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.”"

Character Dogson
Aberlour specialized in producing Scotch Whiskies for the French market for decades. Some say that's why their single malt has a distinct, Cognac-like character to this day.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
