ABERLOUR 12 YEAR OLD Un-chillfiltered 48%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 16397
Bottling without chill filtration reveals a whisky at 48% ABV with its aromas and flavours fully preserved.
Though adding water can make the whisky slightly misty due to the lack of chill filtration, Aberlour 12 Year Old Non Chill Filtered stands out for its surprising, generous aromatic bouquet with fruity and spicy notes. This new single malt stays true to the Aberlour tradition of double maturation in sherry and bourbon casks, a process which gives the whisky body and elegance.
- Appearance : Burnished gold with orange tinges.
- Nose : Fine, balanced. Notes of noble wood, close to undergrowth (truffle, earth). Gains freshness (coriander) and creaminess (lime blossom honey). The Aberlour style is now firmly in place. Milk chocolate, liquorice and caramel nestle closely with the fruit (apricot, fig, apple).
- Palate : Powerful, lively. At first, it softens with notes of dark chocolate, apricot and candied orange. Then leather, mushrooms, lichen and dead leaves bring an autumnal feel followed by a cohort of spices (star anise, cumin, cloves).
- Overall : It has a sunny, warm register. Fruit jelly (apricot, apple), malt and sherry rub shoulders. The fruit eventually gets the upper hand. The retronasal olfaction brings candied notes (lemon) and honey (lavender). The empty glass is malty and chocolatey.
- The brand
The charm of Aberlour is summed up in the magic of its setting, chosen long before distilleries were legal and probably going back to when only monks knew the secrets of distilling; in other words, to where Scotch whisky originated. Indeed, those long before us meticulously set up their stills here in order to take advantage of the spring water, filtered through the granite mass of Ben Rinnes. They then made the large Aberlour stills to capture the richest vapours of the distillate. It is also the heart of Speyside, where the rivers Spey and Lour converge; more than 1,400 years of rich history, illustrated beautifully by the mysterious stones of Fairy Hill. Find out more
