Whisky Reviews for White Heather 08-year-old

  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: At first slightly musty and dusty, immediately clearer sherry and also immediately the similarity to the Aberlour 8 years from the time. Opens then but quickly and shows how complex these blends at that time, especially with Sherryfass influence could be. Great old style, lots of rum grape, dried fruit, grapefruit, tobacco and a sweet powdered sugar. A certain Grainnote is certainly present, but well integrated, ripe and traversed by the sherry. Followed by roasted aromas, Demerara, toasted cereals and baked bread.

    Mouth: In principle, as in the nose, quite sweet, again with sherry, very clean, now with fudge, but also more pronounced Grain and quite intense bitterness, which brings the taste a little out of balance. Still, very high quality, with grapefruit, bitter orange, dried fruit and rum grape.

    Finish: Medium long, but also a bit sharp, with distinct bitterness.

    Conclusion: Once again a great old blend, which for its 8 years offers an extreme diversity and complexity, combined with a beautiful old style. The taste is not quite as stable as in the nose, which is simply gorgeous!
