Proof66 Notes

Aberlour 16yr Single Malt scotch is the 16yr expression of the double-cask scotch whisky aged in a combination of bourbon oak and sherry oak casks.

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.

My favorite of the Aberlour range thus far. I think Alchemist's write up is great; it matches my notes for the most part, but instead of hot chili peppers and vanilla I get fruit and cinnamon dough. It does taste slightly more youthful than some of my other favored 16's (Glenlivet Nadurra, Lagavulin), but I think it's definitely worth what the current sale price is ($48).

Great nose and a slightly briny finish. Not too peaty. A delicious single malt.
