A perfect introduction to Aberfeldy, the 12 Year Old is fruity with subtle notes of honey and spice. A great value-for-money whisky from the distillery that is the heart of Dewars' blends.

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.

    Excellent product. Tastes as good or better than most higher priced scotch whiskeys.

    Bought on a whim. Pretty tasty. Added a bit of water. Tastes decidedly fruity, oaky, and actually quite a bit like... tea? Interesting and drinkable. I may have added a bit too much water to my glass, as it tastes a bit watered down (IMAGINE THAT!?), but I know for next time. This is a very tasty, reasonably priced scotch.

    Its like you are drinking warm honey who was set on fire. Not burning or sharp, but as smooth as malt syrup. I must admit I dont like Whisky until someone recomandet this brand.

    I borderline love this. It came highly recommended. First impression was rich and smooth with a light spice. It is definitely on my list of good ones but not sure if its a favorite. I give it 4 stars for its appeal.

    The nose is bright, with fresh apple as well as a distinct apple cider note. The palate is slightly richer than the nose, with light wood notes integrated nicely with honey, faint beeswax, and light spice. It's a fairly short and somewhat thin finish. It's not the most complicated single malt and for me, drinks more like a blended whisky - that's not a criticism, just an observation. It's pretty good. Great summertime whisky. I would be interested in trying the 21.

    I'm more a bourbon drinker but I try to get to know scotch, I picked a bottle of this one on sales and it wasn't what I expected. It's really fruity on the nose and the taste was really clean, kind of refreshing. It almost felt line I was drinking cider. It's not what I was expecting from a whisky, but I was pleasantly surprised and I feel like it would be the best introduction to whisky for my friends who feel like whisky is too harsh and strong.

    Just had a bottle bought for me for my birthday. It is now my favourite single malt, used to be Balvenie doublewood. This is a lovely easy to drink whisky that I will definitely buy, and enjoy again and again.

    Not bad for a Scotch. The pro is that Aberfeldy doesn't taste as overpowering as many other Scotch brands. The con is that it doesn't have a whole lot of other flavours to make up for it. A good way to describe Aberfeldy is that the way a light beer tastes in comparison to its regular version, Aberfeldy tastes a bit like a light scotch. All the normal flavours you'd expect are there but they come off fairly toned down.

    I will buy this one again. Has a good burn to it with a taste mainly of the Oak cask. Not a complicated whisky and I would disagree with the comments that state this is a smooth whisky. However, this is an easy whisky to refil your glass to, again and again and again, well, you get the picture right?

    This is one of those "blank slate" whiskies. No sherry, no peat. As a guy who tends to go for sherry and peat I forget about these. This is a really good whisky and I think it's relatively complex for something so "plain". On the nose I get honey and nutty barley mixed with something sweet like fruit. On the palate a nice nutmeg-like spice mixes in. The finish is surprisingly long and warming, with a bitter orange or lemon peel note that mixes in perfect balance. My only complaint is that this is only 40% abv. Very good stuff. Although I'm sure Dewars is greatly improved by the presence of Aberfeldy, in my opinion this stuff is best served neat and on its own

    This whisky is near the top of my list for value. An excellent dram with a beautiful finish.

    Better than Glenlivet 12 in my opinion but not as good as Macallan 12. Still a newby but side by side tasting tonight.

    First time buying and I will definitely buy again. New to single malts but if I find more like this I will be happy.
