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.

    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.

    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.
