One Sentence: 
A special limited edition Highland dram from the golden river.      
 
About the Producer:
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, of all the locations possible, Dewers has located their museum and their “World of Whisky” attraction there. That says a lot. 
 
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. Ana 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 keep one foot firmly planted in the past like this? We do. 
 
About the Product:
Cadenhead is another independent bottler that purchases a cask or two at a time from larger distilleries—and sometimes smaller ones like Aberfeldy. What matters to them is that they find something unique or special that is in too limited a supply for the those distilleries to effectively market. Otherwise, these odd-lot casks of heavenly spirit would be destined to be sloshed into large vats of blended Whisky—and that’s no good, right? 
 
Aberfeldy directly issues Single Malt Whiskies that are 12, 18, and 21 years old. Cadenhead slipped in and grabbed a single cask and is letting us all have a crack at it at 17 years. It’s that odd-lot age statement that tells the tale. Any way you slice it, this is a perfectly-aged Highland dram served up at cask strength—so if you like your Whisky with a splash of water you will still be able to hang on to your “man card.”

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).
