Staff Pick Notes

By the end of our last Scotch sale, all the Scotch talk and Scotch business got me in the mood for, unsurprisingly, Scotch. I wanted something new, and being a big Aberlour fan, I picked up one of these. I was not disappointed; it’s seriously good. Finished exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks (the ‘Alba’ in the name comes from 'quercus alba', the scientific name for American oak) this is an adventurous departure for Aberlour, as they've made a name for themselves for their heavily Sherried style.

A luscious palate opens up and delivers citrus zest, dried apple, and biscuit. A long, sweet, peppery finish brings us home.
