The Select Cask line from Aberlour are hand-selected whiskies aged in a mix of either ex-bourbon or ex-sherry butts. The whiskies are then married together before bottling. Originally, this product was only available in the French market, but has since been released in the UK.

Tasting Notes

"This is a slow to get going whisky, but once it has an opportunity to sit in the glass for just a minute, it really opens up. The dark sherried notes come through on the nose, but also checking in for a visit are honey, orange peels, and cooked apples. Some dark chocolate and cinnamon appear and chewy oak tannins arrive fashionably late to the party. "
