  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A whisky that is full of sight. The finish is set back but the nose and mouth are excellent. For sherry lovers. Thanks to Tomy for this discovery!
    90+ / 91-
    • Nose
      Very immediately very sherry on nuts, dark chocolate, coffee. Alcohol is well integrated. The nose develops a certain welcome freshness, with some notes of citrus. The wood spices are very present.
    • Taste
      Alcohol always well integrated. No OBE. It's expressive, lively, rather dry. We find substantially the same things as in the nose, with coffee and cocoa. The nose suggested something a little sweet but not too much.
    • Finish
      Very woody, spicy, with cocoa, lots of coffee. Alas, the bitterness of the wood is a little too present and makes the final drying.

    Dark amber color, nose a little closed at the opening of the sample, quite woody, chocolate, coffee, raisins, leather, tobacco, lacks a little fruit. The mouth brings just this fruity side, especially with a few drops of water, powerful, dry, woody, on leather, coffee, but also fig, mandarin, plum, spices (cloves). Long finish, dry, woody, spicy. If the mouth is great, it lacked a bit of fruit in the nose and the final to be an exceptional whisky.

    Aberfeldy 19y Manager's Dram, 61.3%, OB botteled 20/10/1991, sherry cask - Highland - 92/100
    Blissful 'dirty' nose. By 'dirty' I mean something towards the smell of a wrung out mop. And for the sake of clarity, this is not a let down, on the contrary, I love it! Then nuts. And charcoal. Very complex, but especially very tasty. On the taste again nuts, and fruit. Citrus. Sweet (honey). Does not need water despite its alcohol percentage. A long, delicious aftertaste on fruit and smoke. Top whisky! http://onversneden.com/2008/06/16/managers-dram/
