Before I moved to Nowhere, ON I was a conspicuous consumer of the Aberlour 10. At $45 it was the best tasting value out there. But I moved up here and it fell out of the regular rotation. I’d get it when I could and I’d become a fan of the 12 year old bottle too. On my last trip to Ottawa I picked up a bottle of each, seriously intending to savour them for the purposes of recording them for posterity on this blog.
That didn’t happen. Those bottles were gone within the week.
I then went to New Brunswick for a vacation and found that the Aberlour 16 has been hiding out there! But that was gone before the week was out and I never recorded anything.
So, quickly. Aberlour is an awesome scotch. Trust me. The 10 is a bit fruitier than I remember. The 12 is mellow goodness. And I really can’t remember much about the 16. But I know I’ll try them all again and I’ll try and take it a little slower when I do.
