Category: Speyside single malt whisky
Product of: United Kingdom
This non chill-filtered Speyside malt was launched in the USA in February 2012. Like the standard (filtered) Aberlour 12 year old it is aged in a combination of American oak ex-bourbon casks and sherry seasoned butts, but benefits from a higher bottling strength as well as being unfiltered.
