This is more interesting and refined compared to the Aberlour 10 YO. I think I will cherish this one for now and look out for a similar cask maturation with a little more age. It is surprising how fruity the Aberlour distillate is as I had assumed much came from the sherry cask. This is a beautiful contrast to the 10 year old and a worthy part of my collection. Great value for sure. I will buy more of this.
Single malt of exceptional charm that portraits the distillery character of Aberlour. Casks filled in 2001, bottled in 2012, making this dram 11 YO. Colour: Copper. Nose: Light, rich sweetness to it with complex aromas. Taste: Apple, banana, coconut, fruit salad sweets, toffee and lemon cream. A hint of cinnamon spice and a little drying on the back of the throat. Finish: Warm, medium length finish with a little spice and lots of fruity sweetness.
