A wee guid Abelour

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:

Aberlour
18 Year Old 43% 70cl

Details
Producer
Pernod Ricard
Age
18 Year Old
Bottle Size
70cl
Alc. Volume
43%
Bottler
Official
Region
Speyside

Description
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

  5. Hey fantastic blog! Does running a blog such as this take a lot of work?
    I have absolutely no expertise in coding but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners
    please share. I understand this is off topic however I simply needed to ask.
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Aye Malt Mate, I don’t have enough time in the day to answer all the positive comments.

      You can go to godaddy.com and do what they tell you.

  6. Hello there, I believe your site could possibly be
    having web browser compatibility problems. Whenever I look at your
    site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic site!

  7. I have been surfing online greater than three hours lately, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners
    and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the
    web can be a lot more useful than ever before.
