    The nose is a nice mix of fruit and sweetness. All in all, very soft and round. There could be more wums in the mouth and on the finish. He is a bit cautious in giving off his aromas. The 12y Non chill-filtered was much more present here and I personally liked it better.
    • Nose
      After the 12y non chill-filtered my second Aberlour. The color in the glass is very similar to that of the 12. Nice and oily. I have the 40% version here. Accordingly, you don't notice any alcohol. Fruity-sweet smells rise straight from the glass into the nose. For me, the fruit or the fruits cannot be exactly defined. Orange at the beginning, maybe also a ripe red apple. Rum raisins behind it. After the first sip I notice caramel.
    • Taste
      Very soft body. Round in the mouth. No burning from alcohol. Fruit right at the beginning. In the middle a creamy mouthfeel, like light milk chocolate, which is crushed against the palate. After the first sip, the fruitiness changes to a spiciness at the beginning.
      I am a little lacking in the intensity of the flavors in my mouth. Can of course be due to the "only" 40%. It would be interesting if the 43er version brings more pressure on the palate.
    • Finish
      A soft, beautiful finish. The first sip I don't notice anything on the barrel. Maybe at the very end a trace of the oak, just a hint. The mouth dries towards the end and ends with a subtle sherry nuance. Overall, the duration of the departure is rather medium.
