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
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
Light body, medium onset, astringent, slightly sour, sour cherry, some tart orange, walnut, chicory, then sweeter, filter coffee, a touch of sulfur
Oak and dry sherry, almost a bit towards fino, nut, balsamic, dark chocolate, orange peel
