Aberlour 18 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Lots of sherried fruit and spicy oak, but balanced by a freshness, and tangy tropical-fruit aromas.
Palate: Rich and chocolatey, with cinnamon and nutmeg, toasty oak and biscuity notes, with a clean, fresh back note for balance. Lovely soft mouthfeel.
Finish: Well balanced, solid.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Nose: Rich and complex, milk chocolate and butterscotch combine with ripe peach and orange zest.
Palate: Perfect structure - initial notes of soft apricot and cream offset by developing flavours of liquorice and oak with a touch of honey.
Finish: Very long and balanced, progresses from creme brulee to a gentle oak flourish.

Very good one this..full bodied and rich and complex flavours.Best Aberlour I've tasted yet..even better than I remember from a few months ago!??
One of my new favorite
very smooth and easy to drink with a splash of water, I find that I can unpack more flavour with smaller sips of this exceptional whisky
Not bad certainly with nice mellow cereal aromas and light sherry notes but not a huge step up from the 10 y.o. for me. I much prefer ther A'Bunadh
got a bottle of 18 year old for my 50th birthday i will not bulls**t you with i can smell this and that or taste the peaches and apricots but i will tell the honest truth and say this is one of the smoothest and drinkable whiskies i have had the pleasure to try
Awesome and smooth also very soft like silk excellent choice JJF
This whiskey is superb! It will teach you the meaning of what dried fruit notes are and thenose on it alone will keep you going for hours. The wonderful oak stays on the tongue forever. Trust a fellow whisky connoisseur just buy this whiskey you wont regret it!
One of the best whiskey I ever had. The long chocolate notes and the combination of peach and apricot makes the whole drinking experience amazing....
I agree that the Aberlour's www needs some refurbishment:) This whisky is perfect, a classy development of 15yo Cuvee Marie d'Ecosse.
Nose : Soft fruits like bananas ( think creme de banasas smell ), peaches and apricots Palate : peaches and apricots again imbedded in some creamy vanilla. Some spiciness in the end.Finish : some spiciness lingers for a while which is nice.Overall I am beginning to like it more and more and I think this would go nicely with dessert.Strange this is I can't find it yet on the Aberlour website which I find strange
This is fantastic if you like big sherried whiskies.Nose: Sherried oak. Butterscotch and brown sugar. I can sniff this till the cows come home.Palate: Spicy Christmas pudding Finish: Long rich and warming. Lovely after dinner malt.
