Whisky Reviews for Aberfeldy 1999 Wy

- Here I find the finish most interesting. From the typical distilling character of Aberfeldy is hardly anything to feel, at most in the nose is something to recognize. Nose and finish are really good but a bit flat in the taste. But Wemyss does not disappoint as usual.
Fruitiness. Lemon and orange. Somehow also a certain amount of carbonic acid. A little reserved. Also a little bit of vanilla, marshmallows and toffee. Bright, yellow fruits.
mild, of the 46% is hardly noticeable. Toffee and a certain creaminess lays on the tongue.
Hmmm interesting. Medium long, but it retains a creaminess. As if your mouth full of marshmallows was just not so sweet. A bit harsh and vinous. So the toffee description at Wemyss is quite good.
- Wemyss gives the in-house bottlings - in addition to the usual information such as origin, age, barrel type - in addition a name derived from the "Main Character". At Wemyss, the barrels are selected by a Charlie MacLean, who gave this malt the name "Toffee Tuile". It is a bakery product whose appearance is arcuate and thus reminiscent of "flowing roof tiles". They are usually made from almonds.
Typical bourbon nose a la custard, caramelized fruit, honey, cake batter / bisquit / shortbred, roasted marshmellows, celeriac (malt / molasses) and exotic fruits (banana, melon, peach, apricot, pineapple). Some coconut. Spicy oak and well-integrated alcohol hold the whole thing together. Fresh, velvety, well balanced, spicy. 44 points
Medium bodied, oily consistency. Creamy-oily texture with a dry-dry onset with predominantly blossom honey, vanilla kipferl, soft toffee / fudge. The oak is recognizable, but not overpowering. Spicy and minty in the middle part. 44 points
Long, harsh as a Riesling and clearly fading.
- Nose: Lovely wood going on here. Some coconut. Spices and butterscotch. Toffee if you will… This is a very fragrant nose - with caramelized biscuits. Sweet dough. I love it!
Palate: Sweet and lovely with fresh dough. Green apples, lots of spices. Brown sugar. Toasted oak and golden syrup. The toffee is back as well as old school butterscotch candy. Oaky and brilliant.
Finish: Malt. Sweet dough and hints of honey butterscotch and toasted oak.
This may not sound like something really groundbreaking, but somehow, everything just connects. It’s delicious. It’s a great dram, and I find that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. A delicious dram, get one if you cant. It’s still available online (MOM stocks it for £80 which isn’t so bad).
- Another Aberfeldy bottled by Wemyss Malt, this time nicknamed 'Tuffee Tuile'.
