Color: amber.

Nose: orange zest and red delicious apples with a hint of vanilla. Subtle but quite nice.

Body: same creamy fullness I expect from Aberlour.

Palate: oaky toffee sweetness with a good deal of peppery cinnamon spice. Quite good and very satisfying.

Finish: long, warm, and spicy, with a lingering aftertaste of chocolate covered raisins and bananas. I think I might like this finish more than the A'bunadh.

I'd been craving Aberlour but wanted to try something other than the A'bunadh, and this was $10 cheaper. I was not disappointed. This is a fantastic whisky. The lightness of the nose belies the punch of the spirit. This is a powerhouse 12-year. If you like Aberlour, I suspect you'll like this.

Great Review. I love Aberlour. I've only had the 12yr DC and the 16yr DC. I haven't had the glory of having this or the A'bunadh. Yet. Anyway.

Must try this, I'm a big A'b fan but the 48% on this may be a nice change. The 18yo as smooth as it is lacks a bit of power for my taste buds. Thanks for the review.

I like this better than the A'bunadh.
