- ABV 40%
Matured for a minimum of 15 years in a combination of sherry and bourbon oak casks then finished in new oloroso sherry casks to develop its generous and rewarding flavours, the classic signature notes of Aberlour can be discovered and enjoyed in this outstanding Highland malt.
Tasting Notes: Deep red gold in colour. Nose of toffee and melted butter with a hint of smoke. The body is at first firm, while the palate displays a wonderful balance of sherry nuttiness and malty, woody sweetness with distinct orange flower overtones. Unusual finish with spice and mint apparent. Soft but warming and then finally dry. One of the highlights of the Aberlour range.
'Wave upon wave of malt concentrate...
Quite unique, freaky, even.' 91 points.

Other reviews... Rich amber-gold hue. Sweet stone fruit and lush smoky malt aromas jump from the glass. Very smooth and full-bodied with enveloping fruity caramel and vanilla flavors. Finishes with a long, elegant, rancio-tinged finish that displays a fine malt character. Powerful yet very balanced and harmonious.

More about the distillery…The distillery which was founded on its current site by James Fleming in 1879 is not open to the public. (However, visitors are welcomed by appointment during the Speyside Whisky Festival). The village ‘Aberlour’ (Gaelic for Mouth of the Chattering Burn) became nationally famous in the 19th century for its Orphanage. The town has preserved much of its historical character. Original houses, built of stones taken from the bed of the Spey, mingle with more recent buildings and landscaped public gardens. Aberlour's spectacular setting on the banks of the Spey makes it easy to see what made it such an attractive place to found a community and a distillery. The pack horse bridge over the Lour and the remains of the famous Aberlour Orphanage can still be seen in the village, which makes an ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Aberlour is also a highly sought after salmon angling spot and the home of Walkers’ shortbread.
Built alongside the Lour burn, the Aberlour distillery uses pure spring water that rises through peat and granite from Ben Rinnes. The St Drostan Well stone was erected to mark the location of the spring, which was used by St Drostan to baptise the local population in the 7th century, and is also featured on Aberlour’s label. Folklore, legend and the smooth delight of Aberlour malt whisky have been traditional fireside companions through many a long winter night in these parts. Today Aberlour 10 year old is available in over 40 countries. Other bottlings are available in selected markets and duty free.
