It's a very affordable very sippable scotch. Love the sherry aspect of it
29th January 2016
My first Speyside whisky after a not so happy encounter with Glenfiddich a few years ago. First impressions were a bit like a bourbon. Sweet and slightly syrupy but with that more familiar malty-ness coming through at the end. Lots of flavour here.Very, very easy to drink this. Needs very little, if any, water imo. Got this on offer so feel I got a real steal here.If you are a fan of bourbon but are curious about single malts give this a try. Can't wait to try the Abunadh!

Got this as a Christmas present from me dear old mum who doesn't know a thing about scotch. I've Had the 10year and rather enjoyed it so I popped open the tin full of anticipation. What I found inside was a simply designed, squat little bottle exuding charm and possessing a very thick neck (a characterful feature) and this contained a russet liquid of beautiful clarity.On the nose there is an initial whiff of spiced plum and raisins that gives way to a burnt toffee aroma.On the tongue it feels slightly thick, but not oily with a wonderful warmth. Cinnamon, toffee and vanilla fudge with an undertone of Orange bitterness go down the throat easily and sit in the mouth, fading into a light zest.As a fan of sherry cask malts (Glenmorangie Lasanta and Balvenie Doublewood are my favourites) I found this to be a pleasing change. Familiar flavours with less sweetness and a more robust character.Makes a great accompaniment to rich dessert, and a small measure before bed hasn't done any harm the last couple of days.Overall, a great whiskey if you like the sherry character. Beautifully presented and not ridiculously priced. Will definitely get another bottle once this one is gone

I only really drink the smokey stuff but got a bottle of this for Crimbo yesterday and I have to say, it's pretty awesome. I get quite an oily mouthfeel when I drink this which is nice (not sure why nobody else seems to pick up on this in their reviews, maybe I'm imagining things) Very warming in the mouth without being spicy like a talisker and has a really nice after glow like lagavulin 16yo. If you like the smokey stuff then I urge you to try this, it's not an Isla obviously but it has a similar appeal to me. It's really nice and an interesting change. Top notch :)

Alcohol taste. Nose is ok
7th December 2015
Nose: floral, light, sweet.Body: tastes a lot like pear. It's light enough that it's easy to forget that you are, in fact, drinking a scotch and not sherry. Finish: very short, but that's where you get just enough peat and heat to remind you, "No, you're not crazy, you were actually drinking a scotch." Overall: a yummy scotch with a light, fruity sweetness to it (in contrast with, say, Glenmorangie Lasanta, which has a syrup-y, molasses-y sweetness). However, I got it significantly discounted from its normal retail price in Texas. Normally, it's about $65, and I got it for about 20% off. *If* you are like me and prefer things like AnCnoc and Ardmore, it isn't worth that much (meaning that I also wouldn't recommend it for the $85 it costs through Master of Malt, assuming delivery to U.S.). This disclaimer isn't based on the quality of the whiskey; it's a reflection of my preferences. If you can get it discounted, I think you should go for it.

Got given a bottle when it was cheap around Christmas. Absolutely loved it. Really easy going taste, great after-burn. Really good all round for the price.

I like the ocassional glass of whisky but when I got the 12 year old whisky as a fathers day present and I was extremely disappointed with it. In fact I had to pour away 1/2 a glass after hoping I might mellow towards it. I can't really describe it but somehow the taste reminds me of a pre med which I had before an operation many years ago when I was a child. Is there any possibility it might be a bad batch? Sorry about the negative feedback.

Moderate sherry notes - spicy chocolate toffee finish - great value 12 year old Speyside whisky - will buy again
20th May 2015
I love it! Drink it neat before and after dinner and enjoy. One of my other favorites is Glenfarclas 12, which is very similar, except more dry, which I like very much. These are by far my two favorite Speyside whiskies. Cheers!

Medium sherry, fruity, nice everyday drink. I bought it for 22eur, so its good price and quality combination.

It was Aberlour that first got my attention to scotch whisky. That being said that was 12 years ago. I still appreciate the product but I would be lying if I didn't say that I miss the 43% abv.
19th March 2015
which means I am also unsure what to think....yet! no question that it is quality stuff and is unique. the problem is I was expecting not just balance and a spectrum of flavors (all there), I am missing an expected (unfairly?) ummph....I was hoping for a heavier contentprobably not fair that I looked into this after having had the cask strength release last week.....don't get me wrong, but this is a lovely dram. but I bet the 86 proof version was much better or....what I was really looking for

This one will surprise you. Pleasant summery nose of grass and heather. The first sip may seem somewhat inconsequential (40% abv will do that) but once you let it open up, there are a ton of flavors vying for your rapt attention. Dried fruits, apricot and pear, leather, and lots of baking spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, along with hazelnut and almond sweetness. Incredibly smooth finish. Found it for less than $40US in Illinois and I think it's a steal. Merry Christmas to me!

The nose reveals ripe fruit and autumn leaves, moist pudding layered with jam, and … Leo Cohen’s voice, saying it’s Closing Time and you should have another. Mouth is tannic, blackcurrants and nutmeg.

This appears to have increased in price by £10 since I last bought it. It's a nice 12 year old Speyside but nothing exceptional. Well overpriced here.
22nd November 2014
I'm more of an Islay fan than Speyside but thought I'd try the Aberlour. Strikes me as a touch bitter without being interesting in its bitterness. Just had it last night over ice, and my last bottle was an Ardbeg 10, so may just be a transition issue.
16th November 2014
This may be my all-time favorite. Very smooth and sweet. Excellent whisky,especially for the price! Keep it, Aberlour!
23rd October 2014
Great aroma mild mannered and a mildly sweet aftertaste. I enjoy this neat. Great value and excellent alternative to blends.
23rd August 2014
I'd say the flavor of this is very similar to Macallan 12 with a heavier taste of sherry. A very enjoyable dram, will definitely buy again. Purchased locally for $42 so I'm surprised to se it listed at $70.
4th April 2014
Went with reviews and suggestions to try. First sip with drop of water nice oily beginning then somewhat of a strange note of moss. A slight burn at the end. Tried second dram over one ice cube. It settled in nice with floral and cinnamon notes. Not everyday dram but nice for a different note on the palate.

My mistake, I was referring to the 43% version. Thanks for clearing it up Master of Malt
12th November 2013
I agree with batman. Less than €40 last month. Why the increase of over 25%?
8th November 2013
im nearly sure i bought this for under 40 euro 3 months ago not impressed with ths and my review is gone why master of malt
6th November 2013
Took a bit of a punt buying this as there were no reviews, and wow, did i get lucky :)I finished the bottle in a couple of weeks (which is almost unheard of for me). I'd compare it to the Balvenie Doublewood 17 year old... which is still my favorite... but i'm buying another bottle of this one now
