After reviewing some blends I'm now moving on to some classic Speyside malts starting with the 10yo Aberlour.
The nose is quite prominent with fresh pear dominating the dram with sweet spearmint and pepper in the background. Nice but fairly uncomplexed and lacks some finesse.
The palate is featuring dry fresh oak, sweet mint, green fruits and cucumber. Almost like a minty fruit salad.
The finish is too short and not very engaging with bitter minty oak.
Would probably gain on some sherry cask influence. Since Aberlour feature this in there range I guess they thought the same. Will probably review the 12yo double cask matured next time I'm going for an Aberlour.
