Customer Rating

A fruity, clean and polished malt with a touch of honey and spice, Aberfeldy 12 Year Old is an excellent introduction to this Highland distillery. Aberfeldy's main claim to fame is as the heart of the excellent Dewar's blend but whiskies like this are putting it firmly in the spotlight.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Fresh and fruity – freshly cut melon, green apple and pear – along with hot toast and honey with a sprinkling of freshly grated nutmeg.

    Palate: Lovely smooth texture, with rich honeyed fruit freshened up with crisp apple notes. Gentle, sweet spice adds to the complexity. Very drinkable.

    Finish: The rich mouthfeel lingers, with the honeyed fruit lasting longest. Good balance.

    Comment: A lovely dram that will please lovers of fresh, fruity whiskies.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Full, golden yellow.

    Nose: Almost incense-like, heather honey with a fruity softness, notes of pineapple, toast and cereal.  Syrupy, lingering on the tongue like a liqueur.

    Body: Full bodied.

    Finish:  Full flavour, the perfume characteristics become more spicy, with a bitter hint of Seville oranges in a decidedly dry finish.

    If this was the only malt in the world, it wouldn''t be the end of the world. Smooth, soft, sweet fruit but big and rewarding, and with a clean finish. Value as a 12 year old I''d say.

    Best single malt I have ever had, very smooth. Even better than much more expensive kinds I have tried.

    Shared a bottle with a friend over a long weekend ice climbing in Norway a great way to relax and top off the day! An excellent light and sweet whiskey, honeyed and slightly floral flavour.

    This is an excellent whisky - a rich, smooth Highlander with more than a hint of honey and spices. One of my favourite whiskies of this flavour profile.
