  1. RJKrueger scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The strongest Aberfeldy I've had in my glass so far and the most surprising. Unfortunately not a bargain, otherwise it would have long been on the shelf.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The nose is dominated by cherries and red berries, there are also complex, spicy wood notes and dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Strong, oily, sherry-heavy - not at all recognizable as Aberfeldy but good, very good even. Sherry, dark fruits, cherry, wood, leather, tobacco - everything is there. The alcohol strength is great, I don't need any water.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Very long and sherry-heavy, complex, dark cocoa, light liquorice notes.

    tasted at the distillery - not worth the money - surprised they can't do it better. Cinnamon and cloves in the finish stay in my memory the longest. Buying 6 bottles of Glen Scotia double cask would give more pleasure.
