Aberlour Double Cask Matured 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

"As with most Aberlour whisky, this 12-year-old single malt has been matured in two types of cask. This double casking adds depth of character as well as balanced notes of fruits and spices. Golden amber colour with hints of ruby red. Very soft and rounded nose with fruity notes of red apples. Sherried character and fruity aromas on the palate balanced with a rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness. Warming and lingering finish. Sweet and very slightly spicy." —producer

"Nosing passes find delicious aromas of roasted chestnuts, nectarines, apricots, banana, traces of jasmine, unbaked bread dough and yeast, and light honey. Palate entry is assertive and caramel sweet; midpalate is more integrated as layers of sweet grain and toffee intermingle with dried fruits (prunes), oaky spice and marzipan. Concludes sweet, oaky and a touch Sherried." —P. P., Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Beginning with an incredible nose of dried cherries, ripe apricot, ripe plum and a a delicate floral bouquet of orange blossom, white flower and honeysuckle. Bold and rich mouthfeel with notes of honey, candied orange peel, vanilla, and a delightful touch of grain. The finish is intense and slightly sweet with subdued honeyed notes. Excellent, Highly Recommended." —Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2013 (93 points)

Laphroaig Select Single Malt Scotch Whisky

"Laphroaig Select takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for their unique character that they give during maturation. Our Inspiration for our new Global expression has been take from history – 70-80 years ago, the time of the last family member owner of the distillery, Ian Hunter. Ian was one of the biggest influences in the history of Laphroaig indeed he was one of the first distillers to travel to bourbon county in the USA to identify new sources of casks that would give him greater consistency as well as new flavours. He later married this ‘new’ style of Laphroaig with his traditionally matured (European cask) Laphroaig. Inspired by his early work, we have used Oloroso sherry butts, straight American white oak (non-filled with bourbon), PX seasoned hogsheads, Quarter Casks and finally of course first fill Bourbon Casks. This varied cask maturation technique enabled us to create 6 new flavour combinations that were then tested with our FOL’s to choose their favourite style and indeed name. The winning flavour and name chosen by you is Laphroaig Select." —producer
