The whisky comes in a variety of ages, including a 10, 12, 15, 16, 18 and a rare 30 year old 1970 vintage malt, as well as a cask strength release called (A'bunadh) with no age statement. Most of the variants are aged in American ex-bourbon casks, a standard for many single malts. Aberlour also releases a range of malts that, after aging in bourbon casks, are finished in casks previously used to mature varieties of fortified wines or sherries, a method applied to appeal particularly to the French market.
Aberlour whiskies have had some success at spirit ratings competitions, including the following awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competitions.
