Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Beginning with an incredible nose of dried cherries, ripe apricot, ripe plum and a a delicate floral bouquet of orange blossom, white flower and honeysuckle. Bold and rich mouthfeel with notes of honey, candied orange peel, vanilla, and a delightful touch of grain. The finish is intense and slightly sweet with subdued honeyed notes. (Mar 2013)
As with most Aberlour whisky, this 12 Year Old single malt has been matured in two types of cask. This double casking adds depth of character as well as balanced notes of fruits and spices.
Golden amber with hints of ruby red
Very soft and rounded with fruity notes of red apples
Sherried character and fruity aromas balanced with a rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness
Warming and lingering. Sweet and very slightly spicy
