  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Really different from the A'Bunadh, not as sherried as I expected. 

    It contains considerably younger whisky than the 15YO, but makes up for that by a higher level of first fill and a higher ABV.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Pear juice, peach, caramel and even a little banana.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Caramel, peach, almond, coffee candy (hopjes), pepper and a little smoke. It actually benefits from a drop of water, which makes it fruitier.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Vanilla, apple, caramel and peach.

    This one seems to benefit from a long time in the glass. On the nose, a dank basement full of sherry barrels and one old can of varnish. No sweetness noted. More mineral notes. On the palate, after a medium micro-sip, the taste builds and builds to an impressive hit. Nuts, chocolate, raisins and oak spices. That part is similar to A’bunadh (and here at only 48% ABV, which is impressive). But it’s not as sherry intense and not as sweet as A’bunadh. Instead, there are a lot of flavors to pick out, swirling around in the malt and popping in and out of existence like quantum particles. There is a nice balance. With a little water and 2 more minutes in the glass, the flavor has spread out, becoming broader and deeper, and more settled into a relatively dry Oloroso sherried consensus. Overall, the dry Oloroso sherry character stands out, and is the arrival point, but there are a variety of different flavors encountered on the way there. Really interesting. A very well-presented NAS Aberlour.

  9. DramALife scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    S 8
    Share some similarities but lack the depth & complexity compared to A'Bunadh. Nonetheless, a very decent dram given the RRP. Would be great if it can age a bit more to tame the alcohol.

    N 26
    Nice sherry influence here, bringing delicate winery fruit. Malty & oaky. Unfortunately can also smell the youth behind it.

    P 24
    Quite spirit-driven. Getting a good balance between peppery and sweetness (orchard fruit, runny honey, even some Candy Floss grapes). Quite malty, with more vanilla and oak wood developing over time.

    F 24
    Short-Mid finish. Malty. Barley sugar. Mild oak spice lingering. Touch of tannin bitterness but not intrusive at all.

  14. Don Cassi scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Pure caramel on the nose. Behind it a bit sherry-tinged (mainly raspberries), as if the batch had been created from ex-bourbon barrels and then 2 barrels of the A'bunadh had been added. The longer he breathes, the fruity it becomes. After a while, citrus notes too.

    In the mouth, fruity and spicy with a slight tingling of alcohol and subtle coffee notes that continue through the finish. After the sweet nose, the woody-bitter finish surprises.
    Length: 4/10

    Not bad, but there is simply better in this price range: A'bunadh from our own company with a clear sherry influence or, for example, Glenallachie 12 (similar profile but more interesting).

    Grade: 2

  15. MrDvorak scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice thing, price fits and it tastes good too.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Somewhat strange, at the same time light and substantial. Apple, orange, pear, caramel and very light spice. A bit snappy, but not uncomfortable.
    • Taste

      Stronger and spicier than expected. The alcohol is already on the gas. Oak, orange (very clearly), leather, iron, vanilla, toffee

  18. hafssol scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Very interesting small batch release form Aberlour. Smooth and bold at the same time with its 48%. Clear wood notes and fruity sweetness (especially apricot, apple and tropical fruits), but also a strong, rounded, persistent taste.
    Impressive balance for a truly enjoyable dram, with bright quality/price ratio.

  19. Sensefreak scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A very different Aberlour. It’s very bourbon like rather than heavy sherry influenced. I expected more ... Fruity yes. Apples, pears, mango but all too synthetic IMO. 21,20,20,20.

    Sweet, accessible, square, slightly rough-hewn Scotch with no subtlety or complexity. An unpretentious lumberjack whisky. Just as clumsy as the bottle it comes from. Slobberspul, but certainly not dirty or to be avoided. Bang for your buck, they say.

    Open, fruity, with the aroma of orange and dried raisins, oak, a handful of dried fruits and pastries, the taste is slightly sweet with notes of pepper, caramel, dried apricots and nuts, the finish is short, dry, with notes of donut, chocolate and sweet spices.
    A nice small batch, the influence of the barrel is pretty decent sticking out, but not annoying. Rich and delicious. Good job. Drunk easier than Abuna and personally I like it even more.

