Absolutely love this whisky and it has been my staple drink for a while now. Nothing more enjoyable than sitting back and relaxing with this intoxicating dram.
Everyone has different tastes, but for me this is one of the best whiskies I've ever had, bought for me as Christmas present by a legend. Smooth as silk, wonderful mid and after taste, burn on the way down is warm and not offensive. This is a wonderful wee dram – highly recommend.
A very interesting 16 year old whisky.. Very warm and creamy. Nice and satisfying finish
I bought this for my husband for our anniversary, he likes Glenfiddich and after talking with the whisky exchange, who recommended this (never heard of it), he said quote 'one of the best he has ever had' :D so thank you!!!
Seen this Whisky but never tired it before and I am impressed very fine tipple
Great taste really enjoyed it
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.
