A much overlooked whisky.
Aberfeldy doesn't do a lot in terms of being unique. Refreshingly enough, the brand seems to acknowledge this. It's a highlands 12 year old whisky. It isn't terribly overprized and it's good.
The nose is rather bland at first, but given time, develops a rather pleasant, albeit faint, maltish quality.
Tastewise, this dram delivers quite well. Malt, honey, chocolate, a little spiciness on the back of the tongue.
Aftertaste is just nice and rather warming, with nuts, milk chocolate, vanilla and honey.
As stated below, not very memorable, but still a great mid-week dram, a good addition to any whisky cabinet and above all else a great introduction. This is the first dram I pick to give friends to enthuse them into exploring beyond their terrible "i love whisky, I drink Jack Daniels all the time" mindset.