  38. Abadon05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Great nose and the sweet fruit basket to please.
    What bothers me a bit is the dryness in the finish and unfortunately the ginger sharpness / wort. Sure, the 48 percent is not too weak, which is good for him. But that dominates me a little too strong.
    Definitely more than neat to good and tasty for the price on a NAS whisky.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Dark grape notes. This is already in the direction Most or even wine. It feels like a vintage.
      Well some dark orange notes. Add a decent portion of seasoning, go a bit towards ginger and some cinnamon and licorice.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet and fruity. In addition, the seasoning pushes on. In the beginning, short associations with a fruit basket. Then comes a little more of the wine and the spice continues to push strong. Raisins are coming too. Towards the end then dark orange, almost blood orange, only without the bitterness.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Will be very dry. Too bad, the sweetness is there in the beginning, but disappears completely. The oranges and the spice dominate. The oranges become even more blood orange.
      Short to medium length finish with lasting dryness.

  40. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Orange, raisins, spicy-woody, more woody on the nose, almost dusty, in the mouth then more dark chocolate / baking cocoa and clove sharpness to the fruity notes. Pretty good in principle ... but kind of like a bit between the 12's non-chillfiltered and the a'bunadh, and I'm not a fan of odd things, and if in doubt, I'd rather rely on one of those two, Annamh pulls me off not consciously. And he awakens the unpleasant feeling of wanting to "relieve" the a'bunadh with the simultaneous opportunity to "adjust" the price for him. Similar name, less percents, bourbon barrels at -> cheaper.
    So now that I've got him in the jar, he likes me quite well, but "buy me!" he does not just scream.

  41. Pyromann scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Sherry-infused whisky, but not exactly a sherry bomb. Nothing like Glendronach 15 Revival or their CS versions. This is more like lighter sherry in combination with wood. Don!t know what, but this whisky is missing something. Would rather opt for Abunadh.
    • Nose
      Wood, sweetness, pretty intense.
    • Taste
      The nose character continues, Woody and sherry-ish character. Sherry is rather hidden behind the wood.

      Maybe less interesting than the nose. Very nutty, the dried fruits remain, and a bit more bourbon wood influences

    (Blind tasting)
    The light fruits and spices make it quite interesting, if only the sticky would not be, which I do not quite like ..
    • Nose
      In the nose first fruity sweet, the sweetness goes quickly into the sticky .. could be an Irish again.
      Not quite ripe apple, green grape and some freshness (alcohol?)
      Also a few spices, ginger maybe a little dry cinnamon
      becomes more interesting over time
    • Taste
      Sweet again in the mouth, is so sticky again
      then a little more fruity and the spices come through especially
    • Finish
      In the finish caramel and apple remain so medium

  47. Kaleva scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Interesting whisky with a beautiful and fairly complex nose on the flowery and fruity side. However the palate is quite punchy and rather rough (comparing to nose) with kaleidoscope of spices, which continue in the aftertaste. Overall pleasant and very “summer” expression form Aberlour, which is reasonably priced in addition.
    • Nose
      Light fusel oil notes at the beginning, fresh, sweet, malty, flowery (pink peony and hints of rose petals), fruity (yellow pears, pear acid drops), sultanas, vanilla, honey notes, caramelized lemon zest
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, punchy, spicy (pepper mix), malty, fruity notes (peach, baked apple), orange zest, oak
    • Finish
      Medium-long, rather dry, malty and sweet (berry marmalade), sweet liquorice, nuts (walnuts, almonds), herbs, oaky tannins

    Not a bad whisky but doesn't stand up well against the others in the Aberlour range.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Higher ABV showing, opens with a little burn followed by wood spices of cinnamon and ginger. It becomes fresh with hard green apples and a hint of raisin. Through time the freshness takes a back seat and the nose gains coffee notes with some powdered chocolate.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Spicy arrival with ginger root, little pepper as well. The palate shows more sherry cask with raisins, oranges and nuts. Holding in the mouth reveals young oak and adds a slight sour touch.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is sweet and warm, quite long but the warmth turns to a new oak note.

