Aberlour has always delivered a decent dose of Sherry goodness, and this new NAS release aims to give whisky lovers “the ideal introduction to Sherry cask-matured whiskies”. First created for the French market but now a global release, the name translates from the Gaelic as “rare cask”. Not surprisingly, it’s primarily matured in Oloroso sherry, as well as two different kinds of American oak casks. It’s also bottled at a higher than normal ABV. Expect aromas and flavours of dried fruits, cinnamon, nutmeg, some stone fruit and milk chocolate. Comes handsomely packaged with a wax seal stopper. Non chill filtered.
Other reviews… the delivery stars with those sugars well in their stride… Dates and figs represent the fruit with panache. 84.5 points
