Subtle and well balanced single malt with ex-Sherry cask influence. The citrus character of the new spirit is not overpowered but perfectly complemented and enriched by superlative use of ex-Sherry casks.
This whisky is hand-made from start to finish, with each batch being created from scratch. The whisky exhibits aromas of mixed spices, praline and spiced orange harmonising with rich, deep notes of Oloroso sherry.
The 16 Year Old Double Cask gives rich, dry scented floral and sweet raisin aromas with a spicy nuttiness followed by a smooth, full palate with plum and elegant oak.
Aberlour is the definitive example of a Single Malt crafted for excellence, rich and complex on the nose with toffee and butterscotch combine with ripe peach and bitter orange followed by a perfect structured palate with initial notes of soft apricot and cream are offset by developing flavours of old leather and oak with a touch of honey followed by a very long and balanced finish.