    [September, 2018] I had this dram at the Aberlour distillery simply to check if it is as good as the a'bunadh releases…

    ...and it is different. This is not a heavy sherry loaded whisky but rather delicately composed out of both sherry and bourbon matured casks. By the way, I usually find the bourbon "distillery only" casks significantly better than the sherried "distillery only" ones. This release certainly is rather sub-standard to all the sherry fans of Aberlour but actually I find it a fine composition of the best what a young Aberlour has to offer: A balanced and flawless NAS edition that is worth its reasonable price - easy to sip and enjoyable to nose (because of the variety of aromas and flavours from the different cask types). This is probably one the best NAS editions I tried for a while...
    • Nose
      87 87
      The colour is tawny and the nose offers a rich and intense profile of both bourbon and sherry cask-induced aromas in a balanced combo. There are some strong buttery notes (remember Walker's shortbread, produced in a little Scottish town named Aberlour?) beside clean modern-style sherry and spicy wooden aromas without any off-note that I can find. There is no obvious "Wow!" in that nose but the longer I sniff it more I like it - it is a love affair that takes some time to develop...
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is not really layered but it is easy to sip and without any obvious flaws. The buttery, sherry and spicy flavours are in a good balance and I would call this a dram one should quaff without too much thinking about it. Perfect to enjoy during a good conversation or card game but not really suited for "whisky analysis paralysis". Some water turns the nose surprisingly less interesting but smoothes the taste and finish. I like to nose it neat and prefer to drink it a little reduced at about 43% abv.
    • Finish
      86 86
      This dram arrives warming and nicely coating in the mouth with just a minor peppery moment (that is not distracting at all). The finish is long and adds some chocolatey flavours but some drying-astringent feelings (tannins) too, unfortunately. Nonetheless, very enjoyable...

    • Nose
      Clairement moins sur le sherry que les différents batchs d’A’Bunadh. On est sur des arômes très prononcés d’oranges et autres agrumes comme le citron. Mais on retrouve aussi des raisins et une touche de pêches. Le nez est assez vineux et on y décèle également des arômes de bonbons d’une célèbre marque (Aberlour c’est beau la vie… Vous voyez?), plus particulièrement leurs cerises. Surprenant mais pas déplaisant.
    • Taste
      Légèrement crémeux et huileux en bouche, sur des arômes toujours très fruités. Des cerises et des pêches, toujours avec ce côté bonbon et toujours de la même marque. Le bois de chêne fait son apparition en fin de bouche avec une pointe d’épices.
    • Finish
      Longue, fraîche et fruitée, avec un beau retour des raisins. Le tout avec une touche d’épices.

    Young, oak forward and not very inspiring. Before the recent price hike, you used to be able get an Aberlour a'bunadh for this kind of money. The Casg Annamh is a poor replacement if you ask me.
    • Nose
      Young and fresh smelling, with some pieces of red apple, as well as caramel, candy cane, and pear, as well as some pickled lemon peel and sour peach candy.
    • Taste
      Again, the young spirit is noticeable, with a good amount of oak here as well. First some sweetness with marzipan and honey, but then quite spicy, with lots of pepper and cloves, as well as a hint of mint.
    • Finish
      Lingering cherry aroma and spices.

    With a few drops of water , the malt becomes even flowery; Enjoyed from a large Bordeaux glass, it becomes more spicy with more sherry notes. On the palate and the finish the Aberlour remains fruity-sweet, the few drops of water do not change anything essential; not even when enjoying the big glass.

    Even after several rehearsals I feel that this pronounced "artificial sweetness" disturbs me. It's like with "lovely wine" - there are very bad things sugared. And there are excellent ice wine. Basically, the Casg Annamh already goes in the direction of "whisky ice wine". If you like sweets, you will earn 89 points. That would be too much for my personal taste.
    • Nose
      Berry sweet blackberries, raspberries), slightly damp soil, sherry, a somewhat artificial fruit-gummy bear aroma.
    • Taste
      Once again comes this Aberlour full of fruit gum sweet in the mouth, slightly tingling. Today, it almost looks like Red Bull in Speyside special bottling, matured. Always amazing.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the Aberlour is medium-long, the berry fruit remains, the artificial sweetness goes back a bit, a little bit of bitterness indicates that the malt is not very old and was in oak barrels.

