Since I could not find any Aberlours for tasting in a bar, I used all of your reviews to guide me into just taking a chance, which paid off dearly, so thanks to all of you! This was my first Aberlour purchased and it won't be my last.

If you blindfolded a blend drinker and gave them this one and then asked to guess what kind of spirit it is, they would probably guess Caribbean rum. Maybe that is why I fell in love with all of the Aberlours, because they all remind me of my heyday of traveling throughout the Caribbean from 1988 to 1996. Specifically, if you can find Botran Solera 18 Anos de Guatemala on the shelf, just buy it, because this is the closest that I can describe the taste of the Three Aberlours. Sweet and rich, but not disgustingly so. Smoke is not there at all, so one would never guess that this is a single malt scotch. Double casking does the trick. Each sip just makes you want more.

Then sad but true, the other two Aberlours are rated better for this drinker.
