Aberlour 12 yo
Traditional oak casks encourage the subtle character of Aberlour to develop, whilst the Sherry oak casks add hints of ruby gold colour and a deep and rich flavour to the whisky.
The 12 year-old expression is a fine example of how the distinctively crisp, citrus character of Aberlours raw spirit is deftly softened by double cask maturation. Traditional oak and seasoned Sherry butts are both used to great effect, as the mellowed spirits within are combined to deliver a subtly balanced flavour.
Colour: Golden amber with hints of ruby.
Nose: Soft and rounded, with fruity notes of red apple.
Palate: A fine sherried character, balanced with rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness.
Finish: Warming and lingering sweet and slightly spicy.
