Customer Rating

A fruity and spicy release from Aberlour, this 16 year old has been matured in a combination of sherry butts and first-fill bourbon casks. Jim Murray scored it 94.5/100 in his 2015 Whisky Bible, describing it as 'a malt of unbridled magnificence'.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Fresh, with notes of toffee chews and milk chocolate, plus spicy oak.

    Palate: Well balanced, with tasty malty notes, rich toffee and a hint of sweet spice. Very drinkable.

    Finish: Rich and spicy.

  • Producer's Notes

    Colour: A warm, golden amber.

    Nose: Creamy with sweet raisin aromas and a spicy nuttiness.

    Palate: A smooth blend of floral and spicy flavours, paired with a sweet plum fruitiness and gentle oakiness.

    Finish: Gloriously long, with a warm, honeyed spiciness.

    I have to reply to Grant - there is no ''classic smokey taste of whisky''. Speysides don''t carry smoke. Islay whiskys carry smoke. That''s what sets them apart. Aberlour is a classic Speyside so why expect smoke ? This is a fine, well rounded dram with the ubiquitous sweetness you would expect from this region.

    on my list of favourites, I found it easy to drink, no water added and no after burn, strong but mellow, no hint of peat

    Great taste

    I was a little underwhelmed by this. It isn't like a whisky you see, the sherry cask takes over the flavour too much, and you end up with a cognac. It is nice and sweet, but for me, it lacks the classic smokey taste of whisky. If you don't add a drop of water, it will anesthetise your pallet too.
