Aberlour was founded in 1879 by secret philanthropist James Fleming in the small village of Charlestown of Aberlour in Speyside. He invested much of the profits from the distillery in the local community, including building a community hall, hospital and bridge over the River Spey. However, he was also a modest man, doing this under a veil of secrecy, with his part in it all only being revealed after his death in 1895.
The included glasses are made by the Cristallerie de Saint-Louis, the oldest glass-maker in France, and the rims are decorated with 24 carat gold. Along with a water jug they all fit snugly into the supplied case for elegant drinking on the move.
Aberlour 1967 Reviews
Producer's notes (translated from French):
Colour: Gold backed with hints of shimmering Linden bark. Beautiful clarity.
Nose: Fragrant, intense, delicious. Swirls of sweet cream. Beeswax, creamed coconut. Fresh mandarin. A touch of white chocolate. Ripe and juicy fruit. Yellow peach and apricot. Surprisingly fresh herbal aromas. Tarragon infused in vanilla syrup. Muntok white pepper.
Palate: Crisp, almost like coarse silk. Mellowness makes itself slowly known. Notes of vetiver and dry nuts. Oak, mixed with citron bark, reveals its lustre with firmness and elegance.
Finish: Dry, spicy. Ginger, Szechuan pepper. It fades gently with soft notes of almond milk.
