Whisky Reviews for Aberlour 1992 BR

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.43 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Quite a good whisky, light and nicely balanced. Obvious ex-bourbon cask maturation. Very sweet with nice citrus and apple notes, which altogether make it a wonderful dessert dram. However, for this age one can expect more complexity.
    • Nose
      Fresh, creamy, green apples, vanilla, citrus, a bit grassy, light honey notes, hint of sour oak. Water brings fresh grass and honey as well as flower and orange notes
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy (ginger), slightly oaky, hint of malt, lemon pie, toffee, raw almonds, Granny Smith apples
    • Finish
      Medium-long, spicy, malty, slightly bitter, walnut shell

    Nose: overripe fruit, apples and a bit of pear. It's like these fruit are starting to produce alcohol by itself. The alcohol is present and asks for some water.

    Getting fresher and nicer over time, giving some spices and a hint of vanilla from the oak

    Taste: Soft arrival, dispite the abv. sweet fruit. full and oily. Then a bit of oak comes in, wich brings some nice spicyness also.

    Very satisfying.

    Finish: fairly long, Mostly oak, but some sweets keep it from getting dry or to bitter. Turns a little bit sour at the end.

    Overall: Great balance. The different subtle flavour balance each other out so you can enjoy them without one taking the lead and becomes to overpowering.

    EDIT: 

    This bottle goes bad rather quickly. The whisky turns harsh. Below 80pnt now...
