This is the trademark of Aberlour distillery in Speyside, Scotland. One of the lesser-known single malts, it deserves to be discovered and recognized on its own merits. First let’s have a look at the distillery’s history. Aberlour was built in 1879 in the eponymous village along the borders of the fast flowing River Spey. After a fire destroyed the original buildings, the distillery was entirely rebuilt by Mr. Fleming, a local entrepreneur, successful businessman and a great philanthropist.
