Aberfeldy is in the Eastern Highlands and was almost unknown until it was bought by Bacardi in 1998. Although never seen as a single malt prior to this, there are now two official releases: this 12 year old and a 21 year old. The majority of the production goes into blends, and Aberfeldy forms the heart of the Dewar's range of blended whisky, and the distillery also hosts the "Dewar's World of Whisky" visitor centre.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Grapey. Dusty. Chocolate limes. Nutty and green fruits. A wisp of smoke
Palate: An earthy, grapey creaminess. Light peppery vanilla. Limes and fruit salad chews. On the finish, cape gooseberries.
