Aberlour 18 Year Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Aberlour 18 Year Highland is already one of our favourite distilleries thanks to the excellent a’bunadh. Introduced in 2008, this 18 year old is now one of the stars of the range: rich and fruity, with a great textured mouthfeel. This honeyed single malt proudly wears its sherry influence on its sleeve, bursting with orange peel, Chinese five-spice, and unsmoked tobacco. Though rich, its balanced texture and understated, detailed flavors give this a distinctly aristocratic bearing.
Greater age adds body and a rich raisin character to Aberlour’s characteristic depth and spiciness. Matured in the highest quality casks, where it develops deep Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry flavours, this is the richest and most indulgent Aberlour expression. Perfect in structure and memorably eloquent.
Aberlour 18 Year Highland single malt from Aberlour up in Speyside. A well-matured, heavily sherried expression, the perfect thing for a late evening dram.
This fine single malt is produced at the Aberlour distillery that sits where the rivers Lour and Spey meet in the Spey region of the Highlands. Aberlour, which has been producing whisky since 1812, is known for their use of both American oak barrels and Sherry butts for their “double cask mature” whiskies and their seductive single malts and this 18-year is no different. It has rested in first fill ex-bourbon barrels and Oloroso Sherry butts before being bottled at 86 proof.
Creamy, like melted vanilla ice-cream. Fruity and honeyed.
Fresh juicy apples and oranges before sherry kicks in with supple sultanas and vanilla.
Intricate with chocolate raisins and oily caramel notes.
