Built by the Dewar family in 1898 on the edge of Highland Perthshire, Aberfeldy Distillery produces a fine and sophisticated Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Reserved for years as the heart of DEWAR'S blends, limited quantities of Aberfeldy Single Malt Whisky are now available. At 12 years old, Aberfeldy is noted for its heather honey nose, fully body and rounded taste. The finish is dry and elegant, with pronounced spicy characteristics and a hint of Seville oranges.
Color: Full, golden yellow.
Nose: Almost incense-like, heather honey with a fruity softness, notes of pineapple, toast and cereal.
Palate: Syrupy, lingering on the tongue like a liqueur.
Body: Full bodied.
Finish: Full flavour, the perfume characteristics become more spicy, with a bitter hint of Seville oranges in a decidedly dry finish.
Wine EnthusiastI pick up baked yellow fruits (banana, pear, quince) and round, lightly toasted scents of malt in the aroma. Palate entry offers clean, crisp tastes of dry breakfast cereal and lightly toasted barley malt; by midpalate, the dry to off-dry flavor profile includes oak-induced vanilla, light toffee, and nougat. Ends on a woody note.
