Insider knowledge: Aberlour 18 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Aberlour 18 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Creamy, like melted vanilla ice-cream. Fruity and honeyed.
Palate: Fresh juicy apples and oranges before sherry kicks in with supple sultanas and vanilla.
Finish: Intricate with chocolate raisins and oily caramel notes.
The 16 y Aberlour Double Matured being one of my all time favourites I had to try this expression when seeing it in the shop. And it didn't dissapoint!!
Nose : Soft fruits like bananas ( think creme de banasas smell ), peaches and apricots Palate : peaches and apricots again imbedded in some creamy vanilla. Some spiciness in the end.Finish : some spiciness lingers for a while which is nice.Overall I am beginning to like it more and more and I think this would go nicely with dessert
A great scotch, on the first taste an explosion of flavors attack your tastebuds with a creamy like fruity taste and also has a great smell. Amazing for the price, I will enjoy this regularly, I enjoy drinking this scotch neat.
Nose: At first anonymous. Then, after a while, fresh fruits, nectar, vanilla, oak-spice, and sweet malt reveals itself. It’s mellow, sneaky.
Taste: Vanilla and fruity honey-filled butterscotch. The finish is spicy and sweet, maybe a bit too much of wood from the oak-spice. But all in all, a lovely dram!
This one is more sherried than 16 yo, but the palate is a bit sharp to me. 16 yo is considerably smoother.
