Whisky Focus - Aberlour 14 Year Old Double Cask Review

Aberlour 14 Year Old Double Cask


15th March 2021
Aberlour add 14 Year Old expression to their Double Cask line-up.

Aberlour 14 Year Old Double CaskAberlour has added a fourth expression to complete its Double Cask matured range, the Aberlour 14 Year Old Double Cask which joins the existing Aberlour 12 Year Old, 16 Year Old and 18 Year Old Double Cask expressions in the line-up offering whisky drinkers an interesting incite into how a single malt whisky develops after another couple of years under the same maturation conditions.

Aberlour 14 Year Old Double Cask is produced in unique batches, a combination of hand-selected aromatic Oloroso casks and a significant portion of first-fill American oak casks which Aberlour say enhances the recognisably rich flavour and provide a delicate complexity like no other single malt in the Aberlour aged range.

Aberlour says that the result of the combination of these two types of casks is a balanced 14 Year Old with a sweet fruity taste, bringing together notes of ripe blackberries and aromatic spice, and a finish of creamy complexity from the higher proportion of first-fill American Oak casks.

Graeme Cruickshank, Master Distiller at Aberlour commented on this new addition to the Double Cask line-up saying:

"We are proud of the meticulous attention to detail and teamwork that has gone into the creation of Aberlour 14 Year Old. Itís a true celebration and manifestation of the art of distilling, which we are extremely passionate about. When you visit Aberlour, there is always a lingering smell of blackcurrants in the air and that note is at the heart of every drop of whisky that runs out of our stills. The natural maturation process of our double cask maturing focuses this, adding a delicate extra level to the palate, and captures the complexity that our fans have come to know and love."

Bottled at 40% ABV you will find the Aberlour 14 Year Old Double Cask available from specialist online whisky retailers  such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
