  8. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I was expecting a concentrated and rancid board, but it is above all a soft and unctuous product, easy to drink.
    • Nose
      It starts with the fruity of a young speyside, but also vanilla cream and wood ... young (board?). Some notes of orange peel.
    • Taste
      It is sweet, mellow, a little fat, with hints of honey, caramel, cream, orange and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Very short, with a little caramel.

  9. tomy63 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Entry level a little young, but very easy to drink.
    • Nose
      a lot of green fruits (especially apple), cereals, sugar, quite young, very expressive.
    • Taste
      sweet, sweet, easy, lots of vanilla, apple. Made very young there too. Slightly thick texture. Not particularly spicy.
    • Finish
      medium length, vanilla, cereal, apple.

    A decent dram, but surely not Aberlour's best effort. Nice enough to try a glass, but I doubt this will win any prizes. 
    • Nose
      Fruity as can be. Sweet berries, cinnamon apple, some tropical fruit of maybe banana and pineapple. Soft spice as well, together with nice sweet oak. 
    • Taste
      Sweet vanilla notes and sharper on the tongue than I was expecting. Some nice spice at work here. After that there's a slight bitter note among the decent chocolate and soft fruit. 
    • Finish
      Returns to very fruity again. The bitter edge stays, but keeps it from becoming too sweet and also adding depth to this whisky.
