Aberfeldy 12 Year
John Dewar & Sons // Highlands, Scotland
Launched in 1999, Aberfeldy 12 is produced at a distillery that is one of two single malt distilleries that comprise the Dewar's Blended Scotch line of whiskies. Less than 1% of the single malt produced here is bottled as such. That's a bloody shame.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeAmerican Oak
"Sweet aromas of caramel, toffee and beeswax are presented with the tasting profile of more of the same. Additionally, there's a slight nutty and wood spice finish which winds up on the dry side."
