Aberlour 15 Sherry Wood Finish

Postby OKDiver1 » Tue Mar 25, 2008 5:22 pm

This morning I went to the store and saw a lone bottle of Aberlour 15 Sherry Wood Finish, which I bought immediately (less than $50). From what I remembered, this bottling had been discontinued or, at least, had become very hard to find.
Can anybody confirm, or infirm?
I'd be interested in tasting notes as well.
Thank you.

If you are talking about the tall bottle in a tube, then you are correct they have been replaced by the 12 DW and the 16 DW (stubby bottles). I think that there is a new 15yo (stubby) out there, but not for the US market.

I remember the 15yo to be a very good beverage. Nothing was over the top, not too smooth, not too much sherry. A nice balance all the way around. I don't have detailed notes to share off hand.

Thank you.
Yes, it is the "regular" tall bottle, the same as the 10yo, that I found. Did not come in a tube, but that's the one.
Thanks again.

I must have been thinking of the 12yo not the 15....
