Single malt means that the scotch is made up entirely of 100% malted barley, and it’s produced at a single distillery. Double cask means that the whisky is aged in two separate casks. In this case, ex-bourbon casks and ex-sherry casks. Since the age statement is 12 years, both whiskies must be aged a minimum of 12 years before they are paired together. Lastly, scotch is often classified by the region it came from. Speyside is a region that surrounds the River Spey and produces the two most popular single malt scotch whiskies in the world – Glenlivet and Glenfiddich. James Fleming was born in 1830 to a tenant farmer, and after growing up working on the farm, James decided he wanted to do something else. Over the decades, he had done everything from distilling to trading and banking. In 1871, he had moved to the town of Aberlour and begun making a name for himself in the community. 8 years later, in 1879, he opened up the Aberlour distillery. Here at Barrel & Brew, we typically drink Aberlour with close friends and family around a fire pit, during holidays, or to celebrate birthdays and milestones. This typically results in us enjoying a bottle every month or every other month. Aberlour Selection
