of Japan in the 19th century. Mr Glover was the first foreigner to receive the Order of the Rising Sun from the Japanese Emperor in recognition of his many achievements.

The third version was launched in the second half of last year, selling out immediately. The two previous editions of The Glover were launched simultaneously on October 26th, 2015, in Tokyo and Aberdeen.
