Review: Aberlour 100

aberlour-100Available only in duty-free shops (if that any more), this, like the aforereviewed Glenfarclas 105 is “100” only in the old 175-proof-is-max scale: By modern standards it’s 114.2 proof, so take appropriate precautions should you find yourself face to face with a bottle.

It’s certainly worth the hunt. This surprisingly dark whisky packs lots of malt and intense sweetness, wrapping a honey core around very traditional whisky notes. Despite the proof, it’s not nearly as hot as you’d expect: I found myself sipping on this one, sans water, with no problem whatsoever. Full of interesting flavors, it’s one I’d love to go back to… should the chance ever present itself again.
