Aberlour 16 Double Cask Matured. Image courtesy Chivas Brothers. This Aberlour has good spices on the nose, with raisin bread, cinnamon, honey, nutmeg, honey, figs, and a hint of pine needles. The taste is very spicy with cinnamon and chili pepper notes that dominate, then fade slowly to reveal raisins, fig cookies, and honey notes that last through the finish, along with a touch of dried flowers.
