Aberlour 10yo Forest

Here we have Forest Reserve, a 10 Year Old single malt from Aberlour distillery! It spent most of its ageing in bourbon barrels and sherry casks from Jerez, before it was treated to a finish in French Limousin oak casks. It's called Forest Reserve as a nod to the commitment of the distillery to conserving the forest in the Speyside region, where the distillery resides.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Fresh oak, with lemon blossom, orange peel and strawberry jam, with a scattering of vanilla pod.

Palate Cantaloupe leads into toffee sweetness, praline and plump raisin, with vanilla oak and dried herbs.

Finish Candied ginger and black pepper, with oat and raisin cookies.

Reviews for Aberlour 10 Year Old Forest Reserve
A more tasty variety of the 10 year old Aberlour
Bought on a whim and out of curiosity to taste the difference to the regular 10 year Aberlour. It feels somewhat heightened in most aspects, a little less smooth, and likely to make the regular 10 feel bland in comparison.

I smell and taste vanilla notes together with a woody aroma. The finish adds well balanced spice.

A good buy, I am sure to repeat the experience

A subtle full taste finished off with a generous nod to its Oak heritage.

Stunning! A well balanced melody of fruit rounded off with the gentle touch of oak.

A Forest of Oak
I found the oak taste overpowering, reminding me of some undrinkable yet overpriced Catalan wines. There may have been other nuances but I won't bother listing them as the balance is so out of kilter. I actually thought "forest reserve" might refer to the amount of trees they slung into the mix!
