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.

After trying the 10 I was very wary about buying this, but after finding it on offer I decided to give this a go and I am pleased that I did. The nose is lovely a hint of spice and a strong oak smell to it. On the palate it is a bit thin but has wonderful dried fruits such as currents and the spice comes in full, the two marry together to give a delicious old fashioned fruit cake. The finish lingers for a while but not too much to be overpowering, it''s sweet with a lovely charred oak flavour. Overall I give this 90/100, I shall try to always have a bottle of this in my collection and I urge you to do the same
I bought Aberlour 12 because Checkout51 had a $2.00 cash back offer. I''m glad I did. Wow. I can go into the layers of complexity, nose, finish, etc. Suffice it to say it is a fine whiskey.
Great 12 year old - nose & tasting notes are as described in Aberlour website - wonderful Speyside dram at a great price point - will buy again
This is an excellent whisky. I have tried the 10 year old which is a little lacking in finish so I was more than pleasantly surprised by the 12 year old. The nose is fresh with red apples but its the smooth, chocolaty palate that really blew me away. This follows through to a spicy, smooth finish with a hint of milk chocolate. I have to say - I like this immensely. A lovely dram.
Aberlour 12 with it''s sherried, complex character, good balance and a slightly spicy and warming finish, is the best whiskey I have tried( Aberlour 10 and 12 Glenffidich 12, Glenlivet 12, Scapa 16, Dalmore 12, Glenmorangie the original and Quinta Ruban and Ardbeg 10 which must be judged separately) so due to my humble experience and taste, I would give it a first place. I recommend it to all sherry lovers and everyone else. Good stuff, especialy for the price. Hope it helps you make up your mind
With a little drop of water,,,,,wauw
Wonderful. First tried Abelour 10, now this. Cinnamon, chocolate, raisins... Worth paying more than the asking price. My new favourite.
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.
