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. (GS, Summer 2018)
The gorgeous little distillery at the entrance of the tiny town of the same name has quietly become one of the Scotch-loving world's darlings. The distillery, owned by blending giant Chivas Brothers (Pernod Ricard), was built in 1879 and features two 21 thousand-liter wash stills and a pair each of spirits stills, 20 and 15 thousand liters. The distillery's name means "mouth of the babbling brook," and indeed a stream meanders next to the distillery, but the distillery's water comes from Ben Rinnes like many of the other distilleries around the famous mountain. From the producer: "Rather than boasting about the distinctive qualities of his Aberlour single malt, our founder, James Fleming remained true to his family's motto since the days of Robert the Bruce, 'Let the deed show.' The proof is in the drinking. This saying simply translates as, ‘actions speak louder than our words’. James Fleming let his whisky do the talking. It was his actions then, and the actions now of all our craftsmen that define the character of Aberlour."
