Customer Rating

Aberlour 10yo is a great entry-level malt, ideal for beginners, with a fine sherried spiciness. Pound for pound, this is one of the best that Speyside has to offer.

    Last time I tasted (10/2014) Aberlour 10 yo, it was really badly sulfured. They should never had that batch leave the distillery. It''s sad because 10 yo has always been a great malt. The sulfur problem is a big issue in the whisky industry, because of growing volumes and lack of quality sherry casks. Distilleries never talk about it, fortunately we have Jim.

    Not a bad Dram at all. The youngess does imditaly hit you on the nose and the taste , but 2 Teaspoons of water and this Dram really does come to life. Delicious and sweet the Raisin and Honey are unmistakable. Fantastic purchase for the price.

    Tastes like a Robert Frost poem...after a sip, my mind can only picture late fall/early winter walks home to a little cabin in the woods. Comforting, sweet, gentle...no doubt a great choice newcomers to the world of single malt whisky like myself. Lots of fruit and vanilla, with just a tiny bite near the end. Miles above Glenfiddich and Glenlivet in my humble opinion.

    Decent, easy-drinking single malt. Starts off with a lot of sherry on the nose but settles down in the glass. Needs a drop of water in my opinion but is pleasant enough and good value for money

    Cant complain at that price. I agree with some of the previous comments. Nose is great, taste is a bit meh, a little too sweet for my tastes without much else. Occasionally get a strange sulphur kind of taste which isnt too pleasant. Take this with a pinch of salt im hardly a connoisseur! Not one Im looking forward to revisiting at the moment.

    Easy going dram, good for Summertime entertainment. AB10 makes me long for Glendronach-12 or Macallan-12 ...

    A lovely nose. Taste is not overly complex, but for the price it's a fine value. Extremely smooth, perfect for beginner whisky drinkers.

    This whisky has a great nose. The smell promises so much flavour and complexity, which the taste does not deliver on at all. This is only just worth the £20 I paid for a bottle, and I keep it around for the sake of having a whisky in the house I don't mind whisky-and-coke fans using. I may be being unfair to it here, as a lot of people seem to like it, but I think there are much nicer single malts for the price

    Agree with Kelly that it is a pleasant, sherrish malt, with a very nice bouquet but lacking some character, notably finish is a bit too short and not leaving any aftertaste. Should be 46%. Still a good one for beginners or for every day budget-malt sipping.

    I found this one pleasent, but rather forgettable. Not remarkable or outstanding in any particular way that I could discern, but certainly decent enough. Anyway, it is quite possible I missed some of the subtleties others have praised, so I would be glad enough of a chance to investigate it again.
