Aberlour 12-year. It's like getting the Balvenie 12-year Signature, for $25 less. Ample bourbon and sherry notes, with a hearty, healthy, voluptuous body. I don't really care much for Glenlivet, its sister distillery-- but this one is a real "sleeper!"
My sentiments as well. I still have a few Aberlour 10's around and hit the 12 regularly as well. But it's the 16 that really kills me every time. That whole line is really terrific if you don't mind a bit of sherry in the mix. Great stuff!
