Please refer to my review of Aberlour 16, which was my first Aberlour bought.

I held off buying this one thinking that it would never be as good as the 16 year old. How wrong I was! Compared to the 16 year old, this one is unbelievably smoother. I cannot explain the subtle harshness in the 16 year old which lets it's little brother here win, but that's all right with me and my wallet! For the money, one simply cannot beat this one. However, if you are looking for a definitive single malt scotch taste, look elsewhere. This one tastes more like fine Demerara rum than scotch.
