700 ml, 43% abv, Scotland (Speyside)

Aberlour 16 Year Old is matured in a combination of ex-bourbon casks and the finest ex-sherry butts. This maturation ensures the depth of character as well as the distinctive fruitiness and spiciness of Aberlour.

Most Aberlour single malts are double cask matured. When it has come to age, the whisky from the two sets of casks is brought together for the first time and the different flavours and textures are subtly merged. The American bourbon casks produce a sweet vanilla-like aroma and golden colour, which varies in intensity according to the length of period of maturation. Whisky matured in ex-sherry casks is more full-bodied, with sweeter, spicier Oloroso overtones and a rich, amber hue.

“A whisky with fruity notes, Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask Matured is a complex single malt, double-aged in casks. Matured for at least 16 years in both sherry casks and traditional casks, this whisky with spicy notes offers subtle flavours, with softness and depth.”

This 43% abv bottling was especially for the French market, but we now have some available. Batch AB16-1-19
