5 Notes

Pollenflug
Expert Senior Pollenflug Tasting note
15 Dec 2017 6:19 pm
Pollenflug gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Auburn
Nose

Der hohe Alkoholgehalt (60,9%) ruft ein leichtes Stechen in der Nase hervor, welches auch nach über 20 Minuten nicht vollends verflogen ist. Schöne Sherrynoten dominieren das Geschehen: Pflaumen, Kirschen, schwarze Johannisbeeren, saftige Orangen, Mandeln, Marzipan, reichlich Karamell, Schokolade und zarte Anklänge von Eiche nehme ich wahr. Unter Hinzugabe von einigen Tropfen Wasser verfliegt die leicht alkoholische Note und die fruchtigen Aromen intensivieren sich spürbar. Die Nase wirkt nun deutlich runder und harmonischer.

Taste

Ohne Wasser: Heftiger Antritt, die Textur ist angenehm ölig. Der vordere Mundbereich wird von süßen Sherrynoten regelrecht umspült, während es auf der Zungenspitze heftig prickelt. Mit einigen Tropfen Wasser bleibt der Malt weiterhin sehr intensiv, wirkt jedoch gefälliger und harmonischer. Die Fruchtnoten werden frischer und noch süßer, ich registriere reichlich rote Früchte, Orangen, Schokolade, Karamell, Mandeln, zarte Anklänge von Leder und würzige Eiche.

Finish

Mittellang, intensiv und süß-würzig. Fruchtige Sherrynoten, süße Waldbeeren, Karamell und würzige Eichenholznoten begleiten den Abgang. Etwas Zartbitterschokolade, ein Hauch Zimt, Nüsse und Orangenschalen runden das ausbalancierte Finish ab. Der Aberlour hinterlässt eine dezente, aber nicht störende, Bitterkeit am Gaumen.

Color
Tawny
Nose

The bottle been sitting half full for a month or so, and the alc is not as obvious as it was.

Heavy sherry (as expected) dark over ripe plums, orange chocolate, rasberries, and I think there's even a hint of sweet strawberry.


Taste

Even at +60% I like to sip these A'bunadh's neat. The sweetness sort of softens the impact of the ABV, and there's not that many whiskies being bottled above 60% so I take it as a treat.

This is a bit thicker and more oily than some of the previous recent batches I've tried.

Lots of Oloroso notes, mixed with sweet caramel, dark chocolate covered marzipan bar and some leather notes.

Very sweet, with surprisingly soft spicyness.


Finish

Fisnish is fairly long. Sherry liqueur and more of that nice confectionary marzipan.

Drying dark wood notes towards the end giving a barely noticable bitterness.


Comments

A good batch.
