The French Priority. 

The waters in these parts of Speyside are known not only for their purity but also for their healing powers according to druid priests that lived there in times of the Celts. Later, they used the same water to baptise them into Christianity. So it is no wonder they used nature's best and produced a fantastic product. What is better to make from water than Scotch Whisky!?

True to this legacy and heritage, young James Fleming, a farmer's son who supplied grain to local distilleries had a dream to build a perfect distillery in the 19th century. A daring modernist as he was, he did not let anything differ from his expectations. And his dream of the perfect dram lives to this day, in the Aberlour distillery.

Originally only sold on the French market, Aberlour 18 was released for general consumption in 2008. This is a full bodied and richly sumptuous expression, combining mellow vanilla with a fruity spiciness. In its lucrative past is has won Gold as well as Best in Class in the International Wine and Spirits Competition. But since it was chosen from only the finest casks, it really is no wonder.

Best damn dram

Dynamite. Better than most 18 years. Only up there with HP 18 and a few others. It got better as time went by. Buy it

Oskari,
Superiorly smooth - however complex, just what you’d want in a 18 year old. However not as bity as some other Aberlours.

Caramel and oaky deliciousness. One of the best 18 year speysides out there.

Jeremy,
This is a smooth sherry bomb, woody oak. Complex and very well balanced. Love everything about this one. Really at the top of my list.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Very good. Vapors were light, the barrel notes came through. Hint of sweet, vanilla. No peat / smoke. Carmel notes. Easy on the throat.

A lot of peat!!!! 16 year is better
 
George
George,
It's good but nowhere near as good as the a'bunadh and in my opinion definitely not worth the price premium over the 12 year

Very smooth. Tastes like chocolate and honey. The best single malt I've tasted.
 
Banyon
Banyon,
The best of the bunch! The two additional years add a refined balance. This dances across the tongue when sipping neat, any way else would be an abomination.
