  1. user1 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    A nice bottling, you can still feel the "old school" before commercialism became overwhelming. Aberlour's typical lightness, which is nevertheless rich in nuances. Glad I got this dram.

  6. schengel10 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A "really great" malt that everyone will like - a wonderful composition of ex-bourbon and above all sherry barrels.
    An "all-rounder" that will always please ...

      a very soft start, ripe apples, oranges, sherry, oily body, vanilla, caramel, nuts, honey, also some oak;

    Very nice, great mouth. Creamy taste all around. Enjoyed this one quite a bit. Almost 86 points I`d say.

  12. BottleBox scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Very nice and tasty whisky
    • Nose
      Cherry, mandarin, cloves, spicy, dark chocolate, behind it a little vanilla. Strong oak note and a little pepper. Later a light almond note
    • Taste
      Peppery, strong, then sweet and vanilla. Toffee and caramel and a little marzipan
    • Finish
      Dry and slightly sour. Long lasting with

  13. markjedi1 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A very attractive
    Aberlour, that goes down easily and is a perfect match for pastry.
    • Nose
      The nose is very soft
      on vanilla, Granny Smith apples, sugared almonds and caramel. Chocolate cookies
      filled with orange marmalade. Some acacia honey after a while.
    • Taste
      It is equally soft on
      the palate. Creamy almost. A perfect continuation of the nose, with the
      emphasis on apples, surprisingly enough. Midpalate the spices kick in, but
      certainly not very loud. This is all very quaffable and honeysweet. The hint of
      rubber is easily forgiven.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium
      long on more sweetness, like coffee liqueur.

  14. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Malty and sweet nose, on fresh cereals and honey.

    The palate is sweet and sweet, with some sensations of butter malt.

    Short finish on a very slight bitterness embedded in vanilla honey.

    To drink in small quantities, the dram becomes a little disgusting towards the end because of the sensation. But otherwise it's a nice whisky to drink as a whole.

  16. MacMenM scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    nice dream, loyal to the Aberlourfamily
    • Nose
      vanilla meets sherry, all lots of pasties and after a while toffe, butterscotch, bit of honey
    • Taste
      fresh fruits and caramel
    • Finish
      long and dry, some spices

  17. tomy63 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      very malty, hints of caramel, honey, orange, chocolate
    • Taste
      very lively in attack, again caramel, orange then vanilla, hazelnut, cereals
    • Finish
      a bit short in my opinion. Pretty dry. Develops on spices

  18. SilentStill scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    For the price a passable to good everyday whisky for friends of a Sherryfinishing.
    • Nose
      Quite mild in the first impression, the finish in the Pedro Ximinez barrel is already noticeable fruity or vinous, but also traces of caramel and nut can be heard, as well as easier "rubber abrasion".
    • Taste
      On the palate, too, a lot of grape aromas, which passable combine with slightly woody-nutty notes. For 43% slightly thin on the chest, ie slightly watery with very slight bitterness and finally a salty finish.
    • Finish
      At best, medium in the finish, slightly salty, somewhat einfälltig.
