This is our 2nd single cask of Aberlour, and our first ever exclusive single cask under the First Editions label. Only 151 bottles were filled from a Refill Hogshead cask, Ref: HL14881, bottled at 58.8% after 23 years. The whisky was featured on Day 23 of KWM Whisky Advent 2018.

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: old English butterscotch, tarte tatin, pecan pie and candied nuts; the nose is big and oily with candied orange; polished Italian leather shoes, brandy soaked cherries and freshly opened cedar cigar box; is there a slight trace of peat?

Palate: sweet, fruity and coating and them boom... wow this packs some power; more old English butterscotch, tarte tatin and candied nuts but also creme brule, ginger-molasses cookies and treacle tarts; leather and tobacco are there too with building spice; as it settles down (and or the palate adjusts) more delicate tropical fruits emerge: mango and papaya; late chocolate and prominent licorice; there is also a delicate thread of smoke?!

Finish: long, sweet and very fruity; builds into a crescendo of lovely spices, tobacco, leather and tropical fruits; warming, silky and smooth.

Comment: this is a gentle beast of a whisky; the complexity is nearly off the charts including a tantalizing trace of smoke; this is a bold but layered Aberlour, very different from the sherried house style of the Distillery bottlings.

Producer Tasting Note

Nose: A full bodied, sweet nose with vanilla tablet.

Palate: Smooth and creamy on the palate with butterscotch and red berries leading to a long pleasant finish.
