Aberlour Forest Reserve Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 Year Old [700ml]Aberlour
A 10 Year Old single malt from Aberlour distillery, Forest Reserve spent most of its ageing in bourbon barrels and sherry casks from Jerez, before it was treated to a finish in French Limousin oak casks. It's called Forest Reserve as a nod to the commitment of the distillery to conserving the forest in the Speyside region, where the distillery resides.
