Aberfeldy has a distinct character with rare honeyed notes.Aberfeldy singlt malt is distilled in Alembic Pot Stills, crafted by Forsyths. It is made of copper, and it makes the whisky to be fruity and rich honeyed flavour.
Aberfeldy 16yrs is matured in firts-fill, re-fill and re-char Bourbon casks first, then finished for 6 months in deluxe first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks.This give Aberfeldy a riched, honeyed, sherried and full like fruitcake, with dabs of rich dark chocolate and a soothingly mouth-coating finish.
Nose: Raisins and cinnamon at first, before moving onto butterscotch, caramel and apple slice. A touch of floral malt, too.
Palate: Well rounded and mellow, but not lazy at all. More apple at first, soon joined by clementine segments and honey on toast. A spark of ginger.
Finish: Waxy peels and oak.
