A fruity and spicy release from Aberlour, this 16 year old has been matured in a combination of sherry butts and first-fill bourbon casks. Jim Murray scored it 94.5/100 in his 2015 Whisky Bible, describing it as 'a malt of unbridled magnificence'.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Fresh, with notes of toffee chews and milk chocolate, plus spicy oak.

    Palate: Well balanced, with tasty malty notes, rich toffee and a hint of sweet spice. Very drinkable.

    Finish: Rich and spicy.

  • Producer's Notes

    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.

    Finish: Gloriously long, with a warm, honeyed spiciness.

    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!!!

    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

    Great taste

    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.
