Aberlour 10 yr old 40%

Tried this several times before in different contexts— indeed I'm sure I've had a bottle in my collection at various times— and always considered the entry level Aberlour a safe-but-boring option. Sherried, sweet, but a bit simple.

Actually on this tasting (one of the miniatures) I think it's better than that. No idea whether this represents my better honed palate, or an improvement in recent bottlings, but... it's not just sherry and sugar, there are spices and honey there too and a smoother, more complex finish than I remember. 

So: very pleasant. Also cheap and widely available.
