Aberlour single malts are made from expertly crafted new spirit, usually double cask matured for at least 12 years in the finest hand-picked Oloroso Sherry butts and first fill Bourbon casks. When judged ready for bottling, the subtly different flavours of the whisky from each type of cask are orchestrated into a distinguished range of rich, rewardingly complex single malts. For people who know whisky, the result is an unusually engrossing, many-layered experience.
Aberlour 12YO whisky is rich and sweet. This Scotch malt whisky is aged in sherry barrels. These however, do not suppress its citrus character, but to the contrary wonderfully complement it. Before bottling each barrel must pass a sniff test by the producer.
