Scotch - Single Malt
Aberlour 12yr Double Cask Matured Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky
This is a Tier 1 score in the Whiskey category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
The Aberlour Distillery was founded by James Fleming in 1879 in the heart of Speyside. They glory in being between the junction of the rivers Lour and Spey, the former river providing the water for the whisky. The community itself claims to be 1,400 years old. According to Malt Maniacs the name aberlour translates from the Gaelic as "the mouth of the babbling brook." The distillery is owned by Chivas Brothers who themselves are owned by the French-based Pernod-Ricard.
Aberlour 12yr Double Cask single malt is aged--obviously enough--for 12 years in a combination of oak casks either used for bourbon or sherry (hence, "double cask") giving the whisky unusual characteristics in taste and hue.
