Aberlour 15 Year Old Select Cask Reserve
70cl, 43% abv
Aberlour 15 Year Old Select Cask Reserve was initially only sent to mainland Europe. However, for a few years now this fine expression has been available in the U.K. It is matured in a mixture of sherry and bourbon casks which impart a fruitiness to the spirit. Terrific.
Colour: Deep gold.
Nose: Big sherry notes, raisins and sweet honey.
Palate: Strong on vanilla, honey, fat raisins. Thereafter, almonds and dried orange peel.
Finish: Lingering; dries with a fruit zest.
