Aberlour 12 Year Old Reviews
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.

First try of this and wow, complex, spices that tingle my tounge. What I love is the smokiness from the oak, it''s bloody good. If you''re offered a glass if this, definitely try it and take your time with it as it is complex.
A very fine whisky. Sweet finish as the discription states, hinting at chocolate. Personally I didn''t smell the cinnamon toast, but the nose has a woody touch to it. Not peaty at all, overall a whisky with a complex range of smells and tastes that last long after sipping, but still easy going.
My wife bought this as NY/Christmas present to me, considering that I prefer Speyside single malt whiskey.This one is ideal for winter holiday evenings, with smooth aroma and slit touch of festive mood.
I brought aberlour whisky for my husband at christmas so I thought I would try a dabble it is amasing it slides down your throat so smooth we love it
Single malted Scotch is my choice of relax and have a drink. This is a wonderful scotch. I have my scotch evenings tried this one and felt great the next day. What gives?
Great value morish Sherry malt, highly recommend
Like this. Sherry an spice. With apple on the finish. Good stuff.
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.
A very smooth and delicious whisky.My favourite Malt.Tastes exactly like it says on the tin>thoroughly recommended by this Scot.
