Aberfeldy 16 Years Old is bottled at 40% abv and entirely finished in premium Oloroso sherry casks
Built by the Dewar family in 1898, the distillery is one of a handful remaining in Perthshire. The house style is rich but ‘smooth and accessible’ with an emphasis on notes of honey. The company says the long fermentation time of 70 hours allows for greater flavour development as an extended fermentation encourages the creation of more esters which in turn give the whisky fruitiness.
Available in 11 markets around the world, the new expression is priced at £62.00.
