An excellent 12 years old expression of Aberlour single malt, a vatting of first fill sherry and unspecified refill casks.
The effect of such marriage is a delightful, perfectly balanced whisky with lovely sherry influence, just like a kiss of a Speyside lady.
Nose: smooth and earthy, fruity, ripe red apples, pears, prunes, walnuts and toasted oak.
Palate: chocolate, cinnamon and ginger perfectly balanced with sherry notes.
Finish: warming, sweet with hints of spice and mint.
