    Aberlour 17 yo 2002/2019 (57.6%, OB, 1st fill sherry hogshead, cask #2499)

    Two stars and a half
    A single cask, I believe for la Maison du Whisky in Paris. Sometimes, you really need whisky when you’re in Paris! Colour: office coffee. Nose: coffee indeed, teak oil, wood smoke, sauna oils, eucalyptus, burnt juniper berries, pencil shavings, lapsang souchong… But where does this smokiness come from? With water: more lapsang souchong, freshly sawn woods, pine wood… Mouth (neat): a bit strong, with wood varnish and a hotness reminiscent of some artisanal plum spirit. Some burnt caramel, and really a lot of pencil shavings. Sherry-treated STR? There’s more oak than sherry. With water: better, fruitier, more on jams and Chinese sauces, or plums, but it lacks polish and roundness. Finish: rather long. Plum spirit aged in new wood and chocolate sauce (mole). Comments: not bad at all, but the oak feels too much for me, it’s too ‘modern’, pine-y, and too wood-driven. A tad disappointed.
