Halo Single Malt Mates,
Back in the day I owned an Aberlour A’Bunadh. It is whisky distilled and matured at cask strength in Spanish Oloroso sherry and non chill filtered. Pure whisky to Aficionados like your humble Scotch Spirit Master.
Anyway, Aberlour has come out with its oldest expression which had been matured in Oloroso Sherry Casks. I love that.
Here is the whisky:
18 Year Old 43% 70cl
18 Year Old
The oldest in the delightful Aberlour core range, this is a fitting finale. Lots of Oloroso sherry character, lots of choccy-coated raisin flavours, and lots of after dinner drinking pleasure to be had
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Rich and complex, with notes of toffee and butterscotch combining with ripe peach and bitter orange.
Palate: Superbly structured, with initial notes of soft apricot and cream, offset by developing flavours of old leather and oak, with a touch of honey. The finish is very long and well balanced, progressing from Crème Brulè to a gentle oak flourish.
I think that this would be a good addition to your collection. I am thinking about buying it myself..
May you aye ha’e a copper to spare,
And a pinch o’ guide sneeshin’ to share!
And what is the best thing o’ a’ –
A freend at yet beck an’ yer ca’.
I would like to make a toast to lying, stealing, cheating and drinking. If you’re going to lie, lie for a friend. If you’re going to steal, steal a heart. If your going to cheat, cheat death. And if you’re going to drink, drink with me.
Slàinte mhòr agus a h-uile beannachd duibh.
Great health and every good blessing to you
Your Scotch Spirit Master
