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.

This is the latest in Aberfeldy's annual wine cask series, originally made available exclusively in the UK from the distillery. Initially spending 18 years in a combination of 1st fill Bourbon, re-char and refill casks, the whisky has undergone a finishing period of around 4-5 months in Pauillac Bordeaux casks. Malt Master, Stephanie MacLeod, chose these casks to bestow secondary textures and fruits with luscious, red berry characteristics. Once you taste this whisky we think you will agree on her choices.

Nose: The barrel toast is immediately apparent with notes of dark brown sugar and caramel-covered cookies also emerging.

Palate: The wine-driven fruit is more evident on the palate, which gives the body a berry-heavy, almost plummy element.

Finish: The wine elements follow through to the finish with some tannic elements tamping back the up-front fruitiness and drying things out.
