Aberlour 12 Year Double Cask Matured

Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland

3.75 out of 5 stars
The Aberlour 12 double cask matured was one the earliest bottles in my collection, so it's a nostalgic favourite. While it's not particularly complex, its smoothness and familiarity is like a solid friendship that you don't have to overthink. The nose features a confident sherry with citrus notes. Your first sip opens a rush of spices and honey with a warming mouthfeel (+ tongue tingle!) that transitions into a dry oak and apple finish. Enjoyable without ice. 8/10.
