ABERFELDY

First planned in 1896 by the sons of John Dewar, Aberfeldy Distillery is the only Scotch whisky distillery built by the Dewar family. There were a number of reasons behind the decision of Tommy and John Alexander Dewar to build their whisky distillery in the heart of Scottish Highlands Perthshire, on the outskirts of the village of Aberfeldy. The presence of a superb natural water source in The Pitilie Burn (or small river) which runs past the distillery into The River Tay, was undoubtedly a big factor in the decision. The gold-rich waters of the Burn are used to make Aberfeldy whisky to this day. There were also excellent transport links by train to nearby Perth, bringing fuel and barley to the distillery, and returning the finished product to be blended and bottled. This made the process of bringing the whisky to market very efficient. The line is no longer open, but a steam engine with carriage bearing whisky barrels remains on the site.

The distinct character of the Aberfeldy 12 is the result of uniting the Highland's finest natural resources. Created with fresh spring water from the nearby Pitilie Burn, they are truly "Scottish" Scotches, as only Scottish Optic Barley is used. A fruity, clean and polished malt with a touch of honey and spice, this expression is an excellent introduction to this Highland distillery. Aberfeldy's main claim to fame is as the heart of the excellent Dewar's blend.

Nose: Creamy. Some sherried fruit with a trailing hint of smoke. Prune, custard and espresso bean.

Palate: Sweet, malty, a gentle peat but nonetheless the mouth feel is very clean. Vanilla, peaches in cream and subtle oak.

Finish: Ginger, malt, nutty nougat and maybe a little grapefruit zest.
