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.

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
One of my favourites - very smooth and rich, goes down a treat. A must have for any Speyside drinkers!
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.
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.
