Aberlour a’bunadh (Batch 53)

The nose on this version of the popular cask strength (59.7%) Aberlour has lots of rich, dark fruits and maltiness.  The Oloroso sherry casks used to mature this expression also say hello!  The taste (neat) is also very rich and drying with dark chocolate, cinnamon, ginger cake and prunes.  The Oloroso casks are now shouting out hello!  The finish is rather hot and dry, heavily spirit rather than wood influenced, which is not a surprise at this ABV.  With a little water it becomes sweeter with some more sharp citrus notes and more oak bite.
