  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad whisky at all. But after some of the great batches that have been released in the past, I found batch 50 already a bit disappointing and this one is even less impressive. Probably the least interesting batch I've had so far (out of 15 batches), I'd suggest to get another one.
    • Nose
      Spices like nutmeg and curry, but not really in-your-face actually. Rather shy. Rhubarb. I find myself searching for the red fruits and fudge, but they aren't there. When adding water, quite some orange comes up, as well as a little raspberry.
    • Taste
      Very peppery. Now also some cranberry and caramel. Sweet & sour sauce. And just like in the previous batch, the alcohol is quite prominent. Water adds orange to the taste as well, but it quickly falls apart.
    • Finish
      Pepper, goji berry, orange and mocha..

    Aberlour's tasting note:

    Colour: Deep rich amber.

    Nose: Terrific aromas of allspice, praline and spiced orange, in harmony with deep notes of Oloroso Sherry.

    Palate: Orange, black cherries, dried fruit and ginger, spiked with dark bitter chocolate and enriched with lingering Sherry and oak. Superlatively full bodied and creamy.

    Finish: Robust and long lasting, with bittersweet notes of exotic spices, dark chocolate and oak.
