Situated at the confluence of the Rivers Lour and Spey in Strathspey, Scotland, the Aberlour Distillery was founded in 1879 by James Fleming. Fleming, who was the son of a local tenant farmer, ultimately became a grain dealer in the middle of the 19th century. At the time, he counted several whisky distilleries as his customers, and after purchasing more barley than he was able to sell, Fleming decided to open a distillery himself.
In 1898, 3 years after Fleming's passing, a fire consumed much of Aberlour Distillery and its inventory of whisky. Following its destruction, the distillery was rebuilt under the supervision of Charles Doig — Scotland's foremost expert on whisky distilleries at the time. While the composition of the distillery and its equipment has inevitably been altered over the past century, Aberlour's commitment to traditional craftsmanship and quality single malt whisky has remained unchanged.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
It's a rich & sweet nose with fruity orange, cherry, and raisin notes as well as a touch of ginger. The fruity sweetness continues on the palate with apple and peach notes. Cinnamon, spice, licorice, and cloves make an entry. Finishes long and fruity with hints of spice.
