Product information

Aberlour 18 Year Old is an award winning double cask matured single malt aged for a minimum of 18 years in a combination of the finest hand-picked Oloroso Sherry butts and American Oak barrels. This gives a deeper Sherry influence that adds more spiciness and a liquorice tang. All our single malts are made with the best local ingredients of barley and soft water from nearby mountain, Ben Rinnes. Awarded Gold Medal at the IWSC Awards for the best Cask Finish Speyside Single Malt

Only the very best casks have been selected to ensure a single malt of unsurpassed richness and embody the ultimate expression of Aberlour.
An intense whisky with a perfect structure. The soft flavours of cream and peach are balanced by distinctive notes of chocolate and orange zest.

The richness of the natural environment combined with the soft and pure water creates Aberlour single malt, a distinctive whisky of generous character.

Absolutely delicious

I love this whisky. The flavours are deep and complex with a slight smoky hint. So smooth. It is an expensive whisky but absolutely worth it as a treat. Any single malt lover will adore it!

Simply Magnificent

The first sip warms the palate with a fruity, oaky blast which is so smooth. The torso then feels warm and the enjoyment begins as you start to work out the complexity of aromas and flavours. Best enjoyed with a like minded companion because the talking points are endless. Absolutely superior and perfect for special occasions.

Splendid Whisky

This is a very high quality whisky, definitely something to buy for a special occasion. It has a smoky aroma with, I felt, a taste of sherry and marmalade. Very strong with a lingering aftertaste. Outstanding.

WOW......not much more you can say

Close to perfection. This is not a cheap whisky by any stretch of the imagination & if it were a full size 70cl bottle you would be looking at £190 a bottle, but it is certainly worth it. A mellow rich & complex single malt, that time spent maturing in the barrels has added so much. The first thing that hits you on the nose is a slightly citrus & chocolate aroma, but more sherry than anything else. On the palate again you get a slight citrus taste, but then bags of rich ripe fruit and oak. The finish is incredibly smooth, no harsh edges & is among the smoothest malts I have tasted in the last 30 years, and I have tasted hundreds. Do not let the price put you off, you really do get what you pay for, if you can afford it then give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

For special occasions.

It is a great quality bottle of whiskey so it's best saved for special occasions. It is expensive for what it is but worth it.
