Aberlour was once known as Aberlour-Glenlivet - back when Speyside distilleries tried to cash in on the cachet of the Glenlivet Distillery following legal action which prevented them calling themselves solely Glenlivet but allowed them to hyphenate the name. This now seems unnecessary as Aberlour is a phenomenal whisky in its own right as can be seen in this first batch, bottled by 'That Boutique-y Whisky Company'.
‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, bourbons, blended malts and blends from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.
The label features the world-famous 'Mash Tun' whisky bar in Aberlour. In the top window cowers a man looking terrified for his life, who and for what reason we may never know...
175 bottles of this batch were produced.
Nose: Raisins and dried apple lead to cox apples, cloudy apple juice, ground ginger and roast cocoa beans with maybe the slightest hint of smoke.
Palate: Rich, fruity and mouth-filling, with additional notes of ginger, barley and bitter dark chocolate.
Finish: The finish is substantial and well-rounded with burnt dry fruits, autumnal berries, Pink Lady apples and brandy cream flavours.
Overall: Classic Aberlour apple gives way to a deeper chocolate ginger character on the palate and finish. Full-flavoured and more-ish.

Aroma: gentle - wood, nuts, sherry tones. Lots of alcohol. With water - traces of smoke, tobacco. Dried figs, raisins. Autumn leaves. Palate: spicy, with notes of lemon and sherry. Alive. Some grapefruit and chocolate. Finish: lots of chocolate and pepper. Comments: water helped a lot. And some time was needed. Could it be cask of Pedro Ximenez? Good mix of dried fruits and chocolate. Much better than young bottlings from this distillery. On the par with their great Abunad'h.
