ABERLOUR ABUNAD’H batch 49
60,3%ABV – Cask strength
100% ex-Sherry Casks
COLOR : dark amber.
NOSE : dry fruits (abricots, figs, grapes, prune), red fruits marmelade, caramel – toffee, roasted aromas, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, nuts and hazelnuts, nougat, orange chocolate, fresh tobacco, ester, refined oak.
PALATE: powerful, intense but also sirupy…bitter orange, dates, coffee, cocao. It is very spicy (hot chilli pepper, muscado, cinnamon, candied ginger, mint, cardamon) and becomes finaly more onctuous with sugar, dark chocolate and nuts flavors.
FINAL : silky and very long with sweet bitterness, orange, dark chocolate, almonds, licorice and oak.
COMMENTS : for me, it’s an all time favorite…I love its roundness, richness and complexity as I’m a huge fan of whisky maturated in Sherry casks. This Aberlour offers a great and intense pack of flavors. This natural expression is easily available and sell at a great price. If you like sherried whisky or fruity and spicy dram, you should absolutely try this amazing sherrybomb!
