“This fresh and springy 12 year old is from Dewar’s, a brand known best for blended Scotch. This single malt is “the heart of all the Dewar’s blends,” the producer says. Despite delicate notes of vanilla and white flowers, this whisky surprises the palate with a waft of peat before heading into a crisp finish.” Wine Enthusiast, 92 points *Best Buy* (12/2013)

“Nose: Beautifully intense malt with a cidery-apple fruitiness. Gentle oak and honey round off superbly. Palate: Fresh, almost crisp mouthfeel with outstanding sweet maltiness and an almost Irish pot-still firm fruitiness. Mouthwatering. Finish: Softly spiced with a long, rich malt follow-through. Comment: Really outstanding example of massively complex, classy but undiscovered malt.” – Jim Murray, Whisky Magazine – 8.5 points (out of 10)

On the palate, Aberfeldy is fine and sophisticated, offering hints of salted caramel, golden honey, juicy barley malt, cereal grains, almonds, and orange juice. The body is medium to full and it’s incredibly easy to drink. The finish is dry with nuances of citrus, malt, and a bit of spice.
