Awards for Aberlour 16 Double Cask
Aberlour 16 Double Cask Details

Whisky or Whiskey
Interesting fact… Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask Matured whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask Matured whiskey, instead of whisky.
Aberlour 16 Double Cask
Matured in two types of casks, the traditional oak and sherry oak casks and bottled at a slightly lower abv of 40% than previous editions, this 16 year old Aberlour is bursting with lush plum, raisin and even floral notes. A cracking Speyside malt.

Boring and oddly bitter (sulfur candle?)
Finish is zero
As a long time SMS drinker, I am terribly disappointed with the Aberlour 16 bottled at 40 ABV. This is what happens when you drown a dram with a wee too much water accidentally. It is worse when a profit seeker does it and ruins the entire stock. Watery and no finish. Nose is light with the reduction in strength. Perhaps to hide the use sulfur. A novice might like this.

This review goes out to all the newbie's like myself. If you are looking for a single malt that is smooth and does not have that alcohol bite. Then this is the one for you. I have tried a lot of single malts but this one you can really drink straight.

I bought a bottle of this after having 2 or 3 bottles of the 10 yo which for sub-£30 is brilliant. The 16 yo extremely smooth but not as complex as I'd expect from a bottle of this age. I enjoy this scotch but I find the flavour is lost with water or ice so it needs to be taken neat which is why it gets a 7 from me.

I love this dram, Floral and honey nose, smooth sweet sherried palate INCREDIBLY smooth and full mouthful. Complex and warming finish. Even better than the Balvenie single barrel 15 or Auchentoshan Thee Wood (and both of those are wonderful)

A disappointment. It smells and tastes weak, with a hint of strange bitterness that could have come from -- as a reviewer mentioned above -- sulfur.

Kind of dull with nothing offensive but nothing noteworthy. I have an almost full bottle but there so many other interesting scotches to poison my liver with. Why waste it on this.
