Aberlour 12 Years Old Non Chill-Filtered Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Aberlour Distillery was founded in 1879, choosing a location that not only provided a sure supply of pure spring water that flowed over the pink granite of Ben Rinnes, but also a place rooted in ancient times and noted for its magical relationship with water.
Steeped in centuries of legend and surrounded by the dramatic Highland scenery of Ben Rinnes, the village of Aberlour lies at the very heart of Speyside, where the Lour burn joins the River Spey. The exceptionally pure, soft spring water used for making Aberlour whisky is drawn from nearby natural springs.
No whisky was chillfiltered in the making of this Aberlour, keeping all the flavour from the cask in the whisky, not the filter. It is a 12 year old expression of Highland single malt Scotch whisky with an absolutely gorgeous amber hue, radiant like the sun.
Nose: Rich fig, raisin and caramel. Soft, warm apples and a very light sprinkle of dark chocolate flakes.
Palate: Nutty, fruit and warming. More caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and plenty of entertaining fruit notes.
Finish: Dark chocolate returns for the long finish.
