A classic Speyside single malt, matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks. Gold in color with a dry, fruit nose. Smooth and creamy, with spicy-sweet nutmeg and honey combining with the dewy freshness. GOLD MEDAL - 2009 SAN FRANCISCO WORLD SPIRITS
We tasted Aberlour 12 Year at Meeting No. 14 on July 25, 2013. We rated it 2.67 out of 5. Aberlour 12 Year ranks 34th overall in Scotch.
Starts with sweet notes. Ends with smoke. Notes of sweet dried fruit. Drinkable for the budget conscious. Unquestionable bourbon roots.
Delightful nose, very drinkable. Definitely sherry sweet tones. Light caramel undertones.
Many of the typical Speyside characteristics. Light and sweet. Not a huge profile.
Carmel + fig/tree fruit nose. It's a loud or bourbon-y alcohol up front but then mellows to a nice sweet sugary finish. I like this as it's not trying that hard and would make a great party whisky.
More ex-sherry butts than ex-bourbon cask. In fact it tastes a little bit like partially wiped sherry butt, and I'm talking about a girl I know not the dessert wine. Also a hint of boat paint and lacquer.
