The perfect set for a gift or tasting, Aberlour 12 Years Old Gift Pack contains two branded glasses and tasting notes.

Bottled without chill filtration process, it reveals a whisky grading 48% vol. with intact aromas and preserved flavours.

A slight haze may appear when adding water as it is a characteristic of the non-chill filtration. Un-chillfiltered Aberlour  stands out by its surprising and generous aromatic bouquet, with both fruity and spicy notes. This Single Malt remains true to the tradition of Aberlour distillery with its double maturation in sherry and bourbon casks, giving 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 highlights.

Nose: fine, balanced. Notes of precious woods, close to truffles and soil. Gaining freshness (coriander) and smoothness (linden honey). Milk chocolate, liquorice and caramel are embracing fruits (apricot, fig, apple).

Palate: lively, powerful. At first, it softens with dark chocolate, apricot and candied orange. Then, leather, mushrooms, lichen, leaves bring their autumn colours followed by a cohort of spices (star anise, cumin, cloves).

Finish: bright and warm. Jelly fruit (apricot, apple), malt and sherry fraternise. Fruits eventually take over. The palate is preserved (lemon) and honeydew (lavender). The empty glass is malty and chocolatey.
