First Impression: Aberlour 15 Years Old Double Cask Matured

[40.0%・15 Years Old・Bottled Circa 2017・Official Bottling・General Release]

Nose:

Poached pears and apple sauce, there is a toffee presence with some Italian herbs and perhaps a faint hint of smoke.

Palate & Finish:

Vanilla sauce and liquor soaked oranges; sultana and nutmeg with distant traces of milk chocolate coming up, bringing along a touch of red cherries as well..  all existing harmoniously.

Soft finish with a wee hint of sultana remaining.

Thoughts:

Certainly a quality Speysider that should prove to be quite competitive amongst its travel exclusive peers, rounded and generally pleasing without being too exhilarating but everything is in place.
