(This thread prompted by the Whisky Galore & Aberlour thread)
Has anyone else ever pondered just how varied the range of flavours are in the different Aberlour bottlings?
The Aberlour 10yo tastes so different to the 15yo, which in turn tastes so different to the A'Bunadh, and they all taste different to the NAS cask strength bottling.
I get a similar nose of apples in the 10yo & cask strength, but I'm impressed at how one distillery can display such a varied range of flavours & aromas in its different expressions.
(By comparison, ask yourself if there is such a wide variety in, say, the different age Macallans - i.e. 10, 12, & 18, or the different Glenfarclases, or even the different Glenfiddichs - the NAS Special Reserve, the 12yo Special reserve, the 15yo cask strength, and even - to a degree - the Solera Reserve)
Food - I mean drink - for thought.
