Aberlour 12 Year Old Reviews
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.

Bland and boring. If you want a full bodied sweet dram, I would suggest a bottle of Glenfiddich solera vat. At about the same cost there is no comparison.
Found this quite anaemic. Never have I tasted a whisky more in need of a higher strength. Its not without charm, but in future I will stick with the sherried loveliness of the standard 10, or opt for the unchillfiltered 12 version.
Got this as a gift and very happy with it. I don't drink a lot of scotch but I do like a bit of Jamesons, so the sweetness is familiar and pleasant. I would probably in future go for something a little more challenging, but in itself there's nothing wrong with it!
Picked up a bottle without knowing a thing about Scotch. I still no knowing about Scotch Whisky, but I can tell you it tastes damn good
Picked this up on a whim, think it might be the BEST Single Malt I've ever had!
Absolutely delicious. Mellow, pleasant with hints of swetness, smoke, nuts. Complex but extremely drinkable taste! I loved it!
Just lovely. For me, this compares to the Macallan 12 and the Balvenie Doublewood 12.. Please don''t ask me to pick a favourite!
I''m a beer drinker. But bought a box of cigars, and thought I''d have with a shot of scotch. Picked this 12 off the shelf, and wow, very very good. Hard to imagine another scotch could be any better with a cigar. Smooth, clean, and well, just perfect.
I was a huge fan of the Aberlour 10 until a friend persuaded me to give this a try. Suffice to say the 10 is now a lonely fellow
One of my favourites - very smooth and rich, goes down a treat. A must have for any Speyside drinkers!
