Comment:
15. Oct 2017
Here we have another workhorse of the blend industry, since most of Aberfeldy's production ends up as key component of Dewar's. The nose of this 12-year-old Highlander is unimposing, grainy and slightly acidic with apple cider, heather honey and hints of vinegar. On the palate, it arrives silky, light and malty sweet before turning more spicy and indistinctly sour in the development. A surprisingly milky aftertaste with almonds, muesli and a touch of oak rounds off the experience. It's probably not a very memorable Single Malt, but nice enough to give it a try.

Nosing: SweetVanillaHoneyCaramelCakeFruit

Taste: VanillaCaramel marshmallow, then it goes into a baked spices sort of twist, quite pleasant.

Finish: CakeChocolate

Comment: this scotch reminds me of smores for some reason... maybe all the marshmallow sweetness and the baked graham crackers, not very chocolatey richness though

Nosing: FruitHoneyVanilla

Taste: OakSweetFruitSpices

Finish: Moderate

Comment: A 'mild' smooth drop. Like a vanilla cake topped with caramalised fruit and shaved nuts, dusted with spices and wrapped in a small wooden box made of oak.
