A pleasant burn.

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 better thing to make from water than 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 12 Year Old Double Cask is matured in two kinds of casks, in ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon for at least 12 years and then "married" together for a short period before bottling. A heavy, brooding malt that is warming with lashes of Sherry, dark fruits and wood smoke that is not to be trifled with.

Definitely one of the best value Speyside malts around.
