REVIEW: Aberlour Scotch
Nose” (undiluted): Cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon sticks. “Palate” (undiluted): Initial spiced dark currants, cherry, over-ripe black grapes, transitions mid-palate to a teensy weensy bit raw, unadulterated alcohol. Brackish water comes to mind. “Finish” (undiluted): Some smoke. A little green and a tinge of bitterness accompanies the taste of sherry and oak at the end.
