My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Raisins, apple strudel, toffee, orange zest, cinnamon.
Palate: Pretty much exactly like the nose, with some nutmeg and pepper sneaking in.
Finish: Long fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: Quite gentle in character, not really an aroma bomb, simply a pleasant middle-aged malt where the wood is beginning to be noticeable
Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Buy Aberlour 16 yo from Master of Malt
