The family motto of James Fleming, who founded Aberlour in 1879, was “Let the deed show” or, in other words, let Aberlour’s whiskies speak for themselves. And this version offers a perfect example of it, in that it so beautifully demonstrates, if there were any need, how ageing in sherry casks fits this famous Speyside single malt like a glove. Even better, it takes us on a complex, whirlwind journey, full of subtle nuances, to Jerez de la Frontera.
Profile: Creamy, delicately woody and floral, the nose becomes chocolatey, fruity (figs) and spicy (ginger). The palate is rich, fruity (black cherries) and herbaceous (vervain). The finish is mineral with notes of vanilla.
