Sensory Description: Aberlour 18 showcases an alluring auburn gold color. The nose is enveloped by rich, complex layers of toffee, butterscotch, ripe peach, and bitter orange, offering an intricate bouquet. The palate presents a perfect structure with an initial softness of apricot and cream, which quickly transitions into more robust flavors of blackcurrant jam and sweet oak, highlighted by a touch of honey. The finish is impressively long and harmonious, delicately moving from the sweet richness of crème brûlée to a subtle oak flourish, reflecting its well-aged character.

This attention to detail ensures a whisky that is not only rich in flavor but also in history and craftsmanship.

It pairs excellently with rich desserts like dark chocolate torte or a selection of fine cheeses. Serve at room temperature, between 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, to best enjoy its deep and luxurious profile. This exceptional whisky is perfect for special occasions and as a distinguished gift for the connoisseur.
