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.

    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.

    Lovely, mild on the tongue with a slight burn at the end. Subtle honey notes and for me an earthy, almost fresh cut grass taste on the finish
