Golden amber in color with hints of ruby. Soft and rounded, with fruity notes of red apple aromas.
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. A fine sherried character, balanced with rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness. A warming and lingering finish, sweet and slightly spicy.
