Customer Rating
Aberlour 10yo is a great entry-level malt, ideal for beginners, with a fine sherried spiciness. Pound for pound, this is one of the best that Speyside has to offer.

    Varies far too much from bottle to bottle. I've had absolute cracking bottles of Aberlour 10 and I've also had terrible ones. Great whisky when you have a good bottle but too inconsistent to be a go to single malt. OK place to start if you can pick it up for 20 notes.

    A great whisky for the price a soft sherry taste all the way through . Always have a bottle at home . An everyday whisky.

    Good whiskey, lots of character but might be a bit heavy on the nose for some. Overall, i really like rhis whiskey, 12 years are a lot refined but, for the price i would say its a good deal. My all time favourite as a budget whiskey cant go wrong.

    As a non-whiskey drinker, I found this the best of all I have tried. ( Bought as part of an introduction to whiskey pack) I would recommend to any other non- whiskey drinker, as a gateway whiskey. That said, it does lack a pinch of character though, especially in the aftertaste.

    Last time I tasted (10/2014) Aberlour 10 yo, it was really badly sulfured. They should never had that batch leave the distillery. It''s sad because 10 yo has always been a great malt. The sulfur problem is a big issue in the whisky industry, because of growing volumes and lack of quality sherry casks. Distilleries never talk about it, fortunately we have Jim.

    Not a bad Dram at all. The youngess does imditaly hit you on the nose and the taste , but 2 Teaspoons of water and this Dram really does come to life. Delicious and sweet the Raisin and Honey are unmistakable. Fantastic purchase for the price.

    Tastes like a Robert Frost poem...after a sip, my mind can only picture late fall/early winter walks home to a little cabin in the woods. Comforting, sweet, gentle...no doubt a great choice newcomers to the world of single malt whisky like myself. Lots of fruit and vanilla, with just a tiny bite near the end. Miles above Glenfiddich and Glenlivet in my humble opinion.

    Decent, easy-drinking single malt. Starts off with a lot of sherry on the nose but settles down in the glass. Needs a drop of water in my opinion but is pleasant enough and good value for money

    Cant complain at that price. I agree with some of the previous comments. Nose is great, taste is a bit meh, a little too sweet for my tastes without much else. Occasionally get a strange sulphur kind of taste which isnt too pleasant. Take this with a pinch of salt im hardly a connoisseur! Not one Im looking forward to revisiting at the moment.

    Easy going dram, good for Summertime entertainment. AB10 makes me long for Glendronach-12 or Macallan-12 ...

  • Nick from Canada 19 December 2013

    A lovely nose. Taste is not overly complex, but for the price it's a fine value. Extremely smooth, perfect for beginner whisky drinkers.

  • Vilhelmus 27 November 2013

    This whisky has a great nose. The smell promises so much flavour and complexity, which the taste does not deliver on at all. This is only just worth the £20 I paid for a bottle, and I keep it around for the sake of having a whisky in the house I don't mind whisky-and-coke fans using. I may be being unfair to it here, as a lot of people seem to like it, but I think there are much nicer single malts for the price

  • rico 23 July 2013

    Agree with Kelly that it is a pleasant, sherrish malt, with a very nice bouquet but lacking some character, notably finish is a bit too short and not leaving any aftertaste. Should be 46%. Still a good one for beginners or for every day budget-malt sipping.

  • Kelly 12 May 2013

    I found this one pleasent, but rather forgettable. Not remarkable or outstanding in any particular way that I could discern, but certainly decent enough. Anyway, it is quite possible I missed some of the subtleties others have praised, so I would be glad enough of a chance to investigate it again.

  • Johnny Norfolk. 1 May 2013

    This is a great all rounder at a great price. Try it there is nothing not to like about it.

  • Anonymous 2 April 2013

    I have 1 bottle in memory of my Father every Christmas, miss him having a few dram's with me

  • The Colonel 26 March 2013

    One of the first single malts I purchased and a good introduction to Speyside. Easy drinking style that will not offend anyone and good value for money. If you like this I would recommend trying Singleton, Monkey Shoulder or perhaps a Glenlivet 15yr old, all of which are readily available and easy to cheekily request for your birthday or xmas!

  • Islwyn Paul 2 February 2013

    A straightforward malt but with a tremendously rounded flavour. An everyday, undemanding but ultimately enjoyable dram that you keep coming back too. Good value.

  • Rick. 22 November 2012

    A great dram, & great value for money. I would recommend to anyone.

  • Bryan 26 August 2012

    A memorable single malt whiskey. Absolutely NO smoky taste whatsoever, simply a quiet, mellow and extremely smooth and sweet flavour. I have since put my Glenfidiche away and have made this my scotch of choice - just marvelous!
