Aberlour 14 Year Old Double Cask Matured Batch #4

Aberlour is a distillery of Speyside located in Aberlour, Strathspey, Scotland at the confluence of the rivers Lour and Spey near Ben Rinnes. Rather than boasting about the distinctive qualities of his single malt, Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming remained true to his family’s motto since the days of Robert the Bruce, ‘Let the deed show.’ The proof is in the drinking.
Aberlour’s truly unique taste is derived from two fundamentally important ingredients: pure, soft water of the Ben Rinnes and barley, grown within 15 miles of the distillery. Most of the variants are aged in American ex-bourbon casks, a standard for many single malts Aberlour also releases a range of malts that, after aging in bourbon casks, are finished in casks previously used to mature varieties of fortified wines or sherries, a method applied to appeal particularly to the French market.

Aberlour 14 Year Old is an individual batch release that combines the makers careful craft with a deep understanding and respect for the natural maturation process. This Single Malt has been matured in two different casks: American oak and Spanish sherry. Their rich flavours infused the whisky overtime delivering just the right balance of depth and flavour.

    Nose:    Well balanced with sweet vanilla and ripe sherry.

    Taste:    Round and smooth with soft caramel, blackberry jam and subtle spice.

    Finish:    Long, sweet and perfectly balanced.
