Aberlour 12 yo Non Chill-Filtered

by Oliver Klimek on May 31, 2013


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Stewed apples, raisins, hints of raspberries, light caramel and nutmeg.
Palate: Red berries with whipped cream, raisins, prunes, fudge, marzipan, hints of nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and slighly spicy.
Overall: This is a very decent daily dram with nice rich flavours though it is not not overly complex.

Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Do you know if this new expression is intended to fully replace the existing, chill-filtered 12yo, or it just a limited run that will exist side-by-side. I ask as the Aberlour website makes no mention of it as part of their standard line-up, and SAQ in Quebec carries both, while the LCBO here in Ontario only carries the original, chill-filtered 12yo, and has indicated that it has no plans to carry the newer version.

I can’t say for sure, but I suscpect it’s a one-off, or maybe an experiment to test the market.
