Aberlour 12 Year Old Non Chill-Filtered

Aberlour 12 Year Old NCF Bottling Note

No whisky was chillfiltered in the making of this Aberlour, keeping all the flavour from the cask in the whisky, not the filter. It is a 12 year old expression of Highland single malt Scotch whisky with an absolutely gorgeous amber hue, radiant like the sun.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich fig, raisin and caramel. Soft, warm apples and a very light sprinkle of dark chocolate flakes.

Palate: Nutty, fruit and warming. More caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and plenty of entertaining fruit notes.

Finish: Dark chocolate returns for the long finish.

Overall: Great whisky for a cold evening.

Aberlour 12 Year Old Non Chill-Filtered Reviews

One of the best 12 years around.

Aberlour 12 NCF is a very good single malt at a great price. It’s much better than the normal 12 Double Cask for only a couple dollars more. The nose and taste are characterized by baked cherry pie with the buttery pie crust sensations of NCF whisky, plums, vanilla spice, strawberry, caramel apples, some almonds (more on the palate than the nose), nutmeg, and fig newtons. It has a rich, smooth mouth feel that coats the palate as it transitions from the dominant sherry cask flavors to the bourbon cask fruits underneath. The finish is warming and medium in length, with fruit sweetness, a pleasant tart sensation, cinnamon spice, and a dash of oak. I think Aberlour 12 NCF is as good or better than four of the five batches of A’Bunadh that I have tried. It’s not quite a sherry bomb like A’Bunadh, but it’s profile works better with the spirit and casks of Aberlour. It’s my second favorite sherry cask regular dram, behind Macallan 12 sherry cask (US 86 proof version) and ahead of GlenDronach 12.

Excellent Dram

Wonderful sherried whisky, slightly more refined than the A’Bunadh in my opinion and only surpassed by the magical Macallan Cask Strength

Ethanol

After having a pour of this after Macallan and Glenlivet 12, it tasted like ethanol and burned the throat on the way down. No reason to give this another try.

Yummie

Gorgeous on the nose, with loads of sherry influence if nosed without adding water, really soft as well. After adding water the fruits are coming up a lot more, with mainly raisins and a mixture of warm and fresh apple.

On the palate there is a really sweet arrival, a bit spicy and a long slightly bitter finish, wonderful dram!
