- Fruity, floral Speysider. Very tasty.
- Tasting Notes:
- Paid approx. 40 €
- Nice enough nose, but no body, no character, no finish
- I was expecting a concentrated and rancid board, but it is above all a soft and unctuous product, easy to drink.
It starts with the fruity of a young speyside, but also vanilla cream and wood ... young (board?). Some notes of orange peel.
It is sweet, mellow, a little fat, with hints of honey, caramel, cream, orange and vanilla.
Very short, with a little caramel.
- Entry level a little young, but very easy to drink.
a lot of green fruits (especially apple), cereals, sugar, quite young, very expressive.
sweet, sweet, easy, lots of vanilla, apple. Made very young there too. Slightly thick texture. Not particularly spicy.
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.
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.
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.
Returns to very fruity again. The bitter edge stays, but keeps it from becoming too sweet and also adding depth to this whisky.