    On the nose, orange fruits, a little chocolate and spices!
    In the mouth, a pastry side comes out immediately, with cream and chocolate, and vanilla in return, the fruits are on the peach.
    In the final, the sweet sherry comes out at this time, end, then vanilla and spices, very little wood!
    A simple dram, between standards and Abunnad'h, but lacking a safe.

    If the 12 year old unchillfiltered is the strawberry whisky par excellence then this one is clearly the cherry whisky. A strong summer whisky dominated by fruity-sweet aromas. Does he need an age? For me not necessarily, enjoying sometimes can be relatively easy - 21.04.2018
    • Nose
      Light sherry aroma, what a fruity-sweet nose, red apple (Red Prince), Amarena cherry, raspberry, ripe banana, apricot, brown sugar, the alcohol is there but holds back pleasantly, nuances of rosé wine, some cereals, oatmeal, in the Background is malt noticeable
    • Taste
      The fruity-sweet potpourri continues, very creamy and oily, cherries are immediately there, pink pepper, the 48% also bring a bit sharp with do it well, caramel also shows up before a slight bitterness presented the barrel and woody spiciness rises, dark chocolate, the supposed rose note is here much stronger and almost looks like a light red wine, at the end it is again fruity like a tending cherry candy - gorgeous

    • Nose
      A completely different nose than the A'bunadh. If there were strong typical sherry notes, you can expect a completely different spectrum of flavors here. Pickled sweet maraschino cherries and marzipan, almond oil, very ripe and lightly pressed bananas with brown spots on the shell. In addition beautiful caramel, although not as dark and intense as with typical sherry whiskys. Dried peaches bring a touch of sherry standard into play. And then they are already here - the extraordinary oak flavors! They remind me of freshly broken branches of fruit trees, so a juicy sweetish and intense dry-spicy woody odor. In combination with some wood polish it almost reminds of Virgin Oak. These are the most interesting wood notes that I had in the glass for a long time.
    • Taste
      Very oily and tough, it runs over the tongue, reminiscent of fresh soft linseed oil. Warm and strong are beautiful sweet honey notes with vanilla and marzipan. Again, the spicy dry peaches and overripe grapes. The sweetness goes gradually into warming edged woody notes with beautiful spices, light and smooth polished oak wood instead of old dark barrels. Everything very strong, fresh and invigorating.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and tasty, especially the sweetness of freshly chewed blades of grass and malt sugar. In addition, a distant appeal of pickled raisins, beautiful spices such as cloves and cardamom and again a lot of sweet oak oak flavors.

    Nice and surprising whisky, at Aberlour you expect at least a lot of sherryvat influence, and that has this Casg Annamh well hardly ...
    Much sweeter and fruity, candy influences, totally different from the Aberlours that I've drunk so far.
    • Nose
      Fresh! Apples, along with raisins, but also very floral, citrus too, at times just a hint of Dreft lemon. Peach too, and swims of Haribo sweets (cherries).
    • Taste
      Little pepper, sweet, caramel. A lot of peach, and again Haribo, especially the foam banana. Also coffee.
    • Finish
      Peach very strong again, slightly tingling, quite long, also some wood tones. Apples, and caramel.

    a peach monster that reminds me on the glendronach 14 yo madeira cask finish [WID 89342]. 10-15 min breathing improves the aroma profile in general and vanishes the slight alcoholic note in the nose. 
    • Nose
      peaches with powdered sugar, daim chocolate bar and a little notice of alcohol. 
    • Taste
      caramel, apples, peaches, chopped & roasted nuts, a hint of pepper. 
    • Finish
      vanilla, peaches, shortbread, chocolate stays at the end for a long time.
