All about making whisky
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
- Appearance : topaz with glints of copper.
- Nose : simultaneously firm and unctuous. Fruity (prune, date), delicately woody (oak, toffee) and floral (geranium), the initial nose is particularly well-balanced. The more it breathes, the more the sherry’s influence is apparent. This is given perfect expression with notes of dark chocolate, figs, cherries in brandy, tobacco and spices (ginger, coriander). Its remarkable freshness is matched by its complexity.
- Palate : dense, rich. The flavours develop at a firm, steady pace. Gooseberries, tapenade, leather, citrus fruit zest, hints of lime blossom and black cherries, accompanied by crisp, juicy fruit (pear, peach) are the main notes which contribute to creating a very pleasant feeling of serenity.
- Overall : long, rather lively. Firmly rooted in Andalusian soil, it carries us to the cellars of a bodega in Jerez de la Frontera to inhale the wonderful Oloroso aromas. Dry (date, fig), it is also delicately woody. Packed with flavour, the retro-nasal olfaction is juicy with notes of vanilla, gradually becoming more mineral (pencil lead). The empty glass is a mixture of notes of sweet liquorice, charred wood and exotic fruit (banana).
- 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
