2000 Aberlour 13 Year Old K&L Exclusive "Exclusive Malts" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1141456

After the success of last year's 21 year Aberlour, we weren't planning to buy a repeat from this lovely little distillery. That all changed in David Stirk's little warehouse south of Glasgow. This lovely hogshead was just singing to us. Its rich and warming style will delight any lover of Speyside whisky. On the nose we get powerful toasted grains, biscuits, honey (some exotic type, tilleul?) and pears. The palate is super soft and rich, which more of the oak spice evident than on the nose, but the similar blend of sweet floral and grainy flavors. On the end those spices come back with a heavy dose of that biscuit (I'm thinking Walkers). Maybe this is not the most exciting whisky on paper, but it will certainly be several peoples' favorite this year. (David Othenin-Girard, K&L Spirits Buyer)

Aberlour I am always excited to wrap myself up in the warm rich blanket of sherry goodness that Aberlour seems to always provide. Rich and supple this is everything we have come to expect from the great Speyside producer. The nose is fully of baked honey cake with raisins, toasted walnuts and sweet grains. The palate follows suit with shortbread and vanilla, a hint of nutmeg floats in the back ground adding depth. This is everything an Aberlour drinking wants, but with more warmth and palate weight.

This single malt is very pretty with soft inviting aromas and nice soft round flavors. It should please most whiskey drinkers who do not want any smokey aspects to their drink. A splash of water will help open up the Aberlour 13 year old.
