Aberfeldy Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 year old

Aberfeldy 12 Years Old Whisky is mellowed for 12 Years in handmade oak casks, this smooth, sweet dram offers rich rewards for those who like to dig deeper. This is a single malt whisky that is one step beyond the conventional, mainstream offerings and a more interesting choice than the classic malts commonly available. Scents of spices and honeyed plump fruits. Syrupy, with lots of vanilla and fudge and just a whisper of smoke on the finish.
I pick up baked yellow fruits (banana, pear, quince) and round, lightly toasted scents of malt in the aroma. Palate entry offers clean, crisp tastes of dry breakfast cereal and lightly toasted barley malt; by midpalate, the dry to off-dry flavor profile includes oak-induced vanilla, light toffee, and nougat. Ends on a woody note. -P.P.
