Aberlour 19 Year Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky 116.6 Proof
This Aberlour 19 Year Whisky Sherry Cask is a single cask offering that was matured in a first fill sherry butt for 19 years. It’s a sweet and fruity Speyside dram that has been released for the Asian market, making it hard to get your hands on anywhere else, except here at Whisky Foundation. The whisky brings notes of dried fruits, sherried raisins and then comes some ground coffee beans and cocoa leaves. Pipe tobacco is apparent on the finish, joined once again by more dried fruits and some pears. As a single cask whisky released for the Asian market, quantities are very limited.
This distillery direct cask is exclusive to the CA market. The 1st fill sherry butt yielded just 516 bottles at 58.3% ABV. Bottled without chill filtration, this is a unique opportunity to own an Aberlour classic. All of the barley was sourced from within 15 miles of the distillery and produced with their uniquely soft water from the Birkenbush spring.
