  3. Tabrulavubeg scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Some dry pineapple and maybe some milk chocolate, also some cardboard.
    Not very pleasant nor complex, and certainly far from the fantastic 1991 vintage.
    The stuff that blends are made of, I assume.

  4. Willie JJ scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This is a nice dram. I have a lot of time for Aberfeldy and there's nothing to be ashamed of here. 
    • Nose
      Puff candy, honey and oak shavings. A little mustiness and some light floral notes. A hint of fabric softener and gooseberries. Really very pleasant. 
    • Taste
      Tinned peaches, custard and cream. Heaps of cinnamon, sprinkled with pepper and sawdust.
    • Finish
      Initially drying, but then the oak kicks in in a chewed pencil kind of way, followed by some heat and gentle pepper. Plenty of length and the warmth takes a while to fade.
