TYPE Single Malt
COLOR Dark amber
NOSE Surprisingly potent, singed my nose hairs a bit. Not a lot of aroma though. Just alcohol.
PALATE Salty sea spray, green apple and a hint of toffee.
FINISH Doesn’t really have much of one to be honest. You get an alcoholic aftertaste but its not particularly flavoursome.
68 out of 100
NOTES I don’t know if I get a defective bottle but after writing up my tasting notes for this Aberlour 10 Year Old, I looked it up online and I’m seeing people talking about tasting vanilla and noting sweet aftertastes. What the?
This is a rather sour tasting whisky that you have to be in the right mood for. I can certainly pick up traces of other flavours but the bitterness and strong taste of alcohol makes it difficult to appreciate the more subtle tones. I enjoyed the Aberlour A’bunadh a lot more than the ten year old.
