Description

The 12 Year Old Aberfeldy is a delightful spirit, presenting a sweet honey touch intermingled with notes of fruit, spices, ample vanilla, and a faint wisp of smoke. Its intricate flavor profile results from maturing in a diverse assortment of Sherry, Bourbon, re-fill, and re-char casks. An interesting aspect of its aging process is the 'Angels' Share', which refers to the portion of whisky that vanishes during its time in oak casks, with nearly one-third of the Aberfeldy 12 Year Old being lost before bottling. This exceptional whisky, known as the Golden Dram, has received global recognition, clinching over 150 Gold Medals from leading spirit competitions.

Tasting Note by Aberfeldy:
Scented with spiced and honeyed plump fruits and syrupy with lots of vanilla, fudge and just a whisper of smoke on the finish.

Aberfeldy Distillery: Golden Spirit of Highland Single Malt

Aberfeldy Distillery, located in the scenic heart of the Highlands in Scotland, is celebrated for its production of exquisite single malt Scotch whisky. Founded in 1898, this historic distillery is nestled near the picturesque town of Aberfeldy, known for its pristine water source—the Pitilie Burn. Aberfeldy whiskies are characterized by their golden hue and a smooth, honeyed sweetness that is emblematic of the Highland style. The distillery takes pride in using traditional copper pot stills and slow fermentation to capture the essence of the region's rugged landscapes and rich heritage. Each sip of Aberfeldy whisky reveals layers of flavor, from delicate floral and fruity notes to a gentle touch of spice, culminating in a beautifully balanced and satisfying experience.

The sentimental connection to John Dewar, the founder of the distillery, who was born nearby, likely played a role in choosing the location. The architectural design was entrusted to Charles Doig, a prominent distillery architect, with the iconic pagoda roof as his signature feature. Construction began in 1896, and the distillery's layout follows a logical and linear design, showcasing the different stages of whisky production.

The Unique Elixir of Aberfeldy Distillery

What sets Aberfeldy Distillery apart and makes it truly unique is its commitment to capturing the spirit of the Highlands in each drop of its whisky. With a location surrounded by scenic landscapes and access to the renowned Pitilie Burn water source, the distillery harnesses the natural elements of the region to create whiskies of unparalleled character. Aberfeldy is also known for its long fermentation process, which allows the flavors to develop slowly and create a distinctive complexity in the final product. Furthermore, Aberfeldy whiskies prominently feature a core flavor profile of honeyed sweetness, derived from their use of golden malted barley. This signature character sets Aberfeldy apart from other distilleries, offering a distinct and memorable taste that has captivated whisky enthusiasts worldwide. Aberfeldy Distillery's commitment to tradition, the influence of its Highland surroundings, and the unique flavor profile of its whiskies combine to create an exceptional elixir that truly embodies the spirit of the Highlands.

The distillery's on-site production process includes an extra-long fermentation process in larch washbacks and distillation in tall pot stills, providing scenic views of the Perthshire hills. These meticulous processes contribute to the honeyed richness for which Aberfeldy whisky is renowned. Although Aberfeldy has gained popularity as a single malt, it remains an essential component of Dewar's blend, adding its characteristic heather honey flavor to America's top-selling Scotch whisky.
