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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
