A single malt Scotch you definitely want to fill out your Whisky fleet.

Aberfeldy Distillery was founded by the 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. Aberfeldy uses these waters exclusively. Needless to say, these laddies make a pretty damn decent drink.

Their Aberfeldy 21 Year Old single malt is double distilled, made exclusively from barley milled through the distilleries very own Porteus mill, and matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks.

This Whisky is a plethora of aromas and flavors that will captivate your senses and keep your taste buds quite titillated. On the nose it has an aromas of toasted malt, honey, fruit cake and citrus that give way to notes of heathered smoke, caramel, creamy vanilla and ash. The finish is long and spicy, with a touch of charcoal and stone fruits.

Aberfeldy has their fair share of shiny things, but their 21 YO single malt earned the silver medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013. It also won gold at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in 2013 and was named the "Best Highland Single Malt Whisky” at the World Whiskies Awards in 2014.

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.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
