The French Priority. 

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.

Originally only sold on the French market, Aberlour 18 was released for general consumption in 2008. This is a full bodied and richly sumptuous expression, combining mellow vanilla with a fruity spiciness. In its lucrative past is has won Gold as well as Best in Class in the International Wine and Spirits Competition. But since it was chosen from only the finest casks, it really is no wonder.

For the price you will not find a smoother sherry, a staple in my bar.
