    A solid Entry level Single Malt but the 48% non chill-filtered version beats it by a good amount.

  5. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Warming, pleasant, soft, sherry whisky. In my opinion, this Aberlour is one of the best 12 year old sherry whiskys.
    • Nose
      Sherry, tart, with notes of cherries, cherries, sugary odorous prunes, tobacco leaf, almonds and chocolate.
    • Taste
      The taste is dominated by shades of cherries, dried fruits, nuts and oak.
    • Finish
      Medium-long, fairly sweet, moderately oak, filled with echoes of cherry jam, prunes, dried apricots, almonds and dark chocolate.

  6. Alexandr_Zhurov did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    For 12 years it seemed rude, the aroma reminded Glenfarclas 105, but some more honey, like nothing remarkable.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fragrant, herbaceous, honey-floral, ordinary sherry.
    • Taste
      It tasted cold, syrupy, honey, sweet, dry apples, light grassy bitterness.
    • Finish
      Harsh, long-lasting, sweet, light bitterness, some spices in the form of pepper.

  9. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A good young sherry mole, a relatively deep and complex flavor, taste / finish spoils the general subtilism and wateriness, generally light and pleasant, an excellent whisky for the beginner.
    • Nose
        Open, wet, raw barrel, spicy oak, compote of dried fruits, raisins, fresh herbaceous notes, caramel, candy drops, light citrus notes
    • Taste
      Watery, light, tart oak, soft peppery wave, furniture varnish, kvasnoe wort, burnt crackers, cola, light notes of dark beer.
    • Finish
      Light, warming, dried fruits with dominant prunes, light furniture-oak colors, butteriness, dried mushrooms, light metal sour.

  10. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    With 46% that would probably be a fat cracker, he is with 40 € / liter a cheap, very tasty sherry starter - any time, no shelf is ashamed.
    • Nose
      mild, but direct - milk chocolate, orange jelly, drinking cocoa, slightly nutty
    • Taste
      just a short greeting from the orange, instead raisin, in addition chocolate, nut, cocoa, a bit bitter, a little spicier, than the nose can expect, by the 40% but still very mild and round
    • Finish
      medium and soft, chocolate, cocoa
