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.

I used to buy this a lot, however since they dropped it from 43% to 40% it simply is not a patch on what it used to be, gutted, as used to adore this dram.
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.
