Whisky Reviews for Aberlour A'bunadh batch #15
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.47 points
- Everything is swept away by a mighty hurricane ... the hegemony of oak in taste and aftertaste, obvious imbalance, sometimes you get the impression that you chew oak boards, seize oak bark and drink with oak juice, not the most successful batch.
Fresh, wet, lacquer, carpentry workshop, resin, dried fruits - raisins, dried apricots, dried sweet grapes, creamy notes, melted milk, toffee, wine tones through them from the background.
Pepper-oak, lemon peels, oak too much, creamy notes, boiled condensed milk;
Pepper-oak, in the background - tropical fruits, red oranges, compote of sourish berries, oak dominates, bitter and knits, scores other components, it's too much.
- What a delightfully sweet dram
Appearance: The bottle has a dark red amber hue, while a single serving is more of a ruddy golden brown.
Water: I added no water. I found that the smallest amount water changed the balance of this whiskyand actually made the alcohol more noticeable, and turned it completely dry.
Nose: Because of the alcohol it takes a while to open up and calm down but if you are patient and hold back it will come to you. I first got hit with a big rose blackberry sherry perfume. Then it had this wonderfully complex amalgamation of flavors: candied orange peel, with dried cranberries, raspberries, a little apricot, all melded together with a sweet honey note. Wonderfully crafted and complex. Spiked Fruitcake. Had touches of cinnamon, cocoa powder, and a smidgeon of oak pepper.
Taste: The arrival was a sweet sherry that is married well with the creamy buttery honeyd malt. The development is where all the fruity flavors above mentioned manifested itself, then it finishes with a sublime malty finish, slightly phenolic and a glancing peck of cinnamon, and rose.
Mouthfeel: oily rich and dense Overeview: wonderfully complex and supremely well balanced my favorite right next to MACALLAN 10 YEAR Cask strength, LAPHROAIG 10 YO Cask strength batches 1,2,3,4 , The Quarter Cask,Port Askaig 30 YO, and ARDBEG UIGEADIAL,
8,8 Winna, delikatnie wiśniowa z nutami dębu, wanilii oraz słodu jęczmiennego.
8,7 Lekko tytoniowa z nutami wiśni oraz jabłka ze szczyptą białej czekolady oraz soli morskiej.
8,8 Długi, przyjemnie rozgrzewający z nutami miodu i wiśni z odrobiną goździka oraz czerwonej papryki.
- Someone Pleade have a look, I thought this was bottled in 2006
- Whisky in his perfection, strong, a bit rough, beautiful sherry, indeed a gentlemans dram. .
- Love Aberlour for its power and strength also its constant consistency.
Nose is like peach compote, or dried fruits
Is very strong and begins to mellow after about 7 seconds or so. nuts, citrus fruits, sherry
long and strong like most Aberlour's
- The nose is nice and nutty, the taste is classic and typical, body well balanced, finish is amazing. What you expect from Aberlour, consistency. Priced as usual and display still the box.
- This was an interesting find, I was working at a job installing the kitchen cabinets and at the ed of the day the owner offered me a splash of scotch. Of course I said sure, and he showed me the collection of about 4 bottles worth. Immediately I identified the Aberlour and noticed it was almost full, and said lets try this one. He then went on to say it was to strong for him and I bartered with him for it. It turned out to be a nice trade off and tasty evening. Keep your eyes open, you`ll never no what you`ll find.
