Initially spending 18 years in a combination of refill casks, the whisky has undergone a finishing period of around 4-5 months in First-fill Pauilliac wine casks, a rich and complex red wine from Bordeaux.
Malt Master, Stephanie MacLeod, carefully monitored maturation and flavour development in the casks until the desired flavour profile had been achieved. Pauillac is a robust wine, so the goal was to use this cask type to complement and elevate the signature character of Aberfeldy, not mask it.
Stephanie comments, “Pauillac casks are the aristocrats of the Médoc, they provide notes of black cherries, blackberries and a cedar wood spice. Aberfeldy’s wonderfully soft signature honey and creamy vanilla notes are invigorated with swathes of plush ripe fruits and lovely nutty aromas to create an incredibly elegant and fruitful whisky”

    The whisky that got me back into whisky on a trip to California. The Aberfeldy 18 year old is a phenomenal whisky and a permanent fixture in my whisky cabinet.

    and easy to sip.
    I completely enjoy this scotch. I only recently discovered it, and have thoroughly enjoyed my first bottle.
