Whisky Reviews for Aberfeldy 1995 GM

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.19 points

  1. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    On the nose: vanilla sponge cake, coffee and lemon curd hit the nose immediately, some subtle spices and fruits coming through. 

    Sweet arrival on the mid-palate with icing sugar and apple juice, more sponge cake with lemon glacé on the development with black pepper and hints of lemon juice. 

    The finish is medium to long with apples and pears, espresso and even som nutmeg. Sweet notes of honey baked apples. I need to buy more Aberfeldy from G&M. Rating interval 88-91

    Cider

    Dewar's & Sons, who own the Aberfeldy Distillery, decided to overhaul the core range of this Highlander. There is already a new 12 and 21 Year Old, but towards the holiday season at the end of the year a 30 Year Old should make its appearance as well. We keep it a little more modest with this 18 Year Old from 1995, bottled by Gordon & Macphail. It is a marriage of three casks.

    The nose is quite light on caramelized apples and a single slice of grapefruit, sprinkled with icing sugar. A truckload of sweet malt and some breakfast cereals. Some caramel (actually a lot) and some wild flowers. This is quite pleasant, in fact.

    Hmm, wonderfully mouthcoating. Very creamy and powerful. Peppery, though. Truckload of honey, some apples – cider! – and again quite a bit of grapefruit. A few sultanas and a hint of peach are the only flavours that point towards the sherry casks in my opinion.

    Some tannins appear in the long, warm finish, making it die a slightly bitter death.

    Fine Aberfeldy, nicely fruity with a sturdy palate. Great mouthfeel.

    Aberferdy 07/04 / 1995-29 / 01/2014 GM 70 cl. 55.8% vol. Refill sherry hogshead # 2488 2489 2491 JIS This is right for a small pause before the cup of the dead Aberferdy 1995! Color Surprisingly there is a sense of clearance Relieved a relieved relieved Nose Melting tolerance Range of dumpling enthusiasm Attach Discreet GM-like Hakata dram and modest Baumkuchen Body It is not a light system as Aberfeldy Taste Pale chestnuts with middleweight Mont Blanc Regular filling self-stand gasoline, tenacious and soft happy contest Slightly sticky with a lapse of time Castella feel no sticky Finish GM Sherry gets to the mascarpone whom he draws Splendid glossy and discreet modesty rugged mellow GM sherry As Aberfeldy looking for a throat there is a strange feeling https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/1fyharsa6t8r2x.html

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A fairly standard first profile refill sherry, but very wise. And then it goes a little in all directions without something concrete came out. It lets drink, ultimately, by its sweetness.
    • Nose
      Very sweet, a little erased even; you have to go and get it. A little red apple afterwards.
    • Taste
      Sweet vanilla, and the alcohol wakes up a bit.
    • Finish
      A lot of ginger is released, as well as some salt.
