Aberlour 12 Year Old Double Cask Matured

(Bot. +/-2015)

This is a lighter brother of the 12 yo Un-chillfiltered that’s bottled at 48% vol. and that I really like. Colour: gold. Nose: fresh, malty, and kirschy at first nosing, with an almondy side, some notes of fruit stones (yeah, kirsch and plum eau-de-vie), then rather more leather and earth. I find it rather complex and, again, fresh. Whiffs of sour dough, fresh bread… That should be the malt speaking out. Mouth: easy and malty again, very coherent with the nose, but with more spices. Very fine body, closer to 43% than to 40% vol. The sherry takes off after five seconds, with raisins and prunes. Fruitcake and chocolate, and perhaps one Mon Chéri. Do you know Mon Chéri? Finish: medium, drier and a little rougher, with cloves and cinnamon. Gingerbread, perhaps. Comments: really very fine, not unlike a civilised, gentler A’bunadh. And it’s not expensive at all! SGP:451 - 84 points.
