Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Beautiful deep amber in the glass. Powerful aromas of peach, ripe apricot, and orange zest fill the nose along with more subtle notes of chocolate and toffee. On the palate, licorice, honey and cream ensnarl your taste buds with a touch of vanilla and lead into a long, smooth and honeyed finish. Outstanding. (Mar 2013)
Only the very best casks have been selected, ensuring a whisky of unsurpassed richness: it is by far the most indulgent Aberlour expression. A whisky of perfect structure, the ultimate expression of Aberlour.
Rich and complex, notes of toffee and butterscotch combine with ripe peach and bitter orange
Perfect structure. Initial notes of soft apricot and cream are offset by developing flavours of old leather and oak with a touch of honey
Very long and balanced, progresses from creme brulee to a gentle oak flourish
