A serious, old school sherried dram…
Aberlour 1964 25yo
Distilled 1964, bottled in 1989 at a majestic 25 years of age. And by the looks of it, this is a serious, old school sherried dram. And comes from an era when most Speyside distilleries used peat.
Gift boxed that come with a gold key, to keep it locked. So don’t lose it!
Looking through the notes I keep seeing the words, peat, furniture polish, soy sauce, earthiness, tobacco and dried sherried fruits.
From WhiskyBase, “Bitter fruits like plum, and red apple at first and hints of dark soy sauce
There is peat in the mix and more red apple plus some beetroot??, did I really just say that, beetroot. not sure I have ever tasted that before. Seems to get spicy on the finish, good length and satisfying”.
