1990 Aberlour 21 Year Old K&L Exclusive "Exclusive Malts" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1109517

For all the esoteric, exotic, and out-of-the-ordinary casks of single malt we plan on bringing back from Scotland this year, we feel the need to balance them out with some sure-fire, no-nonsense whiskies that offer old-fashioned quality for a fantastic price. The Exclusive Malt warehouse outside of Glasgow offered us so many fantastic expressions at great prices that we couldn't help but take every one of them. Perhaps the most impressive of the bunch was a 21 year old cask of Aberlour, one of the most popular Speyside distilleries around. With the recent upsurge in sales for their 12 year old and A'Bunadh single malts, we knew the time was right for an older expression that built upon the foundation of flavor our customers love so much: sweet barley, rich vanilla, hints of creme brulee and burnt sugar, with a rich and opulent finish. At 51.1%, the whisky is easily drinkable at the bottled cask strength, but a drop of water really opens up the palate to more complexity. The less-than-10 year old cask strength A'Bunadh sells for $60 on the shelf, but for an extra $30 we're offering more than a decade of extra barrel aging and far less sherry-dominated character. This is the bottle you buy for someone who likes Scotch whisky of any kind. It's very, very tasty and just about everyone can get behind its classically-styled flavor. A ripe deal from a fantastic new bottler. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits buyer)

Aberlour and sherry work so well together. Those who love the A'Bunadh will want to take a look at this older expression from this beautiful Speyside distillery. Here we have the most striking example of sipping your sweets, it literally has a nose like taffy store. All this sweet caramel, butterscotchiness, does well on the palate too. Aberlour's classic pomace quality leaves you thinking Caramel dipped apples? This is then followed by a light spiciness to give it balance. While this bad boy is forward and powerful, it's by no means cloying or overly sweet, perhaps the finish goes a bit more nutty than sweet which helps. Just a silly price for this great mature Aberlour.
