Nose
Warm, sweet, nutty, appetising.
Palate
Very full flavours, beautifully rounded. Rich maltiness; orange fruit; slight smokiness; but no astringency; perfectly balanced.
Finish
Fresh, sweetish, spiciness and smoky dryness. Both restrained. Perfect balance.
Comment
All the classic flavour elements. With its character "freshness", Aberfeldy often shines at younger ages. Here it excels in middle age.

Dave Broom

82
Nose
Rich and soft with an oily feel. Raisin, dried fruits, turf, oak, malt, heavily perfumed roses, orange peel. Good balance.
Palate
Gentle, oily and soft. Macadamia nut, toffee.
Finish
Dies a little. Dried fruits.
Comment
A gentle dram from a strangely forgotten distillery. More like this please.
