Aberfeldy 20 years old 70cl 43°
Aberfeldy 20 years old is an exceptional Single Malt with floral and fruity notes.
This Small Batch edition is the result of a maturation process that began in 1998 in seven different Bourbon casks before being matured in first-fill Sherry casks in 2014 for bottling 5 years later, in 2019.
The result is an ample and intense expression with notes of heather, spices and honey.

The Aberfeldy distillery is located in the southern part of the Highlands (Perthshire).
Aberfeldy was founded in 1898 by the Dewar family, and is located in the Highland region. The distillery uses water from Pitilie Burn which is famous for its alluvial gold deposits.
Aberfeldy proceeds to a long fermentation of 70 hours allowing a greater development of the aromas, in particular that of honey. In addition, the use of large copper stills with their specific heights and shapes gives the whiskey its delicate and elegant character.
The Aberfeldy whiskey is very firm and reveals ample notes of cereals and fruit. This is the most potent of the Central Highlands malts.
