The Aberlour distillery is nestled in a valley at the junction of rivers Lour and Spey, surrounded by an amazing landscape overlook by the nearby Ben Rinnes peaks.

James Fleming established the Aberlour distillery in 1879. He drew himself most of the plans of the buildings and machines, personally supervising each step of the building works.

In 1898, a fire destroyed several distillery buildings and a large part of the whisky stocks. The re-building of the distillery was led by the most famous distillery builders in Scotland, Charles  Doig, from Elgin.

During the last century, tools and methods improved thanks to modernization of equipment and new technologies. However, most of the original structures are still in place, as part of Aberlour’s long heritage and transmission of knowledge and traditions.

The distillery produces 3,2 million liters of alcohol every year. Almost two thirds of the production is dedicated to the making of 10 year-old, 12 year-old and 16 year-old Aberlour Single Malts, and the Aberlour A’bunadh.

Colour: copper with old gold reflections.

Nose: asserts its dryness with delicacy. Imagine an orange covered in chocolate. Also, reminiscent of an imperial mandarin, minus the liqueur. Has the rigour of a dry amontillado. Pepper and nutmeg precede apricot, toasted walnut and salt, all in an autumnal atmosphere.

Palate: round with coated tannins, it is marked by sweet spices and dark chocolate. It gains in dryness in the middle of the mouth and then reveals notes of tobacco, oregano, and date. It continues with orange marmalade and raspberry.

Finish: delicate, nuanced. Savours like a white peach that you crunch with your teeth. Also evokes old woodwork steeped in history. The retro-olfaction reveals notes of lime.

Silver Medal, Best Speyside Single Malt aged 13 to 20 years category, World Whiskeys Awards 2024.

Aberlour double sherried
A dream of balanced sherry with a nice color and a long finish.

The support was awesome, and sent me pictures on request before buying the bottles.
The package was also perfect, and the bottles and the box were unharmed.
