Aberlour 16 Year

16 Years Old

Matured in a combination of sherry and bourbon oak casks then finished in new oloroso sherry casks to develop its generous and rewarding flavors. Nose is geraniums, with hints of sherry and orange. Gentle finish that is slightly spicy.

Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 14 in July 2013

Derek  •   •  3.0

Sweeter notes than its 12 year sibling. Raisins. Cherries. Citrus-y things. Mouth heat. Add a drop or two of water for a uniquely different flavor profile.

Todd H.  •   •  3.0

Some maple syrup and butter. Prune and white chocolate. Not sure if it's worth double the 12 year.
