Whisky Reviews for Aberfeldy 1993 GM

19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.09 points

  1. Prof_Dr_John scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The Aberfeldy 21 was after the Glenfarclas 12 my second bottle of whisky, which I bought myself. At the time on the recommendation of a buddy who has been dealing with whisky for a long time. For a newcomer was the 21er certainly ever a house number, but not to compare with this bottling here. This one is much more complex, bulky, voluminous and interesting. Especially lovers of cask strength bottlings from the sherry cask will get their money's worth with this whisky. Cost is a good keyword: for just under 200 euros you get a lot of whisky: 25 years, single cask, sherry puncheon (not the butt!), Grasp 58.8% and a color that pleases the eye. At Glendronach one pays 320 Euros or more. That does not have to be! This bottle is in any case equal to the Glendronach Single Casks. Maybe the distillery Aberfeldy will find a few more friends with this bottling of GM, that's definitely to be desired. 90 points from me and a clear buy recommendation (y)
    • Nose
      92 92
      Dark sherry, dark chocolate, at least 70%, more 85%. A touch of coffee and espresso, with a delicate touch of cinnamon or candy. Slight notes of vanilla (!) Join in, as do red fruits like cherries or red raspberries. The alcohol is quite present, a two drops of water are good for him, he opens something up and gets a bit more fruity. Notes of butterscotch and lavender are still to be heard. Very interesting
    • Taste
      92 92
      Wow! Shove on !! Old Scot! The alcohol is very present in the first few seconds, but disappears quite quickly and there is a very oily, almost creamy, warm mouthfeel. Now dominated by the chocolate, paired with light hints of nuts, darker fruits such as plums and blackberries are to taste. After some time the Aberfeldy becomes more and more lovely in the mouth. There is hardly any bitterness to be heard. Everything is very well balanced and the stormy start of the 58.8% is long forgotten.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Very pleasant, very warming and balanced. No false mark is recognizable. The delicate bitterness and pleasing sweetness alternate with sherry. Slowly, the posterior tongue becomes slightly more bitter, while at the tip of the tongue, the sweetness of the fruit can be maintained for some time. I would describe the departure as "long". After 5-6 minutes he is still quite present in the mouth. The tip of the tongue slowly dries and it leaves a very agreeable conglomeration of sweetness, fruit, chocolate and delicate bitterness in the mouth. Gorgeous!

  3. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A nice sherry finesse with this class that I love.
    A profile that I like because there is no excess ...
    It is well done, it's good but a bit expensive and dry.
    • Nose
      The first fragrances surprise me on hazelnuts, dried fruits and pear liquor.
      Then all this disappears to give way to a waxy wood, precious, honey of acacia, vanilla, red fruits (light).
      Finally some floral notes wander in the glass with also what I do not know what cooked meat (???)
    • Taste
      The mouth is dry despite the perfect balance.
      There is always this waxy wood, precious with red fruits, some spices and vegetal notes.
    • Finish
      Average length on licorice and spices first and then on the vegetable and vanilla woody with a few drops of coffee with milk.

  5. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very chocolaty, also fruity in the mouth and nice and dry. A perfect malt not overly squeezed by the sherry! Water opens it nicely.

  6. Holle525 scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    The best Aberfeldy I've ever had. Great body and well-integrated alcohol. Largely without blemish and blame.

    What a grenade. Wonderful sweet fruit and just the right amount of wood influence. Absolutely my thing and unfortunately much too expensive.
    • Nose
      93 93
      Full flavor, ripe, sweet fruits, orange, apricots, sultanas, pastries, marzipan, neat dark chocolate, cloves, herbs, cereals, biscuits, malt coffee, Antica Formula.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Again full and sweet, with cocoa, herbs, prunes, sultanas, marzipan, sugar beet syrup, cane sugar and oak spice.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long and sweet, with dark fruit, syrup and cocoa. In the finish, the oak comes out a little more clearly.
