  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    he is quite OK but not a purchase candidate
    the nose is weird
    not your typical Aberlour sherry malt

    I liked the old version (ID 17680) better
    • Nose
      starts thin, musty, slightly sherry becomes more, slightly raisins, sweet red berries, oak becomes more, gum becomes more
    • Taste
      light and soft on the palate
      old oak, soft sherry becomes more, musty, slightly dirty, a red berry mix, spicy, raisins, bitter and then becomes tart
    • Finish
      medium long
      Sherry becomes more, slightly sweet, very spicy (great)

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Not very surprising this one, exactly what you might expect of such an Aberlour: Decent, pretty full, smooth, not too complex. Red fruits, raisins, some honey.
    A very consistent dram, pleasant for sure for a nice sipper during a movie or something.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Some nice red fruits, raisins, no alcohol punch at all.
    • Taste
      83 83
      A very little punch at first, then smooth, red fruits, raisins, some orange and honey.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Still the red fruits and raisins remain, with some honey. Smooth, middle long finish.
