Strong toffee notes. Pairs well with desserts, especially dark chocolate. Hints of dried fruit and spice, especially apples, grapes, and pears. The initial nose has that distinctive Aberlour dankness to it, but with some water and a few minutes, the toffee jumps out and hovers high above the glass. Deeper in the glass you'll find pepper, oak, and sherry. The palate hits you with butter, toffee, chocolate, dried fruit, and nuts. The finish is shorter than its complex nose would imply, but is very clean, with hints of apple, oak, and sherry. All in all, a great Speyside value.
