John Hansell at The Malt Advocate wrote, Once again, the sherry is prominent throughout, with its lush fruit, velvety texture, and sweet demeanor. But it's not cloying or sappy, Rich, silky smooth, satisfying finish. Very impressive. The Aberlour 18 year old's reputation remains intact!: 91pts. And from Tom Canavan, A lovely, confident, satisfying, after-dinner Aberlour. Sherried Speyside at its best.
