Tasting Notes

This excellent 19th Century distillery is coming into a new era of popularity in its third century of production. With its famed water source that runs with traces of gold, the Pitllie Burn, and its famous sweet honeyed character, Aberfeldy epitomizes the Highland style giving creating whiskies with weight, depth and great capacity for graceful long term aging.

Notes include the tell-tale clover honey, and baking spices, mixed with more nuanced notes of poached orchard fruits and fresh baked pastries.
