Aberlour 16 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #620104 90-95 points Wine Enthusiast

 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.  (12/ 2009)

90 points Whisky Advocate

 More subtle and complex than the new 12 year old, and not as sweet. Creamy in texture and floral on the nose, with dried vanilla, gentle spice, nectarine, kiwi, plum, and lemon gum drops. Soft, elegant finish with a hint of mint. Great balance of a variety of flavors and lots of finesse. A well-crafted whisky! (Vol. 17, #2)

K&L Notes

At age 16, the Aberlour seems to possesses maturity that may appeal to a broad spectrum of whisky fans. An aroma as fresh as fresh-baked apple pie isn't come by easily in whisky; the blend of "traditional" and sherry casks helps--but the vibrant fruitiness of the Aberlour 16 is a phenomenon that demands to be experienced directly.

Apple pie is right--or more like hot apple cider, for me. Warm, spicy holiday punch, with ginger and cinnamon and delicious, caramel and apple flavor. Not as hot and spicy as the A'Bunadh, the dignified Aberlour 16 is a rich, smooth, and delightful companion to, say, a good book; to be sipped and savored.

What would you expect from this great distillery who's popularity keeps growing and growing? Classic speyside- the 16 year is especially rich and malty, with salted caramel flavors and a long, pure finish. Decadent and delicious!
Drink from 2013 to 3013
