    [October, 2018] I had a tasting dram of this very pricey bottle at the bar of the Aberfeldy distillery to verify if it is worth buying…

    ...and unfortunately, it is not! This is a sherried whisky of average-only quality, at best: because the colour of a dram is very dark does not automatically mean it is very good, too. Completely overpriced in my honest opinion, I would not spend more than 80 Euro on a bottle of that quality...
    • Nose
      87 87
      The nose offers a modern-style oloroso profile that is punchy and rather shy on herbal and sweet winey aromas. Some water does not change a lot and more water … does not change anything either. This nose stays shy and unimpressive regardless how long you wait or how much water you add.
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste is of a flawless herbal-sweet sherry profile with raisins and figs but no chocolatey notes at all (quite unusual with a sherried dram). After adding some water the taste gets both more alcoholic-punchy and more bitter, I do not like that. More water flattens the dram quickly.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The initial mouthfeel is hot, peppery, creamy and coating with no distracting moments. The finish is long and adds no new impressions beside a very shy chocolatey note. After reduction the finish gets bitter-astringent before it quickly flattens out.
