  1. rottendon scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It should be a few days old, I suspect. The bitterness bothers me a little because it doesn't want to be integrated into an overall picture.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Quite a typical Aberfeldy, I think, unfortunately at least one of the barrels was a bit over, or it would definitely not have hurt to free the three four years earlier from the barrel. The finish spoils the overall picture for me a little. Still a nice dram!

      Light fruits and some grass make the start. After standing for a while, the grass is a little stronger and the fruits are now more like compote. With some fizzy candy and cookie dough. Warmth reduces the fruitiness, perfume is added.
    • Taste

      In the mouth it is initially very sweet, a lot of honey, before the alcohol sets in strongly and brings a subtle herbal note and a little menthol. In the second sip, significantly more herbs right from the start.

      In the end, the sweetness initially prevails again before a delicate bitterness lingers on the tongue very late. The finish itself is quite long and warms the chest for a long time. In the second sip, the bitterness sets in a little earlier and is now much more intrusive.

  8. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    CA for a sweet Aberfeldy on yellow and white fruits (apple, peach) and some tangerine, on honey, on sweet spices, a little creamy, with milk chocolate;
    return of vanilla (the stem!), and light wood, malt also in the end.

  12. raithrover scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Colour: very little noticeable colour here, perhaps dried reed at a push
    Nose: initially its almonds and peanuts. Apple peelings, a little creaminess moving into a noticeable sour cream. Pencil shavings, lime again providing that cutting citrus aspect and an aged vanilla. 
    Taste: a gentle arrival with floral notes, white chocolate and a hint of butter. That slight oiliness moves into vanilla, a charred cask, green apples and very drinkable without water.
