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.
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.

An amazingly rich scotch for the price. The 16yr is the perfect blend of sweet without becoming a dessert.
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
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.
