Our bins hold 18-24 bottles of wine or Champagne or 2-3 cases of lager when filled with ice and water. Drinks will be chilled in 30-45 minutes and will be kept cold for several hours, especially if kept in the shade. When the seasoning is finished, the wine is taken out and often re-used. After a few seasoning runs it will be discarded. The wine can’t legally be sold as sherry and it’s not suited for consumption anyway. Usually it will be distilled into sherry brandy or used to produce sherry vinegar. Unsurprisingly perhaps, one of the largest producers of sherry casks (Páez Lobato) is also the largest producer of sherry vinegar (Páez Morilla).” Here at Barrel & Brew, we typically drink Aberlour with close friends and family around a fire pit, during holidays, or to celebrate birthdays and milestones. This typically results in us enjoying a bottle every month or every other month. Aberlour SelectionWhat I love, though, is the balance of flavors that comes from the double cask. Often times, when something is aged in sherry casks, the fruity flavors can be overwhelming. Similarly, in ex-bourbon casks the flavor can become oaky and leather. This isn’t to say being aged in a single cask is a bad thing at all, but the balance Aberlour 12 Year brings to the table with the double cask is what we enjoy so much. Aberlour 12 Year Price Single cask Aberlour here, at a hefty 60.9% ABV under the Bein A'Cheo label by the Scottish Liqueur Centre. It was aged in a single cask, which filled 295 bottles. The Aberlour village is situated in the beautiful heart of Speyside. Surrounded by the vast and stunning Highland scenery of Ben Rinnes, and sits where the Lour burn meets the River Spey. The soft and pure spring water makes Aberlour Whiskey unlike anything else.

What does Aberlour taste like, and is it good? Below, is the flavor profile. Aberlour 12 Year Flavor Profile So let’s be clear: retired American Oak (which is what Bodegas in Spain currently use for their solera systems) solera casks aren’t good candidates for whisky maturation and virtually none are available anyway. Anything that’s labeled as matured in ex-sherry is either European Oak or American Oak that’s seasoned. Period.
The Aberlour Distillery is, as the name suggests in Aberlour. Specifically in a location called the River Spey. It is described as a magical location, and the distillery itself is small. James Fleming founded the Aberlour Distillery in 1879.
For the finish, while it is described as a long finish, it’s medium short. The finish gets a little lost; the fruit you had been enjoying up until this point becomes a little bit muddy and overtaken but the spicy oak. Even though the oak is faint, it seems to blur the clean fruity notes in the finish. Single malt means that the scotch is made up entirely of 100% malted barley, and it’s produced at a single distillery. Double cask means that the whisky is aged in two separate casks. In this case, ex-bourbon casks and ex-sherry casks. Since the age statement is 12 years, both whiskies must be aged a minimum of 12 years before they are paired together. Lastly, scotch is often classified by the region it came from. Speyside is a region that surrounds the River Spey and produces the two most popular single malt scotch whiskies in the world – Glenlivet and Glenfiddich.
