Whisky Reviews for Aberlour 10-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.88 points
- Appearance: Pretty sherry-looking reddish amber. Probably colored though.
Nose: Raisins, wax, sherry nose, vanilla, malt sugar. Some citrus and apples.
Palate: Sweet, raisin, malt sugar, biscuits, sherry, cinnamon, vanilla. Not much oak. Slightl ypeppery.
Finish: Peppery, cinnamon, raisin, sweet malt. Bit of wax.
With Water: Can’t take it.
Overall: A tasty young sherried whisky for a reasonably price. Not mind-blowing, but good value and pretty tasty. Probably won’t reach for another soon though, unless I go broke. Really enjoyably, though, albeit simple.
- Quite simple, very "drinkable", everyday whisky. In France, it is sold in chain stores for 25 euros. Excellent value for money.
Shades of lollipops, caramel and Buratino soda prevail. Oatmeal cookies, red apple and foliage can be felt in the background.
Caramel, tannins and citrus notes.
Medium duration, with a bias in candy-lollipop tones, with a taste of Buratino soda and red ripe apple.
- A nice simple whisky but I find the 12y better in this price-range. Never had the ‘old’ 10y so cant compare.
Easy going whisky for a nice evening with friends
Chocolate, oak, vanilla, chocolate, little harsch and alcoholic.
Smooth, vanilla, lots of oak, maybe too much, touch of caramel, not very complex but nice. Little bit of (red?) pepper.
Quite short, peppery.
- Pleasant fruity smell, mild taste. The finish is unfortunately a bit short. Beginners whisky with adequate PLV.
Nose launches very sweet, sweetened lemon, orange oil, lots of vanilla, fresh juicy wood - very direct - smells suspiciously of delicious Virginoak, slightly floral, cotton candy, strawberries - really good for his class and not too weak despite 40%
starts fruity, sweet, melon, lemon, vanilla cream - then falls off a bit mineral, herbal woody notes, in the background sherry with dried fruit - seems a bit "dirty" with lacks the clear line - harmony
for 40% really not bad, warm, sweet, ginger, pepper, oatmeal cookies, nothing burns but for me as a CS friend a little too unsettling - for the target group sure top with 2 large swallows, he then also medium length on the palate
