Nose: Fresh and grassy at first, but soon it unveils a depth of honey'd barley, rye bread and a waft of woodsmoke. Raisins and sultanas decorate the periphery.
Palate: Creamy on the palate, with further notes of sultana and apple chips. Malt loaf smothered in butter. Cinnamon and black pepper. Hints of pecan appear if you leave it in the glass for a couple minutes.
Finish: Lasting notes of lemon meringue pie and orange segments.
Overall: Batch 3 shows off a lighter, creamier side to Aberlour from previous Boutique-y bottlings, which tended to lean towards their Sherried style.
