Aberlour is a gaelic word meaning ‘mouth of the chattering burn’. The Aberlour distillery is situated at the junction of the River Lour and Spey, it lies within a glen, surrounded by some beautiful scenery right next to the rugged peaks of Ben Rinnes. The water used for making the whisky is drawn from underground springs beneath the distillery. During the maturing phase the warehouse benefits by inhaling the moist Speyside air. Aberlour have years of experience and passion when it comes to making their multi-layered single malt whiskies.
The 10yo is a classic Speyside malt that is matured in a combination of oak ex bourbon casks and ex sherry butts for a minimum of 10 years. The colour is a warming gold and on the nose it is dry, fresh with fruity aromas of early autumn apples and pears are subtly enhanced with sweet notes of vanilla and mint toffee. On the palate it is exceptionally smooth and creamy, with spicy-sweet nutmeg and honey combining with the freshness of autumn fruits. The finish is long with a soft warming touch.
