Reserved for decades as the heart of the Dewars family of blended whiskies, Aberfeldy is now being released in limited quantities in 12 and 21 year old expressions.
Tasting note: Bright gold. Initially impressions are of a fruit salad with striking scents of unripe cantaloupe most salient alongside dustings of dried coconut. Five minutes sees the fruity edge only slightly diminished. Light,silky entry builds into a soft, medium bodied, elegant and delicate malt. The fruity / vanilla combination repeats at mid palate, followed by hints of oatmeal and moderate length. A delightfully fruity Speysider. 40% Alc./Vol.
