Whisky Reviews for Aberlour 13-year-old
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.48 points
Waxy. Seems closed despite 15 minutes aeration, almost oxidized. Blindly, we could have taken him for a "wise" Ben Nevis. Very spicy, nutmeg, white bread, nice freshness with hints of bitter oranges.
Powerful and persistent. It encompasses all the country. Very tasty on chocolate and dried fruits (dates, figs).
Very long. Again and again on chocolate and dried fruits.
- Luxurious, sherry whisky with a rich palette of shades and depth. The fortress is almost not felt, the balance is high. This is the tastiest Aberlour I have ever tasted!
Thick, viscous, perfumery, filled with noble sherry shades. I can smell old lacquered furniture, cherries, prunes, spices, nuts, cocoa, chocolate cake, mint ... Gorgeous!
The taste shows tones of cherry, sweet cherry, mint, oak and citrus. Very well!
Long, smooth, enveloping. First, there are echoes of dried fruits, cherries, cherries, then the nuances of all kinds of spices, cocoa and chocolate crust appear. In the end, the delicate tones of oak, menthol and a cigar flavor haunt for a long time. Super!
- Excellent whisky, balance and balance of all components are the main features.
- Very good for 13 years old
- Beautiful, relatively young Sherrymalt. In terms of price, that's too ambitious for my age. But he has tasted.
Typical sherry old. Immediately after pouring the sherry was somehow something set up. After a few minutes in the glass but then it settles again.
Figs and dates. Aronia honey. Cranberry. With some water then also cooked apricots. Spicy notes. Bread crust. Tree bark. Wood dust.
Fruit tea with candy sugar. Apricots. Acacia honey. Raisin pot coated with butter and still sour cherry jam on it. Some agave syrup. Then spicy, slightly spicy oak notes.
Dried fruits (rather lighter). Tree sap. It's getting a bit drier. Some cinchona bark.
