Deep and concentrated aromas of nuts and raisins. The flavors in the mouth begin salty and spicy, slowly turning to sweet dried fig and candied nuts. The texture is leathery and rustic adding to the intensity of this whisky.
One of the best single malts that I have ver enjoyed, it needs a splash of water or two which results in a complex, totally enjoyable experience..
I have several abunadh bottles. This one does not lok like any of mine. What batch number is this one?
Founder of the Aberlour Distillery, James Fleming (1830-95) was a man of enterprise, vision and compassion. The son of a local tenant farmer, he became a grain dealer with many whisky distillers among his customers.This encouraged him to establish his own distillery and create a whisky of distinction. He acquired the land at Aberlour and with it the priceless water source of St Drostan's Well. Work began in 1879 and within a year the whisky began to flow.
