Aberlour 10 years old is an award winning whisky, ideal for beginners, with some sherried spiciness. A traditional offering from Speyside, it has been matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks. An easy drinking single malt whisky, it is so popular that this bottling has been exported to over fifty countries.
Nose: Sweet and full. Sherried raisins, hints of toffee and a pleasant nuttiness.
Palate: Quite full-bodied, spicy rich fruitcake, toffee notes and a creamy malty-feel and the vaguest whisper of something akin to synthetic banana.
Finish: Caramel and honey, the malt still evident and the sweet spices still linger.
Overall: Lovely and rich.
