The 12 year-old expression is a fine example of how the distinctively crisp, citrus character of Aberlourâ€™s raw spirit is deftly softened by double cask maturation. Traditional oak and seasoned Sherry butts are both used to great effect, as the mellowed spirits within are combined to deliver a subtly balanced flavour.
Colour: Golden amber with hints of ruby.
