Whisky Reviews for Aberlour Casg Annamh

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [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...

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    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.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    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
      Pear juice, peach, caramel and even a little banana.
    • Taste
      Caramel, peach, almond, coffee candy (hopjes), pepper and a little smoke. It actually benefits from a drop of water, which makes it fruitier.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, apple, caramel and peach.

  6. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    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.

  7. Gris scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    http://www.justanotherdram.com/notes/aberlour-casg-annamh.html
    • 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.
