Favorite of recent Fiddich

Aberlour 12 Year Old Duncan Taylor NC2 Bottling. Distilled: 1995 Bottled: 2008. 56.3% ABV. Cask Strength.
From D&M only - a recent delivery from their club.
This pale pine color whisky shows off thin, slow legs. Bourbon wood favorite. The nose offers heather; fresh cut pine wood, a hint of salt and a promise of powerful alcohol. Medium bodied on the palate, there’s a cinnamon candy note set in a heathery meadow. Fresh and lively, with lots of sweet malt and a spicy, peppery finish that doesn’t display much heat for all its power. This one takes a splash of water well and it opens up a nice white chocolate grace note to the finish.
