ABERLOUR 13 ans First Fill Sherry Butt LMDW Cellar Book Of 58%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 53560
Using neither a compass nor a ruler, this Aberlour has successfully squared a circle. That is to say, it has successfully risen to the challenge set – to be completely under the spell of the sherry without this ever overburdening the palette of flavours and aromas. To achieve this feat, it draws on a spirit that boasts rare minerality. The way the palate matches the nose and the finish naturally presents its arguments, are in this respect enlightening.
Profile: the distinguished initial nose is slightly tarry and very mineral. It develops into incense, heady florals and citrus fruit. The palate is like chewing on a liquorice stick. With generous flavours, it reveals chocolate, rancio and herbaceous notes. The very natural finish is even more concentrated. Characterised by coffee and tobacco, it is extremely fruity (bramble, blackcurrant).
