A ticket into the wonderful world of Aberfeldy.

Aberfeldy Distillery was founded by John Dewar & Sons, Ltd. in 1896, they opened their doors in 1898. It sits on the eastern outskirts of Aberfeldy, on the southern bank of the upper Tay. Aberfeldy sources its water from the Pitilie Burn, which runs alongside the distillery and is rich in alluvial gold. You won't find any nuggets in the bottle, but it is at least known to be exceptionally pure. Needless to say, these laddies make a pretty damn decent drink. Oh, and they are partnered with local beekeepers as well, raising awareness one hot toddy at a time.

The Aberfeldy 12 Year Old comes from the Last Great Malts series and is a great showcase as well as the perfect entry point into the lineup. It's a Highland Single Malt made from 100% malted barley that has spent its dozen years in American oak ― some ex-Bourbon, some ex-Sherry. Fruity & creamy, full-bodied, and well balanced, it's a treat for the senses that is bound to make you want to delve deeper into Aberfeldy.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Honeycomb

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is creamy as well as fruity with just a hint of smoke. The caramel, sherry, dried fruit, and coffee notes make for a well-rounded experience.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
There's sweetness and malt on the palate with notes of vanilla, almonds, cream, and some spicy oak. An ever so slight peatiness is there to spice things up.

Finish
The long finish has notes of citrus zest, apricots, ginger, malt, and a dash of chocolate. A pleasant nuttiness lingers.

Kris
Kris,
Rich vanilla and oak on the nose. A solid gold color and good legs. The taste is sweet, and not too spicy but no real finish.
 
Sue
Sue,
To me, Aberfeldy 12 is even better than Glenlivet 12! The very embodiment of smooth!
 
Steve
Steve,
Little more bite than I expected, overall though it was a good flavor and carried well. Tried it with and without a "Baller" cube in and that seem to settle things a bit when I added the ice. Not my first choice to dilute the drink.
 
Luis
Luis,
Smooth Vanilalicious!
 
Austin
Austin,
Buttery and sweet, reminds me of a sour apple caramel sucker

A bit dilute for my preference but the flavor is good. Vanilla with some slight almond and cocoa finish. After drinking it more, the flavor with the mouth feel almost reminds me of drinking butter. Not necessarily in a good way.

Love it! Peaty with a great after taste. I get the vanilla most in the after taste. Great price for a nice bottle.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
A decent highland, very little burn. Could have been improperly stored at some point, I get a chemical flavor almost like plastic in the middle.

This was smooth clean and almost too drinkable.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Smoothest drink I’ve had. Absolutely no burn. Vanilla and citrus on the nose. Malty sweetness, subtle peat, in a medium finish. Glad I grabbed this one, it’ll be a staple.

Because I first had a dram in Inverness and carried a bottle home to the US, I'm emotionally invested.
