A marvelously-aged Single Malt from Aberfeldy finished in Bordeaux Red Wine casks for a luscious experience.

Aberfeldy is a smaller production house in the Highlands along the River Tay. It was actually founded by John Dewer himself in 1896. And even though Dewers is a large producer and a subsidiary of Bacardi, Little Aberfeldy occupies a special spot in their history. In fact, Dewers has located their museum and "World of Whisky" attraction there.

They keep things simple at Aberfeldy. All of their grain is locally grown and they use only native Scottish yeasts. The water flows from a stream passing by the distillery — Pitilie Burn. All of their Whisky is aged in ex-Bourbon casks on site. Don’t you just love it when a division of a large company like Dewers and Bacardi keeps one foot firmly planted in the past like this?

We love a little Aberfeldy in the evening… or the mid-day… or just about anytime we can respectfully lay our thirsty lips to a dram. But when you can get your hands on one of these limited editions, it’s even better.

What we have here is batch #2920 of Aberfeldy’s 18 year-old French Red Wine Cask-Finished Single Malt. They have aged their signature Spirit for a full eighteen years in first-fill, refill, and re-charred Bourbon casks. That’s pretty special as it is. But they have finished this lovely dram up to five more months in those Bordeaux Red Wine barrels. And it doesn’t get much better than this.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Aberfeldy is the only distillery founded by the Dewer Famliy. Water is ALWAYS important.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
