  1. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I rarely had Aberlour UA in the glass and then killed by great barrels - this shows rather the potential of the distillate, the Brennereicharakter of the 12yo NCF I still find it - elegant but not weak - I like very well - who can have a bottle for the issue price to be happy

    I needed some water on the palate to soften it a little - nose and palate benefited from it.
    On the palate, I was surprised by the flavors, as the nose is rather shy and less complex.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Powdered sugar, caramel, geranium leaves, tree of life, juniper berries, laurel, tart olive oil, cinnamon, kirsch, furniture polish, baking cocoa, a bit earthy, wet leaves, mixed red fruit spread, cranberry, pomegranate peel - a little closed - completely acid - free I miss a bit the antithesis Sweet
    • Taste
      90 90
      Strawberry and cherry jam, tobacco, ginger, pepper, lovely sweetness, some leather, oiled old hardwood, furniture polish, antique wax, sawdust, dark chocolate, marzipan, walnut - complex fine-dry cascades - not too bitter and very lively - a blend of tannins and Roasted aromas, very nice texture - clean, rather fluid (not necessarily sticky) on the palate, but very noble and surprisingly volumninös on the palate - you should like wax
    • Finish
      90 90
      Crystalline red fruits, candied - compote - in liqueur, very nice woody aromas with balanced bittering balance. creamy, chocolaty, warm - long and lively

  2. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very good dram. Hard and intense.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Caramel, but not very sweet. Rather towards cream brulee. Forest floor, wood. Licorice and leather. Something sal ammoniac, then chocolate again. Spices, cloves. Vanillin.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Warming and full. Strong. Immediately ripe dark fruits and heavy Christmas spices. Drying quickly with oak, forest soil and chocolate. Orange and turn leather and caramel. Coffee and hazelnut.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long, warm, dry. Oak, fruit, caramel and leather. Some coffee.

  4. Gloin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The smell surprises, as it is not as sherry-dominated as the color would suggest. The combination of flavors is exciting and independent.
    In the mouth something disturbs first the astringency, but then unfolds the whisky with many flavors.
    The finish matches the taste and shows the long storage in oak.
    A demanding whisky with rough edges, and a rough hearty friend.
    I would never have blindly typed an Aberlour
    • Nose
      Nut and plum, moss, some caramel, a little leather, in the background cherry, nutmeg, butter, after an initial dominance of fresh spice and nut notes, settle after a while more and more the sherynots
    • Taste
      Light body, medium onset, astringent, slightly sour, sour cherry, some tart orange, walnut, chicory, then sweeter, filter coffee, a touch of sulfur
    • Finish
      Oak and dry sherry, almost a bit towards fino, nut, balsamic, dark chocolate, orange peel

  10. DerDennis! scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great, old Sherrymalt. Almost too much barrel, but very well tamed by the sherry.
    Many dark fruits, chocolate, cinnamon and malt, peppermint and pleasant notes of wood
