In the 19th century, local barley farmer, James Fleming, founded Aberlour distillery to fulfil a lifelong dream; to create the finest Speyside malt whisky. Fast forward 142 years later to present day, and Aberlour is hailed as one of best-selling single malt whiskies in its category.
All of Aberlour's single malts are expertly crafted and matured for a minimum of 12 years both in the finest hand-picked Oloroso Sherry butts and American Oak barrels. It’s this double cask maturation which subtly brings together the characteristics of each cask to create a truly rich and rewardingly complex range of single malts.

Aberlour 14 Year Old Double Cask
This 14-year-old Speyside single malt from Aberlour Distillery has been matured in a combination of Oloroso sherry casks and first-fill American oak casks. Released in 2020, this expression has been bottled at 40% abv.
Expect a balance of sweet vanilla and dark cherries on the nose. The palate is well-rounded, with blackcurrant, caramel, blackberries and a touch of ginger spice. The finish is sweet and creamy.
Please note: This expression is Batch 0002.
With each batch carefully made by hand, Aberlour A’bunadh is a unique cask strength single malt whisky that has achieved cult status among whisky connoisseurs. Meaning ‘the original’ in Gaelic, A’bunadh is made in homage to Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming, using only traditional methods without chill filtration or other modern processes. The result is a heavier, creamier single malt than most have ever experienced – memorably flavoursome, with an intense raisin character.

On the palate it carries flavours of black cherries, dried fruit and ginger with dark bitter chocolate. Always there is a lingering sherry and oak tone. It is superlatively full bodied and creamy. The finish is robust and long lasting, with bittersweet notes.
