The Original Aberlour.

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 A’bunadh is made in batches, and each batch is made by hand. It’s a cask strength Scotch Whisky that has achieved cult status among Whisky connoisseurs (and others). In Gaelic, A’bunadh means The Original, it’s a homage to Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming, produced using traditional methods without chill filtration or other modern processes. This fantastic Speysider was matured in Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts, and comes with an exceedingly high ABV. Powerful, POWERFUL.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
