  1. Gil firth scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great sherry peace. Aberlour goes excellent woth sherry. Leather, chocolate, apples, nice body. Long finish.

  4. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Strong, spicy sherry board.
    More like something for autumn.
    • Nose
      89 89
      What a round sherry nose (after enough standing time):
      strong spiciness with balanced berry compote, without acidity, alcoholic stinging or other disturbing factors. A little distance from the Glencairn helps;)
      Tender, honey-sweet glue, dates with a bit of toasted bacon coating. It's very appetizing!
    • Taste
      88 88
      Rich, oily sherry porridge with some candied ginger and white pepper. Not quite as round as on the nose, but still tasty and mouth-filling.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish awaits with notes from nose and palate, is quite long and with candied lemons on top.
      The oak load is clearly noticeable at the end and it becomes tannic. So just in the frame.

  5. Cubey666 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    chocolate, moccha, clearly sherry cask (duh). quite spicy and intens on the taste, but not as intensive as e.g. an Aberlour A'bunadh. finish is spicy and chocolaty.

  6. Lakerfield scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    All this transferring and finishing, something must be wrong with the malt if it needs all that. Right? I was sceptical at first but Whiskybroker managed to transform this Aberlour into something of beauty. Haven't had enough Aberlour to say I know the profile very well, but I like what I'm having. This is the second whisky I've reviewed from their Galloway Series and the second with a sherry finish. The Ardmore from that series was very good too. My compliments to the guys from Creetown, again.
    • Nose
      A sherried malt from the dark side, with a side of dustiness. Goooood. Starting with pineapple, apricot, blueberry, raisin and fig. Then onto the darker notes; dark chocolate, Bastogne cookie, hazelnut syrup, orange marmalade, licorice, and some beeswax. Thereafter cappuccino, leather, walnut, dunnage funk and damp basement. Smells like a deluxe coffee break. I'm not really a coffee person but I could settle with this :)
    • Taste
      Wonderfully rich, just like the nose. No sharpness at all. We've got orange zest, raisin, fig, cherry, strawberry and apple. Then hazelnut syrup, dark chocolate, salted caramel, cherry cola and licorice root. Further on there's roast coffee bean, oloroso sherry, leather, tobacco and wood polish. Such a good job on not letting this become too dry. Again very coffee-like. I love this nutty and chocolatey style of sherry maturation.
    • Finish
      Short to medium. A bit weakish here after a grand nose and palate. Dark chocolate, whipped cream, cereal and still that coffee note throughout which I dig.

  12. 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

  13. DerDennis! scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    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

  14. 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.

  15. Vallado scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Liquid cafe visit!

    It is special, certainly not for every day, you have to get involved.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Reminds me of these Scottish "slices", a sweet pastry (among others) with fudge, almonds, caramel and butter. It's the same smell from the glass, but I can not find the chocolate. For this I recognize old coffee margin and pickled Amarena cherries
    • Taste
      84 84
      Nut-bitter, tingling spiciness (wasabi? Ginger?), Burnt caramel
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long. Ristretto with dark chocolate, oak flavor

  16. Ganga scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Wow, that is a sweet nose. Carmelized sugars and barley grist. White grapes on the palate. This is really tasty.

  17. JungleDram scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting nose, caramelized sugar, almost burnt. Coffee, some marzipan, almond biscuits.

    Roasted flavors of coffee, brown sugar and candied ginger on the palate. Spicy oak, slightly salty, goes towards Virgin Oak, strong toast.

    Finish long, warm and spicy.

  23. 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

  26. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Aberlour 1992 WhB WID: 126630
    Abv. 51.9%, several sherry casks, 26 years
    Nose: many roasted aromas, beautiful Olorosoenase, spicy, red fruit, berry fruit
    Taste: Berry jam, mocha, nuts and a slight poppy sweetness
    Departure: coffee, coffee chocolates, and a medium long fruity finish
    Conclusion: It comes in this Malt with me very much on the daily form. One day, I could spend hours hiding it and think the roast aromas are great. On other days I do not find her and the malt gets almost boring.
