A pleasant burn.

The waters in these parts of Speyside are known not only for their purity but also for their healing powers according to druid priests that lived there in times of the Celts. Later, they used the same water to baptise them into Christianity. So it is no wonder they used nature's best and produced a fantastic product. What is better to make from water than Scotch Whisky!?

True to this legacy and heritage, young James Fleming, a farmer's son who supplied grain to local distilleries had a dream to build a perfect distillery in the 19th century. A daring modernist as he was, he did not let anything differ from his expectations. And his dream of the perfect dram lives to this day, in the Aberlour distillery.

Aberlour 12 Year Old Double Cask is matured in two kinds of casks, in ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon for at least 12 years and then “married” together for a short period before bottling. A heavy, brooding malt that is warming with lashes of Sherry, dark fruits and wood smoke that is not to be trifled with. Definitely one of the best value Speyside malts around.

Very smooth, with a hit of peat smoke flavor and really nice floral

Very nice

David,
Sweet and floral on the nose. Less sweet and somewhat of an earthy flavor on the palette. I was waiting for something to excite me but it never came about. I might order it at a bar but I wouldn't own a bottle.

Smooth and sweet. Fairly light and does not coat the tongue as much as other scotches I've had. Honey flavors.
Pierce
Pierce,
Smooth but fiery, with a little smoke and none of the caramel notes you sometimes get in a highland. Nevertheless, a good everyday scotch.

Great finish and smoke flavor throughout. Hints of spice and Carmel with a superb body that catches your attention. One fine Speyside Scotch.
