Review #5 Aberlour 12 Double Cask:

My first Aberlour review, more on the way:

Aberlour 12 YO Double Cask 43% $31.99 Superior Liquors, Superior Co.
Color: Rich Copper
Nose: Malt, Fruit, Sherry, Raisins, Spice, Soap
Taste: Warm, Fruity, Spicy, Butter, Toffee
Finish: Syrup, Creamy
With Water: It took on a strange cardboard aroma with toothpaste.
Tasted minty with the water, ( perhaps the toothpaste?)
Overall a very nice sherried scotch, and less expensive alternative to MaCallan with some similar taste profiles. I enjoyed it very much, as did my wife, and she is not a big scotch fan.
Value: 10
Uniqueness: 3
Buy again: 4
Total 85/100
