Aberlour is a distillery we don’t get much of – one review and one BattleScotch in the past, one review coming up sometime this year. This Aberlour 6y is the youngest Aberlour we’ve had – this Advent set has a lot of variety in age.
Aberlour 6y seems to be offered exclusively through The Boutiquey Whisky Company. who make the Advent calendar, and isn’t mentioned on Aberlour’s own site.
Only so much you can say about a tiny little bottle, so here’s what we thought:
Dan – leather, peat, salt
Simon – apples, cherry, mash
Dan – spicy, rum candy, pepper, burnt baked apple
Simon – sweet, wood, hot
Dan – meh
Simon – clean, heat
Dan – chocolately & cocoa, smooth
Simon – very drinkable, smooth
Dan – 6/10
Simon – 7/10
Aberlour 6y Batch 8 Single Malt Scotch – 30ml 49.9% – ??? – Speyside
Try it? Yes. Buy it? No.
