Tasting Notes

  • 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.

    Very nice tasting whisky and warm finish due to the cinnamon and spices

    One of the best single malts for the money. Non peated with fruity notes. No artificial color. Actually, to be perfectly honest, this 12 year double cask would pass for 3 times the price. Other brands that I have are great or I wouldn’t drink them but this is great value in my area. Almost too good to be true. My advice is to buy some and try it!

    Not my style since I am on the peat style whiskeys but this is very good for a non peated whiskey. One of the best I can say and close to the great Japanese, Nikka and Hibiki that I think are probably the best sweet style whiskeys

    Tried it for the first time, just because it was new to my liquor store. I could not be happier, well balanced. Have a friend who tried it and is now asking for a bottle on his Christmas stocking.

    Having bought the 10 I though I should try the 12, as you do. The 12 is vastly superior to the 10 and worth every penny of what ever extra you pay. It’s absolutely beautiful and if like me you happen to pick it up for a good price then you will be one very lucky chap/chapet indeed!

    I do agree with the previous review to mine that that it dosen't leave a strong taste in your throat after you have drunk it. But I will say apart from that this uncomplicated 12 year old whisky to drink however it is very classy. Beautiful color a great aroma and very sweet and easy to drink. I have yet to taste the 10 year old but I am definetly going to buy that to!

    I have to say, as much as I love the taste and smell of this whisky, it doesn't last at all. The taste is gone almost as soon as it's gone down your throat leaving you with no lasting satisfaction. It's a shame, too, because this whisky -- as I mentioned -- smells and tastes dreamy. This will be a whisky I take to a friend's or share with a whisky virgin. It's rich and not remotely harsh, which is nice if you're after mild like I am. I'd rate this much higher if the taste lingered, and I'm sure you will too. I'd only buy this again on sale.

    Sweet and straight forward. It has the sweet fruit taste and chocolate notes which are expressed in many reviews and notes. But it is not one of the greats. The finish is not long on the palette and it is simple.

    I am a big peat fan but I always like the Aberlour 12. A rich, full bodied taste, always a pleasure to drink any time of the year. Smooth and mellow with hints of vanilla, nutmeg and licorice.

    This is probably the best value for your money scotch. It outperforms whiskies that cost $20 more. Smooth, sweet with some nice spice and wood. Very well balanced. Great Speyside malt, and I'm a guy who's usually an Islay drinker.
