Tasting Notes

Doug McIvor

Taster

Nose: Beautifully mellow, sherryish, grassy with a little marzipan and mint toffee.

Palate: Enveloping, creamy and nutty with a teasing sherry and gentle peaty twist. Peppermint prickle.

Finish: Long, soothing, with a minty and spicy end.

Comment: A biggish-bodied Aberlour which helps to lengthen the complex effects of the double maturation.

Score: 9

Michael Jackson

Taster

Nose: Roses, candyfloss, slightly buttery.

Palate: Perfect balance of sherry and the malty, spicy, house character. The two elements are tightly combined, with the spicy flavours emerging slowly: nutmeg, aniseed and emphatic orange-flower.

Finish: Liquorice toffee. Mint.

Comment: Complex and sophisticated.

Score: 8.5
