The sweet and spicy

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.

Matured in two different casks, this is a complex and rich dram. It is fruity and spicy with a little hint of sweetness from the thick, oak wood. The barrels play a massive part in the finished product and can be tasted in a sweet oakyness with a good amount of spice on top.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

James,
You can really taste the sherry, at times it almost has a creamy taste and texture. Very good and diffrent in a good way.
