    I tried another Alberfeldy 1993 by GM before so I bought this bottle.

    But this one do disappoint me. Alberfeldy should be full of apricot fruity but this one isn't.

    It's not a bad dram, typical Speyside style but not as fruity as expected. Quite hot on palate as well.

  3. WhiskyCasual scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Lots of bright fruits.
    In the mouth it is rather hearty with a lot of oak

    The nose is exciting. Not incredibly complex, but interesting.

    A delicate smoke both on the nose and on the palate. Was there a Benromach in the default setting ?!
    • Nose

      Quite fruity and lovely. Full fruit bouquet. Clear raisins, plums, cashews and burnt coffee. Interestingly, very delicate smoke too.

      Here, too, delicate smoke with oranges and again the cashew nuts. A bit of Chinese rice wine is also therefore. The raisins are only distantly perceptible
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish does not bring much new, but consistently continues the palate.

  7. LeChiffre scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A modern sherry barrel maturation, very tasty but also without great depth and tension. I'm guessing a barrel made from American white oak. Those who like the modern sherry profile are in good hands here. Personally, I find it tasty and drinkable, but too interchangeable in view of the price and therefore quite expensive for a large bottle.
