This rich, spicy 18 year old from Aberlour was only released for general consumption in 2008, prior to this it had only been produced for the French market.
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.

Fantastic single malt
8th January 2017
Great nose and palate. I am a speyside guy and this is probably best I've had.

Fell short of expectation : not much aromas even after adding some water , could have been more full bodied. But definitely melting in mouth & long butter scotch finish. Very delectable & fruity. This double casking is sure confusing on palate & nose !

The creamyness is amazing. The top non-islay whisky I have ever tasted.

i've been looking for a high quality, drink-able malt for some time. caramel and spice - simply excellent. thoroughly recommended - have ordered another bottle.

Full bodied, rich, creamy complex sherried dram with lovely long finish. Much better balanced than the Glendronach 15 Revival. Not as complex as a Macallan 18, but among the group of mature sherried Speyside/Highland whiskies, this one is my favorite for price to value ratio as it can still be found for under 80 USD. Love it! It's goes down so dangerously easy! I have huge stashes of my favorite whiskies, and this is my second largest stash following the Glendronach Revival.

Fantastic! I'm a fan of Dhalwinnie and Balvennie but this is outstanding!
Amazing!!! Better bought in Europe €47 from Carrefour!

The tasting notes are on point. This is a great single malt that I was fortunate enough to purchase at a discounted rate of $77. What a steal!

Could easily pass for a much older 'single cask' malt(taken with one third water). It really is that good. Can't wait for same product at cask strength. Eric Payne

Very smooth taste & smell...

Even though I'm a big fan of the Islay malts, the 18 Yo Aberlour is still one of my favourite whiskeys to date.A real must for any whiskey drinker

Words cannot do this whisky justice. Aberlour doesn't get the love that other Speysides do, but they most certainly should.

My favorite single malt. Beautiful auburn color. Great sherry notes, and creaminess. Butterscotch, toffee, bitter orange. Long finish, with a hint of oakiness. Incredible complexity.

received Bottle of 18 year old Aberloir this Christmas as gift from my son. Now tasting it first time. Fine colour, plenty of flavors, not too smoky
8th January 2015
Received a bottle of the 18 for Christmas this year. While I'm not a straight scotch drinker, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall smooth taste and finish to this. Chilled is my go to for most whiskey or scotch but this was great as is out of the bottle.

I'm a massive fan of Aberlour and the 18 yo is the ultimate Aberlour and entirely unique. However, the only place I will actually buy this whisky is at the distillery itself as it goes for 53 pounds there. So, this is a whisky I buy and keep for special occasions, as I find 70 pounds far too expensive for an 18.
19th November 2014
Don't get me wrong this is a very good drink, but I'm just now comparing it against the Tomatin 18 and it's almost indistinguishable. Except the latter is non chill filtered, 3% higher abv, and costs less. I'll continue to keep a supply of the a'Bunadh in my closet, but as for this one I'll probably pass.
29th September 2014
This whisky tastes as an Angel drink.Really great
16th June 2014
I am a true expert of whiskyeys. I dont know anything of any of them. I just got this bottle for my dad when he turned 50 and it turned out to be a sucess. Great wine!! No sorry, beer!!!!

Take a good mouthful of this - first tasted - surprisingly rough Speyside Single Malt. Put your had back. Open your mouth. Open your nostrils. Breathe. Swallow. Great. Enjoy the intense flavours of caramelised ripened plums. Whiskey.
18th October 2013
Orange and marzipan vapors; strawberry and plum on the tongue.Never too sweet, but always rich and smooth.
4th August 2013
This one is more sherried than 16 yo, but the palate is a bit sharp to me. 16 yo is considerably smoother.
7th November 2012
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!
25th July 2012
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.

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
