      7,9 Delikatnie dymna, trochę niczym pole kwiatów z odrobiną wiśni, cynamonu, orzecha i wanilii.
    • Taste
      8,0 Lekko torfowa z nutami śliwki, orzechów w czekoladzie ze szczyptą cynamonu z dębowym akcentem.
    • Finish
      8,0 Wystarczająco długi, słodki z nutami cynamonu i białej czekolady z odrobiną dymu oraz wiśni.

  4. korry78 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Aberlour 15-year-old, Sherry Wood Finish, 40 vol, from Michael Jackson's Malt Whisky Companion (4th edition)

    A marriage of sherry and Bourbon. Finished in sherry.

    Colour: fuller reddish amber.

    Nose: roses, candyfloss (cotton candy), slightly buttery.

    Body: very firm. Smooth.

    Palate: rounded, tightly combined flavours. Beautiful balance of sherryish nuttiness, anise, and emphatic orange-flower.

    Finish: cookies, licorice toffee. Rootiness, spiceness, emphatic mint, late dryness.

    Score: 84

    From Whisky Magazine:

    Michael Jackson Nose: Roses, candyfloss, slightly buttery. Palate: Perfect balance of sherry and the malty, spicy, house character. The two elements are tightly combined, with the spicy flavours emerging slowly: nutmeg, aniseed and emphatic orange-flower. Finish: Liquorice toffee. Mint. Comment: Complex and sophisticated.Doug McIvor Nose: Beautifully mellow, sherryish, grassy with a little marzipan and mint toffee. Palate: Enveloping, creamy and nutty with a teasing sherry and gentle peaty twist. Peppermint prickle. Finish: Long, soothing, with a minty and spicy end. Comment: A biggish-bodied Aberlour which helps to lengthen the complex effects of the double maturation.

  5. MY MALTS scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant... Sweet, spicy, light touch of wood ... A shot of water protects him from the dryness ...

  6. bennythemonster scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Aberlour 15 years "Sherry Cask Finish" (version in the standard bottle), original bottling, 40% alc.
    Maturation: bourbon and sherry casks, finish in sherry barrel
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Nose: Fruity but also spicy, with toffee and caramel. Somewhat light honey, also nuts are to be found. A touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. The fruit I would classify as a precocious blend of forest berries. Acts rather dry.

    Palate: Light and creamy, strong salivation. You have to get used to it first. Funny mouthfeel, which turns into bitter notes. Will dry, almonds and chestnuts, malt and charred bread.

    Finish: Medium long with gooseberries, spices and a beautiful oak note.

    Conclusion: The palate was strange - the bigger the sip, the better the impression.

    74/100 points (tasted 2014, approx. 45,00 €) published on my facebook page: www.facebook.de/notesofwhisky

  7. espritdumal scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    Had a dram of this on the Dutch isle of Texel. Nice to have some hard to find whisky there. Willem & Els do a good job for whisky lovers.

    A bit high priced but you surely get what you pay for.

  8. mmaclean scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    "This single malt Speyside was matured in bourbon and sherry casks before

    being finished in Oloroso sherry wood, producing a rich 15 year old

    whisky with a deep amber hue. A classic Aberlour."
    TMOM

  9. mmaclean scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I love this Aberlour because it i much more mature than the 10 yr Sherry

    cask finish and is soooo much more enjoyable to drink. If you love

    sherry cask finish then you will enjoy this one if you can still find it

    around in the UK.

  10. Master Quill scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Score is for a bottle from 2000
