Tasting Notes

"This wonderfully sippable Scotch whisky from Aberfeldy opens up with a little bit of hay on the aroma. On the palate, it offers a pleasant almond nuttiness, a hint of raisin, and restrained vanilla. The finish is warm with a touch of nutmeg and salt. It's a great Highland dram all the way through."
