Aberlour-15 yo Sherry Wood Finish Score 8.5
Spicy and sweet--wonderfully complex and layered--one right after the other. Definite floweriness (roses?) and citrus.Many flavors are well mingled--oranges with spiciness, creamy body and slightly oily on the tongue. Medium in length--spicy and tingling with the citrus remaining.
Overall--Surprisingly it is not overpoweringly sherried. Predominantly flowery and orangey. Very nice whisky and just short of greatness.
Matured first in bourbon and sherry casks, then finished in selected sherry butts, this is an elegant single malt of enormous charm.
A confection of marzipan and the alluring fragrance of geraniums, with hints of sherry and orange blossom, and a light smokiness.
Soft and spicy with a lightly toasted oaky flavour, overlaid with a sherry-sweet nuttiness mixed with ripe apricots and toffee that shamelessly seduces the palate.
