    User Reviews of the Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask Matured

    Maybe a little bland

    This is a pleasant scotch, but it is a wee bit bland. Would be better with a higher alcohol content

    10th February 2015

    Grown up 10

    very smooth very pleasant
    a bit light on the nose and very much in the aberlour house style - extremely elegant sherry casking. a bit more ABV for the money is a fair request but then I see balkantines 17 at 40% going for £55. this rates as excellent value against that

    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.

    Sweet sixteen

    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)

    Boring and oddly bitter (sulfur candle?)

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

    1st February 2014


    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.

    31st January 2014

    prefer A'bunadh

    This is not a bad 16 yo whisky but after trying their A'bunadh range I would recommend it over this. A Glenlivet 15 is my preference at this price range.

    30th December 2013

    Reduction in ABV

    Can someone please explain why drinks giants like Pernod Ricard, owners of Aberlour, tend to reduce ABV in their products whenever they think they can get away with it. Aberlour 16 was bottled at a fairly miserable 43% but now released at a downright rock-bottom 40%. Surely a quality 16 year old malt deserves better presentation than this. The price goes up - the ABV comes down.

    Sulphur Alert !

    After really enjoying Aberlour's 10 and 12 year olds and loving their A'bunadh, I was expecting great things from this 16 year old. There some heavy tannins and bitter wood, but worst is the sulphur/carbolic soap on the nose and taste. I think Ralfy is right when he says the younger Aberlours are the best.

    Oh yeah stars!

    One of my favorites!
    Nose: Floral, spicy dried red fruits, a little nutty, caramel, and vanilla.
    Taste: Good sherry in the way of red fruits, dark chocolate, almonds. Sweet notes of brown sugar, vanilla, fall baking spices come in.
    Finish: Long with continued spiced fruits.
    In a quick summary delicious better than the 12 DC.
