  4. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I don't remember it being that metallic on the mouth but it was a long time ago. A very nice and tasty Aberlour but one less point because of the metallic touch.

    Tasting notes from january 2017.
    • Nose
      Classic sherry nose. Dried fruits, plums, prunes. Whiffs of roasted nuts and mint.
    • Taste
      Punchy, dry and sort of metallic. Spicy and fruity. Caramel. Water tames a little the metallic side.
    • Finish
      Medium, drying, continuity of the mouth.
