The 12 year-old expression is a fine example of how the distinctively crisp, citrus character of Aberlour’s new distillate 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.
The Look is Golden Amber. The Aroma is Rich with Tangy Orange, Glazed Cherries and Notes of Ginger. The Taste is Sweet with Apples, Peaches, Cinnamon and a Touch of Spicy Liquorice. The Finish is Smooth and Sweet with a Hint of Spice. The Deed is in the Tasting. 48% vol 750ml Scottish Single Malt Whisky
