2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points

  1. Alex scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    big whisky - deep, rich and rounded. Very tasty interplay of malty honeyed sweetness with the yellow fruitiness of the Marsala cask. Big balance, doesn't need water. Excellent. Sampled it at Whisky L Shanghai 2017

    Nose: salted plum, dry apricot, orange zest, beautiful oily feeling, heather honey, soapy a d waxy, chocolate, fruit candy, mix berries, brewed pear

    Taste: fresh orange, lemon tart, fruit cake, creme brule, salted plum, chocolate, hazelnuts, mix berries, hint of honey, elegant waxy, high concentration, black berry jam

    Body: Medium body, very sooth, elegant, easy to drink

    Finish: very long, round, a little bit tannin but comfortable, leave spicies in the last

    personally this is the very best Aberfeldy I ever have. And beautifully hand-crafted labeling, very much like John Dewars Malts style.  And the price is good as well. 

    It is more likely the same taste as Macallan 30YO old version, but has more vivid feeling in the end, more complex. it is amazing dram to replace Macallan 30YO cause the price is extreme, and difficult to get.
