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.

    I bought this for my father, who has been a whisky drinker his whole life. From the first sip, he could tell that this was something special – it's incredibly smooth, and the taste is absolutely wonderful.

    This is by far one my favourite whiskies. It has an excellent smoothness to it, fruit and honey on the nose and palate. Delicious.

    Definitely one of the most smooth and easy to drink malts I've ever tried. Fruit and clear honey straight away on the palate. The warm finish with honey notes is outstanding.

    I do like a single malt but this is by far the best I've tried. Its smooth and sweet with a nose of apple and pear and a bit of caramel, with a warm finish and a mild spice on the tongue. Lovely.

    Love it. I am generally a big fan of smokey Islay whiskies but got this one as a birthday present and am enjoying the smooth, almost sweet, flavor immensely. Great addition to my collection as a counterpart to my Islays

    Picked up a litre bottle in Edinburgh duty free for 42 pound, really fruity with a very distant smokeyness on the nose. Fresh and crisp on the palate with a spicy finish. An excellent dram for the price

    I got this from my kids for Father’s Day (thanks kids). I buy lots of Scotch for under 100$ and this is MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE! It’s incredibly smooth with a fruity hint and just a great Scotch. You’ve really gotta try this one if you haven’t.
