Aberlour 11 yo (2000/2012), Adelphi, 55,8 %

Review #200
This is from cask #3070, which was a refill sherry cask. Only 284 bottles were made. It might be a refill cask, but regarding to the nose, it could just as well have been a first fill cask they had used. Lots of creamy sherry notes but still light with some fresh fruits in the background.

The taste is dry. Not much fresh fruit here, but lots of the classic sherry influence. Raisins, plums and some chocolate and nuts. The sweetness arrives in the finish. Fruity sweetness with some honey notes.

It seems a bit older than 11 years. Not much, but a bit. The balance and complexity is very good considering it only had 11 years to connect with the cask. I will rate this 87/100 (22/21/22/22).
