  1. SimonOHA scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Elegant, complex, incredibly good. Hard not to love. What was.
    • Nose
      Dense, heavy, sticky nose. Wood molasses. A varnish appears and brings freshness. Allowed to breathe, the wood clears up and becomes more syrupy. Stirred black coffee with speculoos. Fig cream with cloves. Still concentrated but increasingly soft and sweet. The freshness now comes from eucalyptus bark. It's really elegant.
    • Taste
      Elegant palate, immediately pleasant. Successive layers of different woods, each with a roughness: waxy, mint varnish... Espresso. Caramel nuts. Becomes tarry and rubbery when left in the mouth for a long time. Dried figs, currants, rotten blood oranges. The complexity is crazy.
    • Finish
      Final on a cream of earth, dark chocolate. Fresh leather. Burnt coffee.

    [July, 2022] Last night we did another of these 3M-tastings (Mega-Monster-Marathon) in memoriam of good old Roland (R.I.P.) who introduced me into the wonderful world of single malt whisky: Six people, six hours and sixty drams (small measures only, because otherwise we would have ended up at the hospital).

    In such a setting it is neither possible nor does it make any sense to write detailed notes hence take my scores with a grain of salt. This was the menu after a "warm-up" with four private cask samples (not rated):

    01) Aberlour Glenlivet 1965, 8 years old, dumpy square bottle, pale colour, 50% WB5993 ~ 90 points

  4. OJK scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Incredible depth, presence and elegance, despite the high ABV. Old school sherry notes of tobacco, leather, dates, gunpowder and spices (cinnamon, clove etc), herbs and honeys. A dram to savour for hours in the glass.

  5. VISION_CHEN scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Very deep color, chocolate flavored oatmeal, with many fresh fruits, black, red, blue, berry, Plum. In addition to the sweet side, there is also a dry side, cloves, dried ginger, coffee-flavored biscuits, and cinnamon powder. Overall, the aroma is absolutely good, but not very good, and I don’t like it very much myself, but I can’t fault it, and I don’t have too many surprises.

    Drink: The mouth performance is very impactful, the explosion of grease, the explosion of burning, I haven't had such an experience for a long time. Sauce, preserved fruit, chocolate, coffee, concentrated juice, pepper, heavy flavor Sherry, one bite can satisfy all your expectations of Sherry, and the end rhyme is very long. The expressiveness is really great!

    But 95 for palate & finish average.
    Note
    The Macallan 1952 probably would have come 2nd if the nose had scored similar to the palate and finish, it would be unfair to push it any further down the pecking order and it was, along with the Glen Cawdor 1964 the only whisky I gave a 96p for the palate. It is where it is because the nose let it down and had a burnt off note I did not like but the taste was lovely.

    i see no reason to change my score, takes water well and you need water to get the best out of this as it sweetens up.

    The clear winner here was the Aberfeldy 1991, sorting out 2nd place was very difficult but on the second tasting I gave the nod to the Glendullan with the Glen Elgin a close 3rd.
    What is clear here is that there is an emphasis on peat & pepper in most of these bottlings.

    Tried with a few drops of water.
    Superb balance and taste, a massive whisky and the best Aberfeldy I have tasted.
    • Nose
      94 94
      Sweet syrup and sweet sugary coffee notes, stewed prunes, apples & dark plumbs mixed with date slices. plus dark chocolate and the faintest hints of orange liqueur.
      A refined and elegant nose, just what I like in a whisky :)
    • Taste
      94 94
      Mouth coating, thick with loads of spices and pepper with honey, milk chocolate and chocolate/caramel waffles.
      This is almost like a fine old brandy but has much more punch, the sherry really does compliment the peat/pepper and the sweetness of the stewed fruit that the nose hinted at,
      Great balance on show here
    • Finish
      93 93
      The spice & peat just keep growing, the sweetness is in the background.
      Long and lip smacking, excellent

    The nose suggested a dry sherry monster but surprisingly it was very fruity with a good sweetness on the palate - overall very good!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Lots of old and rather dry sherry wood, dates but no plums, hints of leather, spices, nutmeg, dark chocolate - very good
    • Taste
      93 93
      Very punchy, oily, liquorice, good sweetness, dried fruits, now with plums, figs, coffee, chocolate, good sherry wood (not old wood), more spices - great!
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long, warm, little more sherry wood but not drying too much, still some fruitness left

    [June, 2019] This is a worthy dram to enjoy while watching the Champions League final Liverpool vs. Tottenham, I think. Unfortunately, it is a very small sample only (1 cl) so I have to find a suitable successor after that, I am afraid...

    ...which might be very difficult because this Aberfeldy is truly great stuff. It was a perfect pick by the "Manager" or whoever selected the casks - a beautiful old school sherry maturation with an old style highland malt profile and no flaws or imbalances at all.

    And I did find a successor in my sample library that can match this excellent dram, most probably: WB id 14120...
    • Nose
      93 93
      The colour is very dark at mahogany and the nose offers an adorable old style sherry profile without any off-notes or imbalances. The Aberfeldy malt is still detectable beside the bold sherry aromas as are the very appropriate wooden notes. This is a heavy sherry maturation nose at its best!
    • Taste
      94 94
      The taste is nicely layered on all the old school sherry and malty flavours I can think of. The malt adds an interesting old style Highland profile with lots of grassy, waxy and oily impressions. The sherry is leathery, herbal, nutty with raisins, plums and orange peels. After some chewing tasty chocolatey notes pop up before the spices and herbs add a bitter layer again. Wow, what a great movie on my palate - without any moments of boredom let alone flaws...
    • Finish
      93 93
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and the dram instantly coats the whole of the mouth with a creamy texture. The finish is long and vanishes in slowly fading waves. One of them is rather malty-waxy while another one repeats the fine chocolates of the taste. Again, no distracting moments here. I did not use water on this tiny sample...

    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/
