Outstanding single malt, which was matured 18 years in Ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks. Strong notes of peaches, oranges and sweet dry fruits are accompanied by a fine, mild sweetness of Honey and caramel. With a long and deep warming finish this is a very special drop for the lovers of non-peaty high quality whiskies.

Description

Aberlour 18 years Single Malt

The Aberlour 18 years Single Malt is one of Aberlour’s outstanding creations. Aberlour produces in the beautiful Speyside area with passion and according to old traditions high-quality whiskys.
The springs at Ben Rinnes provide the water for the production of this precious drop. Powerful pot stills were designed especially for this distillery and date back to 1879. They are still in good shape and in use for the distillation process. 18 years of maturity in bourbon and sherry casks give the 18-year-old single malt wonderful notes from both different woods.

Like most Speyside whiskeys, this one is made with non-smoky malt. But the long maturity gives it a wonderful complexity and makes it one of the distillery’s figureheads. During the last years, this outstanding single malt has won nine gold medals and three Pot Still Trophies at the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition, for example double gold at the San Francisco WSC contest. Meanwhile, this precious single malt is obviously getting scarcer. It is now sold in 0.5l bottles with 43% alcohol content.

Strong fruity notes from the sherry barrels reveal right from the start and are accompanied by a fine, mild sweetness. Honey and caramel, as well as light almond flavors spoil the nose. On the tongue unfolds then a bouquet of wonderful dried fruits, peaches and orange notes. In the deep warming finish, the sweet components, as well as delicate wood notes remain on the tongue for a long time.

    Mr. Whisky

    Ein sensationeller Malt. Mächtige Sherry Aromen, fast schon cremig untermalt mit Trockenfrüchten. Hohe Intensität aber keinerlei Schärfe. Im Abgang kommt dezent aber mit Nachhaltigkeit die Zartbitterschokolade der Eichenfässer. Man muss lange suchen um Vergleichbares zu finden.

    Aroma: Sherry, Orange, Rosinen, Aprikosen….Veilchen?
    Geschmack: voll und intensiv, weich, Milchschokolade, sahnig, etwas Aprikosenmarmelade, Orangenlikör, dann eher zartbitter – entwickelt sich vom Schmelz zur Würzigkeit.
    Abgang: lang und würzig, Bitterschokolade
    Kommentar: Wundervoll dicht verwobener Schoko-Whisky, mit weichem Schmelz, vielschichtig und konzentriert. Wegen mir könnte er auch mit 46% abgefüllt werden…
