Aberlour which translates to “mouth of the chattering burn (aka a tributary)" in Gaelic, is a humble distillery located in the heart of Speyside where the Lour Burns joins the River Spey. This expression from the Distillery Aberlour which has been producing whisky since 1812, is a 16 year-old single malt Scotch and is matured in both ex-bourbon barrels and oloroso sherry butts before being bottled at 86 proof.

Tasting Notes

"The aromas pour forth with a rich and creamy nose of sweet juicy raisins, bold spice, mild oak and a prominent nuttiness. The mouth speaks of balance between the two finishes, first of ripe plum and a delicate nuttiness, the second of vanilla, toasted oak and delicate baking spices. This whisky draws a seductively long finish of honey, spice, vanilla and dried dark fruits, which will keep you longing for another sip."
