Michael Jackson notes:
Colour Amber. Nose Full, malty, spicy, mint-toffee. Body Remarkably soft and smooth. Medium to full. Palate Distinctively clinging mouth-feel, with long-lasting flavour development. Dry, cookie-like notes, malty sweetness, mint, nutmeg and berry-fruit. Finish lingering, smooth, aromatic, clean.
The house style for the Aberlour distillery is: Soft, medium to heavy, nutty, spicy (nutmeg?), sherry-accented. After dinner.
