Whisky Reviews for Aberlour 16-year-old

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.89 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    If you like your whisky infused with sherry influences, than this will not disappoint.
    • Nose
      This is a BOMB. Very reminiscent of good batches of a'bunadh, but a tad friendlier. Lots of raisins, dates and dried plums. Molasses and thick cherry syrup too. A hint of aniseed in the background.
    • Taste
      Very, very syrupy. Blackcurrants, red berries and plums. Luscious. Some milk chocolate and espresso, as well as spices (black pepper, cinnamon).
    • Finish
      A tad dry. Spicy at first but ends on a fruitier note. Long.

  3. MacMartini scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Tasty sherry Whisky, for a 16 year old, rich in aroma and taste, intense cinnamon and vanilla and in the aftertaste a fruit flavor of orange, and red apple with caramel and spices.

  4. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very good sherry bomb indeed, fresh not dirty at all. Compare to the A'Bunadh, I would say this one is clearly better with much more complex flavours. 
    • Nose
      Exceptional! Sweet PX sherry influence, very dark but fresh!
    • Taste
      SHERRY, SHERRY, SHERRY! Dark chocolates and fresh mints 
    • Finish
      Long and exceptional, bitter but accompanied with fresh mint and berries
