  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This is the beehive, more honey is not possible. Delicious, but also quite one-dimensional. Which in this case doesn't matter if you're looking for a dessert whisky.

      I've never had a malt that smells like fruity honey in my glass. This is Aberlour: the honey of single malts. Nothing more to say, maybe some freshly squeezed orange juice.
    • Taste

      Tart, fruity start, blood orange doused with forest honey, plus crème brulee. Hardly any disturbing wood, but very strong.

      Medium length, vanilla, buttered bread with honey.

      I like Aberlour and it would be great if it weren't for the short finish. The mouthfeel is great

  8. Simon Stood scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Lovely nose, creamy fruit dessert. 22
    Less sweet on the palate and less intense. 21
    The aftertaste is dried fruit, light bitterness, pepper, leather, quite long and varied. 22
    Balance 21.5
