Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Amber in the glass, this Scotch has a rich butterscotch aroma, with touches of fresh apple and tropical fruit. Look for dried fruit and Sherry upfront on the palate, with additional notes of vanilla and oak that hang on through the exceedingly long and rounded finish. Though it’s mouthcoating and oily, it’s also roughed up a bit by the high proof, giving it a drying edge on the close.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Warm and rich aromas are of honeyed stone fruit, earthy smoke and tropical flowers. On the palate it is elegant with flavors of cereal grains, soft caramel and a touch of spice. Incredibly soft, it is velvety in the mouth. (Apr 2014)
As with most Aberlour whisky, this 12 Year Old single malt has been matured in two types of cask. This double casking adds depth of character as well as balanced notes of fruits and spices.
Golden amber with hints of ruby red
Very soft and rounded with fruity notes of red apples
Sherried character and fruity aromas balanced with a rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness
Warming and lingering. Sweet and very slightly spicy
