    Character: A slightly sweetish, simple sherry malt, whose taste falls behind the nose. The taste is then quickly sweet-sour-spicy. The basic character is sweet-sour-spicy and rather flat. Sweet sherry, a slightly grumpy / sour oak, pepper and alcohol dominate the somewhat unbalanced overall picture.

    Rating: Sure well done, but not fish and not meat. The sweet sherry does not bring too many flavors with it and the oak comes a little indecisively "awkward" / sour. The pepper does not tear it out any more. Especially since the alcohol in between tastes a bit unpleasantly sharp. For me falls into the category "edible". But I do not need a second time in the glass. 81 points
    • Nose
      Basic flavors: sweetness, dried fruit, citrus notes, cereals, caramel, furniture polish, oak (little) Description: Sweet sherry dominates the nose. Sweet raisins meet orange marmalade and caramel. Now and then a little malt flickers through and constantly something resonates, which reminds me of furniture polish. The oak notes are only very weak present and are superimposed by the sweet basic tone. A simple, slightly sherry nose in the overall picture.
    • Taste
      Basic flavors: sweetness, malt, oak, spice, acid, fruits (little) Description: The onset is very light and a little creamy. The mouthfeel is sweet at first. Lots of sweet sherry and subtle red fruit that can not be specified meet malt. But then it is quickly spicy-peppery and a certain alcohol sharpness is spreading. The oak looks a bit indecisive and almost sour. Overall, a somewhat special and rather flat overall composition: sweet, sour and spicy.
    • Finish
      Basic flavors: sweetness, oak, sherry, coffee, nut Description: The finish is medium long, dry and sweet and sour. The slightly grumpy oak, the sweetish sherry and pepper sound slightly warming. On the palate, it becomes increasingly woody and at the end somewhat bitter: like cold black coffee and bitter almonds.

    In my opinion one of the Whiskys with the best value for money. It's light and delicate, the sherry cask influence is noticeable and there is a nice note of honey

    Aberlour 10 years has a soft and full taste with notes of honey and nutmeg combined with autumn fruit.

    Bottle from December 2013 Really a great sherried whisky for a reasonable price, but ... why do not you just bottle it at 46% without filtering and caramel, if necessary you raise the price by 10 euros. One should really make this the norm. Are so many beautiful whiskys that could have been better without this bullshit. Pulteney 12, Aberlour 10, Clynelish 14 (heavily colored 46% like Talisker 10), Laphroaig 10, Cragganmore 12 (actually very Diageo).
    Fortunately we still have new guys like Kilchoman, Arran, Wolfburn etc.
