Aberlour 12 Year Double Cask Matured Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
40% ABV, 750 ml
The 12 year-old expression is a fine example of how the distinctively crisp, citrus character of Aberlour’s raw spirit is deftly softened by double cask maturation. Traditional oak and seasoned Sherry butts are both used to great effect, as the mellowed spirits within are combined to deliver a subtly balanced flavour.
Pouring golden amber with hints of ruby, the nose is soft and with fruity aromas and red apples. A fine sherried character, the palate is balanced with rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness, culminating in a rich and slightly spicy finish.
