The distillery team are delighted to launch this new limited edition Aberfeldy Single Malt.
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”
To celebrate the release of the new whisky, Stephanie and Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery Brand Ambassador Gary Ross, will be hosting a virtual tasting on 24th September at 7pm.
