  2. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    One of the best Aberlour’s I have ever tried.
    • Nose
      Subtle and balanced old sherry casks. Red apple mush with plenty of waxy peel. Nose becomes fruitier and fruitier with time. A basket of all the right stuff.
    • Taste
      Has some strength. The fruitiness arrives, old oak, some leather all topped with that apple sauce. Drop of aged balsamic but all in perfect balance.
    • Finish
      Peppery wood spice, gentle warmth and soft touches of old oak

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    What a power, I'm not even warm with the current Aberlour, no matter how old and which, this is another league. Not very complex, but concentrated top.
    • Nose
      Buttery, dark broth, all kinds of nuts, hazelnut, macadamia, walnut, burnt butter, orange oil, rose water, perfumed, Cointreau, nice sherry oak, fruit tea, nutmeg, cinnamon, after a long time then drier with spine, old tobacco can, Etc.
    • Taste
      Vieeel orange, grapefruit lightly roasted, all the nuts again, Cointreau, full power forward, actually the strongest 43% I've ever had, brown malt, very straight forward and "sharp", just the kind Serge loves so much
    • Finish
      Grapefruit, leather, tannins and tobacco, drier and long
