Aberfeldy 21 Year OldThe Aberfeldy Distillery was established over 100 years ago in 1898, on the south bank of the river Tay. Aberfeldy combines the fresh spring water of the Pitilie burn with the skill of generations of craftsmen to produce an outstanding single malt whisky renowned for its heather honey softness and full body.
Nose: Exotic fruit, under-ripe crushed ground cherry and some honey.
Palate: Sensual delivery that would be recognizedand wholly appreciated by fans of Highland Park thanks to the busy honey and semi-hidden waves of smoke; a few oaky touches appear early but enhance in a toasty rather than life-threatening way; the spices rave early on then settle.
Finish: A gentlemanly exit with its honeyed head held high to the last; no oaky screaming and shouting, just a few bitter-sweet farewells.
