Whisky Reviews for Aberlour 10-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.26 points
- C : Ramato. N : Vanilla, dried fruit, almonds, then ripe pears and cream everything closes with a veiled spice of nutmeg. P : The slight spiciness perceived in the nose is now more intense, the nutmeg is still perceptible, then white pepper and green curry. Here are the sweet scents that are not missing at all, hazelnut chocolates, a creamy body, butter, still very ripe yellow fruit. F : On average persistent, spicy chocolate and sherry notes and then again with butter and almonds. This scotch of Speyside ( here the profile of the distillery) has strengths that are hardly questionable, first of all, forgive the unromantic digression, the quality-price ratio. We believe it can be considered a whisky to be offered to a guest / neophyte after dinner, has a sweetness appreciable even by properly feminine tastes, at the same time the simplicity that we are describing does not detract from the personality we found interesting. To make it short is a scotch that in our home corner bar never fails, we highly recommend the purchase. VOTE: 85/100
Malty, spicy, mint toffee.
Distinctively clinging mouth feel, with long-lasting flavour development. Both sweetness and spicy, peppery dryness in its malt character. Nutmeg and berry fruit.
Lingering, smooth, aromatic, clean.
- Seems to be higher ABV than it is.
Somehow different, sweet, rich. Almost thinking about grain whisky, Ireland, USA, so sweet. Vanilla.
Sweet and then alcohol.
Warm, chocolate, cherries in rum, vanilla.
The distinctive, strong smell of sherry, leather, walnuts and a little bourbon perfume, fortunately for me within limits, smells like it all. (85 b)
Sweet taste, honey and a heap of sherry, to do in the second wave of toast, tanned wood (decently), skin. The South after Sherry is a lot to know, which I like. (87 b)
- Loveable and accessible dram for starters
