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.

Marcus
Marcus,
Very good. Caramel taste stands out.
Ryan
Ryan,
personally I really like this drink. I am new to scotch and this has enough smoke and peat for me to know that this is not an american whiskey, but it is not overpowering. I know I can enjoy sipping this time and time again.

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.
