Aberlour 12 Double Cask – whisky review

Aberlour 12 Double Cask

The very first single malt whisky for the most of the whisky-fans is definitely Glenfiddich 12. In my case, it looked a bit different. Someone gave me a dram of that Glenfiddich and I was indeed impressed, but not enough to buy a bottle or to start the Adventure with whisky.

Aberlour 12 Double Cask

The first single malt i bought for me was the Aberlour 12 Double Cask. I knew what I was doing. Today, I still remember where I got it (and I also know its price). Oh, it was well-spent money.

Aberlour 12 Double Cask

Aberlour means „the mouth of the Lour River”

Scotch Single Malt

Region: Speyside

12 years

40% ABV


Aged in ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks


Aberlour 12yo

Color: amber +1, artificially colored

Tasting notes

Nose: cinnamon, caramel, cloves, dried plums, pears, leather, peaches, very distinct Sherry influence. 21/25

Palate: very clear. Bitter chocolate, plum jam, caramel, semi-sweet wine, ripe bananas, blackcurrant, honey. Alcohol is well hidden. 21/ 25

Finish: prunes, raisins, cappuccino, liqueur peaches, chocolate. Very pleasant, but a bit short. 20/25

Balance: It’s a little bit difficult for me to be objective, because I feel a huge sentiment towards this Whisky. It was my first Single Malt I’d tried. I always liked it … and it hasn’t change until today. Great Speysider. 21/25

Overall: 83/100

Other reviewers marks:

Serge (2015): 84/100

Ralfy (2017): 83/100

Price: About 30-35€, but I saw once in Lidl in Poland for the price of 26€. Great opportunity.
