Very nice on nose and palate but not quite on eye level with other batches, especially the finish. – Rating: 84/100

This is a very decent daily dram with nice rich flavours though it is not not overly complex.

A few drops of water open it up a bit, but this dram does not give away a great deal of flavours. It is all very subdued. – Rating: 78/100

A surprisingly strong density of flavours makes this a very enjoyable sherried entry level dram. – Rating: 84/100

Aberlour A’bunadh Batch 41

June 21, 2012

Water unleashes the demons. I tasted many wonderful a’Bunadhs, but this batch should never have been bottled. – Rating: Neat: 68/100, with water: 45/100

Having a strong and very nice old-fashioned sherry nose, the whisky calms down quite a bit on the palate, leaving a slightly watery feeling. – Rating: 83/100

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

Aberlour 14 yo Duncan Taylor NC2

December 13, 2011

The very fresh and enjoyable nose is countered by a rather disappointing palate. The finish is not very convincing either. Not the best casks went into this bottling. – Rating: 73/100

Aberlour 1990/2010 The Whisky Cask

October 4, 2011

Stripped from its trademark sherry influence, this Aberlour is a great opportunity to taste the plain distillery style. – Rating: 86/100

Aberlour 1992/2010 Cooper’s Choice

March 26, 2011

An unusal bourbon cask bottling of Aberlour. It is very spicy in an aromatic sense and still remarkably smooth and gentle. The liquorice note is rather prominent. – Rating: 83/100

A typical a’Bunadh with a very good balance of fruit and spice as well as youth and maturity. – Rating: 87/100

This batch is not as fruity as others I have tasted. The emphasis is more on the dry spicyness that makes it a very complex and enjoyable dram. – Rating: 86/100

Quite sweet and spicy, I remember earlier batches that were more on the fruity side. But it’s a very nice whisky. – Score; 87/100

Aberlour Sherry Cask Matured 12 yo

July 19, 2009

A solid and well-balanced sherry cask malt of the milder kind – Score: 83/100
