The 12 year-old expression is a fine example of how the distinctively crisp, citrus character of Aberlour's raw spirit is deftly softened by double cask maturation. Traditional oak and seasoned Sherry butts are both used to great effect, as the mellowed spirits within are combined to deliver a subtly balanced flavor. Color: Golden amber with hints of ruby. Nose: Soft and rounded, with fruity notes of red apple. Palate: A fine sherried character, balanced with rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness. Finish: Warming and lingering - sweet and slightly spicy.

Wine EnthusiastNosing passes find delicious aromas of roasted chestnuts, nectarines, apricots, banana, traces of jasmine, unbaked bread dough and yeast, and light honey. Palate entry is assertive and caramel sweet; midpalate is more integrated as layers of sweet grain and toffee intermingle with dried fruits (prunes), oaky spice and marzipan. Concludes sweet, oaky and a touch Sherried.
