Whisky Reviews for Aberfeldy 1998 IM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.74 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty port whisky, round and pleasing, maybe a little too zuu complacent, a bit more kick would have been perfect. Is just a cozy Aberfeldy and no Edradour or Springbank. ;-)
    60-70 are just so acceptable.
    • Nose
      typical port nose - sweet and fruity, dried fruit, strawberry and raspberry jam, gentle spice, cinnamon, sandalwood
    • Taste
      Dried fruit, also jam-like (blackberry / cherry?), Dark chocolate, Sachertorte, round, full-bodied, somewhat velvety in the mouthfeel
    • Finish
      long, gentle pungency, dark chocolate, some camillan / cough drops

  2. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    My blind-tasting findings: good port cask finish single malt, age 12 to 15 years with 43% to 46%, could be a Glenmorangie.

  4. elzAberino scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    Blindtasting: Tap Highlands, 12 years, 43-46%, Port / Sherry Barrel. Very good stuff that does not stun me like that.
    • Nose
      Presenter alcohol, eucalyptus fresh, sherry, dark fruits, vanilla, even slightly salty?
    • Taste
      Taste: Light sea breeze, full & aromatic, spicy, dark fruit, raisins with oak.
    • Finish
      Again dark fruits, now light bitterness, still spicy, medium with marzipan and oak.
