Aberfeldy 12

The nose is very perfumed, orange zest, incense and is slightly smoky. Sherry touches are detected.
The whisky is light and pleasant in the mouth, oily and fruity; A tangerine taste. The tastes are very fresh and perfumed.
The finish is long and fruity.

Personal Comment
The distillery produces mainly for blends (Dewar). It single malt (at least this 12 y.o. version) is rather disappointing. The impression is that this whisky is rough and its fragrances not very refined.
56/100
The second tasting did not take away the feeling of a rough whisky, however the citrus fruit aromas and the sherry hints, combined with a relatively long and slightly smoky finish made me change my first quotation, which seems to be difficult to explain. Probably the mood at the tasting time... This whisky is rather good.
74/100
The nose is marked by slightly bitter smells and by a touch of smoke. In the palate, the taste is rather pleasant, marked by the malt and a discrete touch of citrus fruits. The whisky remains relatively austere, but not unpleasant. A clear oily impression... This is strange, because during the first tasting, the impression left by this whisky was roughness and dryness... This is probably due to aeration. The finish is rather short and leaves some malted and citrus memories, but rather flat however.
74/100
A straight away nose with discrete malty hints and some vague citrus zest smells.
In the palate, a rather flat smooth whisky. Malt and a touch of not so easy to describe bitterness, between orange zest and walnut.
Bitter but rather long finish.
A whisky without character, which is not unpleasant but far from being a must in a whisky collection.

Color: Gold
A lovely freshness, a mixture of cut grass and ripe fruit, is the first impression of this discrete nose takes some time to open. Some discomfort due to tingling sensation disappears fortunately quite quickly and makes room for a subtle blend of ripe fruit and bitter sweet cashews. The nose remains discreet and is not notoriously complex.
The first palate is quite disconcerting. A mix of green fruit, acid notes quickly followed by a gentle bitterness before returning to the first notes of fruit. Then a slow evolution towards discrete notes of cocoa.
The finish length is medium . It is dominated by notes of cocoa.
This tasting was not done blindly.
This bottle does not leave a lasting impression, but it remains the best Aberfeldy I had the opportunity to drink.

aberfeldy 10 Provenance
Colour: white wine
Nose: honey, spring flowers and sweet spices. The body is light to medium, with a sensation of fruits and spices in the mouth.
The finish, even if it is a bit short, is sweet and well structured.
Personal Comment

The nose does not detect malt or pepper as with Edradour, another distillery of this region. Slight discrete hints of spice characterise the smell of this rather dry whisky, though pleasant to drink. This Provenance version gave me a quite better feeling than the official 12 y.o. one, although the finish is too short and the whole does not have much depth. But it is a good bottling, which has its place in each good whisky collection.

A rather discrete and perfumed nose, with honeyish sweetness. In the palate, the same impression of sweetness with a malted and slightly spicy background. A relatively short finish, but not unpleasant. This whisky is too sweet for me, but I can imagine other people really can like it.
74/100
The nose is slightly spicy and develops rather smooth fruity hints, ripe apple, melon. In the palate, smoothness dominates too, honey and fruits on a barley background with discrete spicy touches. Finish is quite pleasant, however too short.
79/100
Quite a nice floral nose, nicely perfumed with fresh fruity hints.
The palate confirms the fruity smoothness announced by the nose wit an addition of some honeyish fragrances, but no complexity and no surprise. Quite pleasant however, even if it's too smooth according to my own standards.
The relatively long finish contrasts a bit with the mouth as smoothness makes clearly room to alcohol which seems to have a great deal of it's aromatic richness.

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
App.: Gold (Colour adjusted)
Nose.: Sweet and round with strong floral hints. Sweet porridge or semolina pudding with sweetened condensed milk. Forest honey and very present cut grass, hey, you could have to sneeze if you have a tendency to hay fever...
Taste.: As expected, the palate is also very sweet with less strong floral notes. Very soft and gentle without any sign of smoke but also unfortunately a lack of complexity or deepness. Very lowlandish and friendly.
Finish: Rather long and pleasureful, here some beautiful impressions enter: The floral notes combined with the honey blend to a beautiful beautifully balanced finale with some spicy and easy bitter injections.
This is a dram for those who like it mellow, but I guess some more percents of alcohol could do! the bottling some favours.
