Aberlour 1989, AD Rattray Cask Collection. 51.1%

An old and very small sample bottle brought back from a half-remembered Speyside shop tasting 2 years ago. Why now? Just because.

Lovely nose, light citrus and pear drops. Honey, apple and burnt caramel custard (as I prefer to call creme brûlée) on the palate. Gone too quickly to really appreciate the finish, but it seemed to be building up to something nice.

Rather good, and interesting to try a non-sherried Aberlour.
