An exceptional twleve-year-old Single Malt with Sherry influence.

There is some question about the exact date of its founding. But we know for certain that James Fleming either built or rebuilt the Aberlour Distillery in 1879. We also know that Aberlour makes an amazing range of Highland Single Malts in the classic Speyside style and we’d gladly sample ANYTHING that they send our way. And their Whiskies win lots of awards, taking home medals in every serious industry competition they enter.

Terms like “double cask” can be confusing. Sometimes it means that a spirit was aged first in one type of cask, then transferred to another. Other times — like we have here — if means that some of the Single Malt was aged in one type of cask and the rest aged in another before the two are married. Aberlour 12 Year Old Double Cask Matured has about half of its sprit aged in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks and the other half aged in Spanish Sherry butts. Both sides were aged for a full twelve years. Together they are an amazing dram of balanced, Speyside Single Malt wonder

Smartass corner: The name Aberlour refers to the distillery location near the Lour River near its confluence with the Spey River. “Lour” means noisy stream or burn, and “aber” means mouth. Thus, Aberlour roughly translates as “mouth of the noisy stream.”"

Mike,
I’m trying it for the first time and I really like it! I think it will be a stable in my bar.

guest,
I think it’s safe to say this is my favorite scotch. Falls somewhere in the middle of a good introduction to scotch and something more complex. For the money, hard to match.

Simple at first, but increasingly complex as you explore the flavors beyond the obvious sherry and honey... such as prunes, cane sugar, pepper, and tobacco.

Had a few rounds tonight with 2-3 rocks... pretty good. Smooth finish... didn’t feel extra special or sorts... would definitely keep one in my bar.

Has a bit of burn. Nice flavors come out with a bit of ice which also removes the burn. Has a sweet honey like taste but also a subtle smokiness

Very smooth, sweet tones with a pleasant finish.

Suavi,
This is on of my most favourite drinks. I'm not an expert in terms of grasping notes but if you are after a sweet, soft and smooth bottle, this is the one for you. Even the father in law approves!

Lots of length. Slightly spicy. Orange blossom. Burns going down.

Marques,
Very smooth. I personally like a bit more of a bite, and I've been gravitating more towards peat lately, so this isn't my absolute favorite, but it's still a very good dram. Well worth your time and money.
