This 12-year-old Speysider appears to be the tamed version of the excellent Aberlour A'bunadh, even though it is a vatting of both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry matured whisky. Fresh, citrusy and a little bit shy at first nosing, the aroma unfolds with tropical fruits, cloves and hints of marzipan. Despite its low ABV, the taste is surprisingly strong and fruity-spicy with lots of blueberries, plums and ginger. The finish is of medium length with notes of milk chocolate, baked apple and wood tannins. An easily accessible and quite affordable Single Malt with character.

Nosing:Fruit Fruit Sweet Sweet Sweet Vanilla Sherry

Taste: Sweet Sweet Fruit Fruit Sherry

Finish: Sherry Sherry Fruit Sweet Dark Chocolate

Comment: sweet on the nose, no discernible fruit, but definitely fruity. The taste is initially VERY sweet, becomes creamy and fills the mouth, very pleasant with just a hint of bitter chocolate on the finish, followed by an intense dryness. Overall I found it very sippable and pleasing. Very enjoyable. My first single malt scotch outside of Glenfiddich. I’m very glad I bought it.

Nosing: not intense Oak Fruit Nuts Sherry Sweet

Taste: Sweet Vanilla Caramel Sherry Dried Fruit Malt

Finish: not so intense but long and pleasant "leather" with a cigarette

Comment: A decent, well balanced, intense but not overrun overall taste, not so complex but a true Scoth whisky with no hidden surprises, smooth and without any alcohol attack on tongue or palate. I matched my tasting experience similar smelling a true leather coat, that has both that gentlemen and rogue effect. After Aberlour 12 we opened 4 more other single malts, but came back to this batch Aberlour to recognize its quality, but not that intense in aromas compared to those others bottles. One more interesting thing about this whisky. When you smoke while drinking it, the finnish become quite an interesting journey. New smokey notes appear that brings more leather notes (that I usually seek) to that finnish... Did not experinced this much brilliant change in aftertaste with any other whisky yet, so for me this was a winner with half a packet of cigarettes on that night... Next bottle will be a more aged Aberlour surely, hoping for even a more intense leather long finnish.
Almost forgot. The price was cca USD47 in beverage wholesale which is a winner for this brilliant nectar
