Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - 43% bottling
Aberlour 10 year old is a huge seller in France, with owners Pernod-Ricard promoting it heavily. Selling off its popularity is a logical move, hence there's been a number of distillery releases exclusive to the French market. This 43% abv bottling is one (note that the more widely distributed equivalent was always a 40% bottling). The 16 year old echoes the flavours of Aberlour's 12 year old, but with both Sherry and Bourbon casks in the mix, combined with a higher ABV, it promises more depth.
Other reviews... Voluptuous and mouthwatering in some areas, firmer and less expansive in others. Pretty tasty in all of them. 88.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021
