Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Billy A

Nose: Buttery cinnamon toast, concentrated raisin in the background, astringent woody touches, glacé cherry, barrel char.

Palate: Big sweet butter hit, with maple syrup, brown sugar, plump raisins, nutmeg, milk chocolate and more of the char from the nose.

Finish: Medium length, with chocolate, raisins and more char.

Comment: A sweet dram with good levels of sherry spice and richness, although not overly heavy. There is a touch of welcome bitter char that reigns the dram in before it can become too sweet, providing excellent balance.

This is a great classic Speyside and represents fantastic value. It is a fine blend of sweet malt, spices,fruit and sherry. It is produced to a high consistent standard. Yes, the alcohol may be slightly detached and is more integrated in 16 year version, but this is a minor flaw. I will be buying more, as it is the best of the popular priced Speysides around.

When you sip Aberlour you know it's going to be dependable and consistent and this 12 year old doesn't dissapoint. Wonderful sherry notes with a definite chocolate hit. Don't bother with water, just fine as it comes. Brilliant dram for a winters night, personally this is in my top 3 Speysiders.

"Nose" (undiluted): Cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon sticks. "Palate" (undiluted): Initial spiced dark currants, cherry, over-ripe black grapes, transitions mid-palate to a teensy weensy bit raw, unadulterated alcohol. Brackish water comes to mind. "Finish" (undiluted): Some smoke. A little green and a tinge of bitterness accompanies the taste of sherry and oak at the end.

This single malt is an absolutely wonderful whiskey. I love it!.
- Michael "Deadeye" Perry, 4th Sep '10
I also think Aberlour is the best single malt for the price. In Canada we pay dearly for good single malts, but this one seems to have escaped the excise tax demons. It is delicious.
