Aberfeldy 18 is a single malt whisky distilled in Scotland using traditional techniques. It has been aged for at least eighteen years, resulting in an exceptionally smooth and mellow flavor with notes of honey, toffee and oak on the nose. On the palate it is light yet full-bodied, with subtle flavors of gingerbread spice and nutmeg. The finish is long lasting and pleasant without being overly sweet or heavy.
This particular Aberfeldy 18 expression has been crafted from carefully selected casks that have been handpicked by master distillers over time to create a unique flavour profile which balances sweetness with smokiness perfectly. This special attention to detail results in a truly remarkable whisky that stands out amongst its peers as one of the finest Scottish whiskies available today.
The cost of this Scotch can vary depending on where you buy it but generally expect to pay around £50 – £70 per bottle (750ml). Whilst not cheap, this price does reflect quality so if you’re looking for something special then consider spending more than usual; your taste buds will thank you!
Aberfeldy was established way back in 1896 when John Dewar opened his first Distillery near Pitlochry following decades spent perfecting his craft making blended Highland whiskies such as Dewar’s White Label Whisky – still popular today amongst whisky enthusiasts worldwide! Since then they’ve gone on to produce some exceptional drams including their award winning 12 year old offering which won gold at both IWSC & ISC awards 2017/2018 proving once again why Aberfeldy remain one of Scotland’s most renowned producers even after 125 years!
Overall we’d recommend giving this Scotch a try if you’re looking for something richly flavoured yet easy drinking enough for all tastes; great value too considering its age and complexity no matter what your budget may be! We give Aberfieldd 18 high marks across the board:
Overall score 91/100
