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 EnthusiastAmber in the glass, this Scotch has a rich butterscotch aroma, with touches of fresh apple and tropical fruit. Look for dried fruit and Sherry upfront on the palate, with additional notes of vanilla and oak that hang on through the exceedingly long and rounded finish. Though it's mouthcoating and oily, it's also roughed up a bit by the high proof, giving it a drying edge on the close.
