Aberlour 16 Year Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
94 Points, Excellent, Highly Recommended, 2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge "It opens with sherried notes of dried fruit and dark chocolate. Cereal sweetness and honey comes through on the palate alongside fruity and nutty notes. A seductive salinity on the finish."
"The bouquet is austere and leathery with curious aromas of beeswax, vegetable oil and oaky resin. Palate entry is focused on the resin; midpalate is splendidly multilayered and offers elements of black pepper, dried orange blossom, honeysuckle, dried fruit, sage, fennel and confections. Aftertaste is deep and unabashedly sweet and honeyed." Wine Enthusiast 92 Points
