About the Whisky:
Greater age adds body and a rich raisin character to Aberlour’s characteristic depth and spiciness. Matured in the highest quality casks, where it develops deep Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry flavours, this is the richest and most indulgent Aberlour expression. Perfect in structure and memorably eloquent.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Sumptuous auburn gold.

Nose: Rich and complex, with notes of toffee and butterscotch combining with ripe peach and bitter orange.

Palate: Superbly structured, with initial notes of soft apricot and cream, offset by developing flavours of old leather and oak, with a touch of honey.

Finish: Very long and well balanced, progressing from creme brule to a gentle oak flourish.

Awards/Reviews:

Trophy, Best Single Malt 13-20 Years Old - Intl Spirits Challenge 2021

 95 Points, Gold - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2021

"A sophisticated dram brimming with notes of baked apple, nuts and sweet, smoky oak. All elements are in perfect balance in this refined example."

 92 Points - Whisky Advocate

"This has a significant proportion of sherry wood and it marks a real step up from its younger stablemates. It boasts a stylish nose of old leathery cigar boxes, vanilla, and orange marmalade. Syrupy on the palate, with oranges, sweet sherry, honey, and figs. Spicy oak, caramel, citrus fruits, and aniseed in the lengthy finish."
