Glenfiddich 21 years old

Glenfiddich 21 years old, 40% abv

An amazing dram. Rich sweet compote with cream cookies dominate the aromas - sensational. The palate is treated to a lovely light apple crisp sensation with hints of spices. A wee hint of rum on the finish. Great, but a bit pricey.

This is a great dram. The aromas resemble a soft rich fruit compote still cooking on the stovetop. There are spice notes on the palate with a follow through of lovely stewed fruit undertones. Very well balanced with a medium long finish.

Aberlour a'bunadh Batch No 28

Aberlour a'bunadh Batch No 28, 59.7% abv

Deep amber in colour - from the Oloroso sherry casks, no doubt. This is a powerful dram at 59.7% abv; need to approach it slowly. A rich waft of spices greets you with waves of toffee and a hint of mint on the nose. The palate is treated to rose petals, spices, particularly cardamom. The mouthfeel is rich, heavy with a slight tang to it. Hints of wintergreen were found on a long finish.
