Gavin D. Smith

85
Nose
Initially slightly savoury, full and spicy, sweet sherry, tangerines and soft oak.
Palate
Smooth, spicy and nutty, honey, malt, more sherry and cocoa powder.
Finish
Long, with slightly bitter oranges, liquorice sticks and dark chocolate.
Comment
Aberfeldy handles sherry and age well. A fine example, but a shame this is bottled at 40% ABV.

Joe Bates

84
Nose
Light and wispy aromas of honey, ginger and limoncello liqueur.
Palate
Sweet honey predominates while in the background lurks plenty of citrus, Christmas-time clementines, along with a hint of warming cinnamon.
Finish
Sweet, medium length finish.
Comment
A proper crowd pleaser. What it lacks in complexity it makes up for it with its affability. Very easy to drink.
