Aberlour 10 year old review

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

Aberlour 10 year old single malt is matured in a combo of ex-bourbon and sherry casks. I guess I can say, it is a typical Speysider. Popular dram that has a good supply, it’s been exported to over fifty countries. Almost like Jack Daniel’s but with better quality of content.

LIFE IS SWEET with this dram

This Aberlour is like a good sweet drama comedy. Rich with laughter and seriousness – balancing nicely between two different worlds. Spicy, sweet and dry, nice dram.

Ralfy stated that “Aberlour seems to work best as a younger whisky rather than an older whisky”. I haven’t tasted any older Aberlours, but there might be a point when you look at the reviews A’bunadh is getting.

EDIT:
I revisited this dram while bumping into a great offer in the web. Purchased one bottle with 24€, which is an absolute bargain, when thinking about the quality of this dram.

I won’t be changing the score, but I rest my case with Aberlour 10YO single malt: it makes life feel sweet, even for a peathead like myself, who isn’t always capable of appreciating sherry matured whiskies. This Aberlour suits for me as well, and it certainly is not overpriced.

Matured in:
Ex-Bourbon and Ex-Sherry casks
Colour: Golden copper
Nose: Light and smooth. Sherry and tea are the main factors. Some toffee and dried fruits. Water brings the spices.
Taste: Spicy, fruity and sweet with sherry, malt and oak. Creamy and full. Hints of honey. Water makes the sweet sherry smoother and better.
Finish: Dry and oaky with malt and spices.
Balance: Lovely and rich. Very sophisticated sherry whisky. Give this one some extra time and explore it, it needs it.
