Wednesday Whisky Club - Aberfeldy 12-Year Old

September 26, 2018

The Perthshire distillery of Aberfeldy produces elegant yet robust single malts which deserve to be much more widely celebrated, though the bulk of Aberfeldy’s output goes into the best-selling Dewar’s White Label blend. This 12-year-old expression has an attractive honeyed nose and is very nicely balanced. 

Aberfeldy | Scotch and Rich

 

Deep amber in colour - the first nose is relatively closed, with traces of beeswax and buttered toast covering a zesty note of orange peel. Smooth and scented to taste; sweet to start, with a hint of white pepper, drying in the warming finish. Water increases the waxy note in both the aroma and texture, making it not so dry in the finish. Easy drinking.
