Aberlour 1964 25 Year Old

This is a bottle of Abelour 1964, bottled in 1989, 75cl, 43% ABV in original wooden box.

It has a whopping 92 points from Whisky Fun too!


Aberlour 25 yo 1964/1989 (43%, OB, 75cl) Five stars
There once was a very good cube-shaped 1964 that was only 8 yo, but I believe this 25 yo has got an even higher reputation. Colour: deep gold. Nose: starts a little steely, but that may be OBE in action, and gets then pretty leafy and dry, you would almost believe you’re nosing some old amontillado. That would involve the usual walnuts, some tobacco, a wee yeasty/umami-y side, and then many many earthy and mossy aromas, moss as such, wee mushrooms, Cuban cigars, artisanal chocolate, some kind of mentholated miso or something, truffled mashed potatoes… It is a fantastic nose, rather reminiscent of early Macallan 18s, just drier (1960-1970s vintages). Excuse me, but wow! We might have to call the Anti-Maltoporn Brigade, let’s have their number ready…  Mouth: bingo, please call them. Stunning mead and tobacco, chestnut honey, amontillado again, walnuts aplenty, old Sauternes that’s digested its sugars, touches of salt and smoke (old Mac indeed), miso soup, beef soup, citrons… The saltines is really impressive. Did you call them yet? Finish: long, superb, dry, on walnuts, chestnut honey, tobacco and miso. Only the aftertaste is a notch weaker, probably because of the rather low strength. Comments: old school Scotch malt whisky from the legendary years of Scotch malt whisky. Wonderfully complex, dry and tertiary.
SGP:362 - 92 points.

Condition

Aberlour

Aberlour has been one of the top ten biggest selling single malts in the world for several decades now, certainly since it was bought by Pernod Ricard nearly five decades ago. The current style of heavily sherried Aberlour started in the 2000’s with the launch of the Aberlour A’bunadh series, after a bottle of cask strength whisky was found behind an old wall at the distillery during renovations.
