Old oak
Nose

Un nez sur le sherry et très floral , des effluves de cuir et de cerises noires.

Taste

En bouche ce sont les épices et le sherry, et des fleurs.

Finish


La finale est longue très agréable, un sherry très parfumé!

Nez : sherry boisé intense mais doux. Des notes de soufre. Plus tard, vanille, bourbon, quelques fleurs. En bouche, on retrouve l'intensité du sherry,, mais une légère morsure alcoolique, avec beaucoup d'épices et toujours su soufre. Finale sur…le sherry et de le soufre. Avec quelques gouttes d'eau, le soufre disparaît pour donner quelque chose de très profond je j'appellerais du DARK SHERRY. Je viens de l'inventer, OK ? (Merde, ça existe) Finale très longue. Le meilleur Aberlour que j'ai goûté, de loin. 

Enthousiasme 4/5

Aberlour 14 yo (48%, OB, for The Whisky Lodge Lyon, first fill sherry, cask #3455-WL, 2015) Four stars and a half This one just bottled for an excellent whisky shop in Lyons/Lyon, which you just shouldn’t miss when in the former Capital of the Gauls! They also have a very nice selection of rums (more about those later). Colour: gold. Nose: we’re well in the same family, with this typical leafy leather, but it’s also got more fragrant notes, such as flowers (dandelions, peonies) and heather honey ala old HP. Also lovely hints of turpentine and linseed oil, then the expected raisins and plums, plus walnuts. ‘Light’ first fill sherry. Mouth: beats the others fair and square, but that was to be expected. Starts with some peppery malt, goes on with bitter oranges and ‘soft’ raisins, and keeps unfolding with small earthy touches, mushrooms, a touch of ginseng, a little gentian… That’s all very nice. Finish: long, and zestier, more reminiscent of some indie unsherried Aberlours. Oranges, pink grapefruits, white pepper, perhaps one bay leaf. The spicy leather is back in the aftertaste. Comments: it’s rather big, and very Aberlour. Very well selected, but I guess it’s not going to be easy to get this baby outside France. SGP:451 - 88 points.
