- Very nice and tasty whisky
Cherry, mandarin, cloves, spicy, dark chocolate, behind it a little vanilla. Strong oak note and a little pepper. Later a light almond note
Peppery, strong, then sweet and vanilla. Toffee and caramel and a little marzipan
Dry and slightly sour. Long lasting with
- A very attractive
Aberlour, that goes down easily and is a perfect match for pastry.
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.
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.
The finish is medium
long on more sweetness, like coffee liqueur.
- 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.

- nice dream, loyal to the Aberlourfamily
vanilla meets sherry, all lots of pasties and after a while toffe, butterscotch, bit of honey
fresh fruits and caramel
long and dry, some spices
very malty, hints of caramel, honey, orange, chocolate
very lively in attack, again caramel, orange then vanilla, hazelnut, cereals
a bit short in my opinion. Pretty dry. Develops on spices
