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.
