Aberlour means "the month of the chattering burn" in Gaelic and the distillery lies next to a wild mountain stream that flows into the Spey.
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 flavor.
A golden amber colored whisky with hints of ruby. The nose is soft and rounded, with fruity notes of red apple. The palate has a fine sherried character, balanced with rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness leading into a warm and lingering finish with both sweet and slightly spicy notes.
