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.

    Surprisingly sweet for a highland malt. Big notes of spice on the nose, smoother than bigger, more expensive brands on the way down. Overall impressed. Quaffable - would certainly buy again for visitors and the like.

    Hands down the best I've tried. And I have had JW Blue, royal salute, Oban, Belvinie and others.

    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.
