SJ's Rating- Top Shelf 
 It is well-rounded and very smooth to drink. I like it because it has an amazing sherry flavor and is so smooth. It is a little overpriced though.

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)
The product label reads "Aberlour whisky was born in the speyside village of Aberlour, made with local spring water from the Ben Rinnes and barley. Now locally sourced from the fields near our distillery"

Aberlour 12 is matured in two different casks, American oak and Spanish sherry. Their rich flavors impart the whisky over time. After twelve years of maturation in different casks, the magic of blending the whiskies is done by the master blender. This time the tasting notes are so accurate in the bottle, I honored it and pasted it in my tasting notes. The only thing left is to enjoy! Cheers!
