For my taste, Aberfeldy 12 year old was way too delicate in every way. Of course the 40% ABV level causes some of the delicateness but it doesn't explain the whole story. Aberfeldy 12 yrs had the feel like someone had added too much water in it.
The Waterboy has struck this one, literally. Like watching an Adam Sandler movie at it's worst. No character, no edges whatsoever.
Nose: Like scenting a fruity but delicate perfume. The nose is so soft, you can hardly detect it. Hints of honey and floral notes.
Taste: Very sweet and syrupy and a bit spicy.
Finish: Crispy oranges clash with spices in a dry and oaky manner.
Balance: One the most delicate single malts I've tasted. Finish being the best part but it can't save the whole palate which lacks character way too much.
