Nestled in the heart of Speyside, Aberlour Distillery has been crafting exceptional single malts since 1826. The 18 Year Old expression is a testament to Aberlour's dedication to quality and tradition, offering a whisky that is both sophisticated and deeply satisfying.

Background: Aberlour, with its Gaelic roots meaning 'Mouth of the Chattering Burn', is renowned for its use of the finest oak casks. For this 18-year-old expression, the whisky undergoes a dual maturation process in both Oloroso sherry and American oak casks, resulting in a rich, complex character.

Tasting Notes:

  • Nose: A delightful aroma of ripe orchard fruits, notably apples and pears, intertwined with creamy toffee, hints of milk chocolate, and a touch of spice.
  • Palate: Full-bodied and velvety. Dark chocolate and dried fruits dominate, followed by toffee sweetness, a hint of almond, and a trace of winter spices. The sherry influence is evident, imparting a rich dried fruit character, complemented by a gentle oakiness.
  • Finish: Long, warm, and lingering. Notes of dark chocolate and dried cherries persist, with a subtle hint of oak spice.

Characteristics: Bottled at 43% ABV, Aberlour 18 Year Old retains a robust yet elegant character. The meticulous maturation process ensures a harmonious balance between the spirit and the wood, resulting in a whisky that is rich, deep, and full of character.
