It is just that time of the year when you need to make that annual Christmas wish list and we have a lovely idea for you. Or for someone else for that matter! Here is Aberlour’s Wood Essence coffret is a work of art composed of three Aberlour single malts and an original edition of the famous A’Bunadh. While most whiskies are maturing mostly in bourbon casks and than in Sherry casks for a very short period of times, Aberlour’s single malts mature in both for at least 20 years to develope very complex woodish aromas. The coffret includes the following goodies:

ABERLOUR 15 years old
First Fill* Spanish Oloroso Sherry Butt
Cask strength Non chill-filtered** 59,3% vol., cask n°7502

ABERLOUR 15 years old

ABERLOUR 17 years old

ABERLOUR A’bunadh
Selected First Fill* Spanish Oloroso Sherry Butts

I can only speak about the A’Bunadh tasting notes, but if each of the three single malts is as good as the A’Bunadh, then I got to extend my Aberlour collection asap: noze is full of cinnamon and dry grape fruit while the taste is syrupy, soft like an apricot, sweet like caramel with a dry, pear-scented finish. Sorry I sound just like an alcoholic but God this is as good as it gets!
