Aberlour is renowned for their sweet and spicy, sherried malts. Using a combination of ex-oloroso sherry and ex-bourbon casks for ageing their whisky, the Aberlour 10 is full of the rich fruit cake notes we have come to expect of Speyside malts.
Appearance: Light copper.
Nose: Orange peel, raisins and vanilla.
Taste: Toasted oak, caramel with baked apple notes.
Finish: Sweet sherry wine notes with spice.
Overall: Great entry level malt, young and light but still quintessentially Speyside.
This is very much a scotch equivalent of a bike with training wheels on it. Highly recommend buying this malt for someone who hasn’t had much experience with whisky but is curious to try. The price point is very reasonable, so if they don’t end up taking to whisky like a fish to water, it’s not a massive loss and I’m sure you can happily help them polish off the bottle.
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Aberlour 10 you could also try Macallan 12 Sherry Oak, Dalmore 12 or Glenfarclas 10.
Scotch whisky is a very broad category consisting of various styles, regions and production methods. It is unclear whether Ireland or Scotland was the first to produce whisky but it is likely that the practice became common in both countries concurrently. It is commonly thought that the knowledge of distillation was brought to Scotland (and Ireland) by monks returning from the Mediterranean and the Middle East in around 1000AD.
