Aberlour 16yr First Fill Sherry Cask (The Whisky Exchange Exclusive) Review

Aberlour 16yr First Fill Sherry Cask (The Whisky Exchange Exclusive)  A first fill sherry cask Aberlour exclusive to The Whisky Exchange, that just sounds like a great idea to me.

Despite my normal issues with sherries drams I've never had a bad sherried Aberlour and knowing my friends from The Whisky Exchange are very good at picking whisky so this dram has me quite excited.

Yum... Do I really need to say more? A real fabulous dram and full,of juicy flavours, this is a dram for any sherry bomb fan, cracking stuff

Available to purchase exclusively from The Whisky Exchange online.

Thanks to The Whisky Exchange for the official sample

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

A lovely big whiff of juicy dark fruits, sweet juicy figs and light plums, then newly polished mahogany furniture, sweet Demerara sugar and just out the oven fruit loaf, hints of wax and leather in the background also.

Palate

Spicy and slightly chalky dark fruits, leathery and waxy, this is a great combination of sweet figs and plums and prunes, with sultanas and spices including cinnamon, and then light fruit loaf and waxy fruit peels.

Finish

Sweeter than I expected, but long lasting and with a waxy spiced fruit skin note
