ABERLOUR 17 ans First Fill Sherry Hogshead 57,6%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 56655

Quantity limited to 3 bottle(s) by client.

To obtain its extremely fruity distillate, Aberlour’s second distillation last 7.5 hours. The heart of the run (new make) is then collected over two hours at between 73% and 63% ABV before being put into casks. Maturation of this bottling in a first-fill sherry hogshead is a real rarity - and only one in 10,000 casks are accorded this privilege. Tastings of this version are therefore an opportunity not to be passed up and it is worth really taking the time to appreciate a palette of flavours full of emotion and promise. Slainte.

the dense palette of aromas can be broken down into three very complex sequences. These reveal notes of candied orange, red currant jam, spice bread, beeswax, incense and exotic fruit (mango). The firm attack is honeyed (lime blossom), chocolatey and floral (iris). The texture on the mid-palate is extremely delicate (wild peach). The balanced finish reveals liquorice and rancio (blood orange). The retro-nasal olfaction returns to the exoticism of the aromatic palette (persimmon, guava).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : mahogany.
  • Nose : rich, dense. 1st sequence: blood orange, candied apricot, red currant jam, marzipan, quince jelly, dark chocolate... 2nd sequence: Russian leather, nutmeg, spice bread, emery cloth, beeswax, cardamom, coriander... 3rd sequence: incense, pine resin, cough sweets, mango, persimmon and more candied orange...
  • Palate : deep, firm. After such a concentrated sequence of aromas, the attack on the palate takes the reins with ease. Lime blossom honey, dark chocolate, heady notes of Havana cigar, iris butter, cumin and candied apricot give the wonderfully fresh palette of flavours lots of grandeur. With a particularly delicate texture, the mid-palate invites us to bite into deliciously juicy wild peach. The end of the palate offers the taste buds fresh fig and date. Outstanding.
  • Overall : long, balanced. Leading on closely from the end of the palate, the start of the finish is characterized by notes of liquorice stick, honey and lime blossom. Sherry then releases a truly sublime note of rancio (blood orange, quince jelly). In an homage to fruit, the very end of the palate and the retro-nasal olfaction are then especially exotic (mango, guava, persimmon). The empty glass is camphoric, spicy (curry, ginger) and rich (slightly burnt apricot tart).

The brand

The charm of Aberlour is summed up in the magic of its setting, chosen long before distilleries were legal and probably going back to when only monks knew the secrets of distilling; in other words, to where Scotch whisky originated. Indeed, those long before us meticulously set up their stills here in order to take advantage of the spring water, filtered through the granite mass of Ben Rinnes. They then made the large Aberlour stills to capture the richest vapours of the distillate. It is also the heart of Speyside, where the rivers Spey and Lour converge; more than 1,400 years of rich history, illustrated beautifully by the mysterious stones of Fairy Hill. Find out more
