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.

    Very nice for a 12 year old. Smooth and sweet honey with a bit of spice. Excellent value and tastes like an older scotch. I will buy again as this bottle is almost done.

    So, a friend of mine who know i love scotch purchase a bottle of the 12-year-old for me. I'm usually a Dewars blend guy, but this stuff is so familiar. No ice, just a splash of water. Thanks, John!

    Bought the 12 yr on sale - first try. Very drinkable with a bit of water. Warm Spice on the nose, reminds one of Halloween. A biit peppery on the toungue, with hint of fruit, but not too sweet. Finish is dry but stays on the top of the palette. I normally like the peaty whiskies, and more complex Highlands, but for the price of $30 this is fantastic stuff.

    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?
