Nosing: strong fruity nose, some nuts

Taste: Strong fruity taste, domination of sherry notes, nuts, sweet, gingerbread

Finish: Not to long but nice, sweet, honey, slightly spicy

Comment: This is very nice whisky, maybe not for a original price but worthy good occasion in supermarkets. The taste is strong and nicely balanced. I don't have comparision with other Aberlour's howevere I like this one. The sweatness is so fruity, great to have it with a cake.

Taste: SweetSweetFruitFruitSherry

Finish: SherrySherryFruitSweetDark 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: FruitSpicesSweetVanillaSherry
First comes the fruity,then I get a sweet and then comes the spicy.After that,a hint of vanilla is present,but its very subtile.Of course,all these are acompanied all the time by the proeminent sherry.
Taste: SherrySweetVanilla
The sherry hits at first,and its dominant all the way,and then sweetness comes along with a hint of vanilla.
Finish: Oak
The finnish is dominated by oaky flavour,and the sweetness is present,but very little.
Comment:
Overall a really good whisky,would recommend this to anyone,considering the ok price range.Would drink this again!
