You will like to know that…

The longer maturing time in two different types of casks (Bourbon and Sherry) gives the Aberlour 16 Years additional depth, spiciness and fruitiness. Its bouquet opens with rich aromas of dried flowers and raisins with a nutty spice.

On the palate, the Aberlour 16 Years captivates with a soft, flowery-sweet taste and notes of plum and oak. The finish is long lasting, warm and fruity. A special feature of Aberlour is the "Double Cask Maturation". Only through the separate maturation of the Whisky] in sherry and bourbon barrels does it acquire the typical depth and complexity during bottling, which hardly any connoisseur can escape.

Aberlour 16 Years is best served with a few drops of water, but can also be used to give your cocktails that certain something.
