In this case 15 Years!

Aberlour Speyside Single Highland Malt 15 Years Old Scotch Whisky  

The Aberlour 10 Years Old was my first Single Malt Scotch Whisky back in 1993(?) and its 18 Years Old made me fall in love with whisky. It appears that 15 Years Old is now travel exclusive (i.e., Duty Free). If I recall correctly, I traded 6 bottles of wine for this bottle (I really wanted that 18 YO though!emoji)

After ageing for 14 years in both bourbon and sherry casks, this Single Malt is blended and finished for 1 year in Oloroso Sherry casks to add depth and complexity. 40% abv

COLOUR:  Deep dark gold amber with copper from the sherry casks.

AROMA:  Macintosh toffee caramel, candied orange peel; hint of smoke on the nose.

TASTE:  Up front bourbon sweetness, malty, stewed autumn fruits, cinnamon spice, touch of nutmeg marmalade on the palate with sherry spiciness and touch of nuttiness.

FINISH:  The spice lingers on the long warming finish.
