Aberfeldy 18 Year Old 2002 (Cask #3080) - Exceptional Cask Series70 cl, 52%
One of Dewar’s recent series of “The Last Great Malt” which looks at the malt whiskies that makes up the famous old blend. Indeed, it continues to be a whisky which is comparatively rare as a single malt, and mostly used in blends, despite a production capacity of 3.5million litres. This whisky has been aged 16 years in bourbon casks, before being finished in Oloroso sherry casks. On the nose, this dram has lovely appley aromas, with touchs of butterscotch, vanilla and dried fruit Whilst the palate brings juicy fruit flavours of orange, cherries and apples, with hints of woodspice and barrel char. The finish is lingering with oak, vanilla and tropical fruits. Delicious stuff at an excellent age.
