Whisky Reviews for Aberlour 1992 WhB

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.56 points

  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. 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

    Liquid cafe visit!

    It is special, certainly not for every day, you have to get involved.

      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

  6. Ganga scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

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

  7. 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.
