Mark,
Great easy drinking, a little on the sweet side
 
Daniel
Daniel,
I find this a bit bland. Trying very hard to find any flavours, but it works perfectly as a hot summers day whisky. I won’t buy this again but could recommend for beginners.
 
John
John,
Scotch was quite smooth, very slightly sweet, no smoke, very easy to drink.
 
Steve
Steve,
Very smooth and warming. Still exploring other brands, but I can see myself coming back ro this one. Normally I share my best bottles, but I am thinking of keeping this one to myself.
 
Brian
Brian,
Fantastic scotch. A great middle ground on the spectrum of peaty and airy flavor. As smooth as water. One of the best I've had to date.

Keith
Keith,
Not my absolute favorite of the Highland region. Subtle smoke and still smooth. Prefer Oban over this one but still good.
 
Chris
Chris,
Fantastic! Super smooth, with aromas of caramel and sherry. Palate is complex with stewed dark fruits, oak, vanilla, and slight baking spice. One of my favorite single malts.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
Lovely notes of Sherry, one of the smoothest sipping Scotch that I have ever happened.
 
Michael
Michael,
The notes of fruit combine with a highland smoothness to make this a most enjoyable dram.

ANDREOUS,
This is a very smooth Scotch, I found hints of vanilla and spice. Lovely as an afternoon neat drink.
 
Cristie
Cristie,
Very nice.
 
Steven
Steven,
One of my all time favorites. A bourbon lovers scotch. Sweet and spicy with some nice smoke at the end, and so smooth. Great intro to fine whisky for whiskey drinkers.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
A mellow, drinkable scotch. I really like Japanese whiskeys - which for me sit between bourbon and scotch - and this sat right on the border. More flavor and edge than a Japanese whiskey, but not over the top. Seems reasonably priced as well. I will buy it again.
 
Justine
Justine,
It goes down smooth, but the smoky aftertaste was not for me. Luckily, I have a good friend who likes it and drinks more of it than me.
 
James
James,
Very enjoyable. One of my preferred Scotch’s. Apple, vanilla, and spice on the nose and palate, with a nice hint of caramel as it sits on the tongue. Smooth and delicious. Will buy again.
 
Dale/Retha
Dale/Retha,
Loved it. The best Scotch I've tried so far. Smooth and delicious. Will buy again.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This is a decent whiskey but, to me, lacks an interesting flavor profile.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Smooth and warming. Apple and spice on the nose and palate, with a nice hint of caramel as it sits on the tongue.
 
Sudesh
Sudesh,
Very smooth from start to finish. Straight up is the only way to savour this dram. I personally enjoyed pairing it with some mildly spiced assortments.
 
Matt
Matt,
I’m getting more of the spicy and oak notes up front than dried fruit. At first taste this whisky is good, but not great.
 
Jay
Jay,
Love. Sweet, caramel and brown Sugar. Strong..
 
Rael
Rael,
Pretty good scotch with all the flavors need it to rate it that way, little smokiness and smooth.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Really enjoyed the flavor without being overpowered by peaty or smoke. Very smooth and will add to my scotch list.
 
David
David,
Very rich with deep flavors!
 
CJ
CJ,
Smooth non peaty scotch to enjoy anytime.

This is a decent bottle of Scotch that is not smokey or peaty and has a good amount of different flavor and spices happening. I am only dinging it for the price point. Also, Total Wines has the 18 version for about $115 and this one for $68. Shop around.
 
Edward
Edward,
One of the best in that price range and beats some of the higher costs brands.
 
Tracy
Tracy,
Smooth with a little bite at the end!
 
Joey
Joey,
I just got my bottle last week it is very good scotch. The only thing is I gave$ 86.00 last week for it now it's $110.00 the next week ???
 
Banyon
Banyon,
Perfect for all occasions, sweet, smooth and clean from start to finish. Even a layman will appreciate. The price point makes it even better, for a more refined palett don’t forget the Abundh at cask strength!
 
Mike
Mike,
Drank this then night before my wedding, savored the bottle with my closest friends and will never forget it. It has become a scotch I crave.
 
Paul
Paul,
The Aberlour line in general is a favorite of mine.
 
Marcus
Marcus,
Very good. Caramel taste stands out.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
personally I really like this drink. I am new to scotch and this has enough smoke and peat for me to know that this is not an american whiskey, but it is not overpowering. I know I can enjoy sipping this time and time again.
 
James
James,
You can really taste the sherry, at times it almost has a creamy taste and texture. Very good and diffrent in a good way.
 
guest
guest,
Great dram for sipping and super smooth! Would have given it 9 stars except Aberlour reduced the ABV
