  • Aberlour 10 Year old - With whisky like this Life Is Sweet

    By Rantavahti on 28th Aug 20142014-08-28T05:29:00

    Aberlour 10 yrs is a typical Speysider. Not an average whisky, better than okay. Like a nice and sweet drama comedy. Gives you laughter with some serious stuff as well. Nose: Sherry and tea are the main… read more

    Nice sherry finished Speyside malt. Nice nose, reasonable complexity,short finish of honey, vanilla, hints of spice. Not a bad think to say for price and a good choice for every day dram and a great … read more

  • Aberlour A'bunadh Batch No. 47 - Cult of Personality

    By talexander on 12th Aug 20142014-08-12T23:54:00

    89

    Most cult whiskies encompass entire distilleries, either alive (Ardbeg, Macallan) or, usually, dead (Port Ellen, Pappy Van Winkle, Brora, Rosebank, etc). But Aberlour A'bunadh is perhaps the only one … read more

    By Uisgebetha on 13th Jun 20142014-06-13T08:00:00

    This is just high calibre sherried malt. Simple as that. Nose: Sherry, buttered toast and lots of fruit, grape, apricot and plums. Taste: Buttery dry sherry and touches of smoke and cocoa. Finish: … read more

  • Aberlour 12 Year old Double Cask Matured - The weakest Aberlour I’ve tasted

    By Uisgebetha on 13th Jun 20142014-06-13T07:58:00

    Probably the weakest Aberlour I’ve tasted. How can a whisky lose character from 10 to 12 years old, unless they just foist lower grade casks onto the “travel” market. This bottle was duty free. Nose: … read more

    A beautifully balanced younger malt. Lots of flavour development right through to the finish. Nose: Sweet sherry, fruity with apple skins and touch of honey. Taste: sherry and apples again a hint of… read more

    I’ve now sufficiently analyzed this malt, enough to be worthy of at least a few separate reviews. But I’ve distilled it all here. Why the deep analysis? 2 basic reasons: Wanting to make up for a sh… read more

  • Aberlour A'bunadh - Orgasm In A Bottle

    By SimeonSanchez on 12th Apr 20142014-04-12T23:30:00

    96

    It has a rich, ruddy, Bourbon-like color. The nose is extremely pleasant: strawberry, dried fruit and caramelized citrus. There is no trace of peat. Without water, it hits the tongue like a mallet of… read more

  • Aberlour A'bunadh - batch 45

    By AndyC on 27th Feb 20142014-02-27T00:03:00

    BOOM! For me, this is a whisky that makes you smile and say 'ah, this is how whisky should be'. Not subtle, but full of flavour and warmth, and lovely to drink with only a reasonably little splash of … read more

  • Aberlour 12 Year old Double Cask Matured - Good sherry

    By vrudy6 on 23rd Feb 20142014-02-23T15:55:00

    When I first opened it there was a over-ripen grapes flavor that was a bit overwhelming. It also contained strong bourbon notes. Over time ( at about 2/3 of the bottle), it settled and a velvety vanilla,… read more
