Nose .. Sweet honey and lots of orange, citrus
Coming from a booming exploding talisker, the Aberlour is is gente and the body is light. Very smooth.. Body consist mostly on toffee, some chocolate and a hint of smoke.
The short finisch is nutty and more toffee can be found here. Very gentle and smooth, if that is your thing you will be pleased here.
Maybe a 43% alcohol perc would suit it fine. As a matter of fact i am enjoying it juyst fine right now!
4 out of 5!
