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.

    Picked this up on a whim, think it might be the BEST Single Malt I've ever had!

    Absolutely delicious. Mellow, pleasant with hints of swetness, smoke, nuts. Complex but extremely drinkable taste! I loved it!

    Just lovely. For me, this compares to the Macallan 12 and the Balvenie Doublewood 12.. Please don''t ask me to pick a favourite!

    I''m a beer drinker. But bought a box of cigars, and thought I''d have with a shot of scotch. Picked this 12 off the shelf, and wow, very very good. Hard to imagine another scotch could be any better with a cigar. Smooth, clean, and well, just perfect.

    I was a huge fan of the Aberlour 10 until a friend persuaded me to give this a try. Suffice to say the 10 is now a lonely fellow

    This is my favorite Scotch of them all. Smooth as silk. I made the mistake of getting my wife to try a dram and she drained it within a week..... And She DOESN''T DRINK!!!!

    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.
