Reduced price! Aberlour 12 Years Old Un-chillfiltered 70cl 48°

Distillery : Aberlour / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 22014

Aberlour 12 Years Old aged like most Aberlour whiskies, in two types of casks, some of which previously contained Bourbon, and others Sherry. This double maturation developed the depth and full character of the perfectly balanced notes of fruits and spices.

Bottled without chill filtration, the whisky reveals a 48°ABV with intact aromas and perfectly preserved flavours.

A slight dim might appear when adding water, typical of the non-chilltfiltration. Aberlour 12 Years Old Non Chill Filtered is characterized by an amazing, generous aromatic bouquet, with fruity and spicy notes. This Single Malt is true to the Aberlour tradition as its double maturation in Sherry and Bourbon barrels brought roundness and elegance to the whisky.

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: Old gold with orange reflections.

Nose: Fine, balanced. Note of precious wood, close to undergrowth (truffle, earth). Gains in freshness (coriander) and smoothness (linden honey). Now, the Aberlour style is firmly in place. Milk chocolate, liquorice and caramel are intimately linked to fruit (apricot, fig, apple).

Palate: Lively, powerful. At first, it softens with notes of dark chocolate, apricot and candied oranges. Then, leather, mushrooms, lichen, dead leaves bring their autumnal hues followed by a host of spices (star anise, cumin, cloves).

Finish: Its register is sunny and warm. Fruit jelly (apricot, apple), malt and sherry fraternize. The fruits eventually take over. The retro-nasal olfaction is candied (lemon) and honeyed (lavender). The empty glass is malty and chocolatey.
