Insider knowledge: Aberlour 15 Year Old Double Cask Matured 1l whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Aberlour 15 Year Old Double Cask Matured 1l whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Grassy, with a charming oily, nutty texture. Gentle peat but with good sweetness.
Palate: Nutty, creamy sherry and cinnamon.
Finish: Toffee led, long, buttery finish, just a whisper of smoke.
Overall: Superb balance.
Very sweet nose, cinnamon honey and lots of orange. Lightbody but sweet and a gente aftertouch.

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!
