Whisky or Whiskey

Insider knowledge: Aberfeldy 12 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Aberfeldy 12 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

Aberfeldy 12 Bottling Note

The classic 12 Year Old Aberfeldy single malt Scotch whisky, distilled in the Highlands. While the label sadly no longer features a red squirrel, it now comes with a rather handsome black and rose-gold colour palate to match the rich, malty flavour profile.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Creamy. Some sherried fruit with a trailing hint of smoke.

Palate: Sweet, malty, a gentle peat but nonetheless the mouth feel is very clean.

Finish: Malt, a faint hint of citrus.

User Reviews of the Aberfeldy 12 Year Old

Frank Q

Clean sweet a little spicy apples

10th August 2014

Nice flavore

I thought it was sweat, nice round flavor, mate some honey or floral notes. I tasted peat on the finish I'm not a big peaty scotch fan but it wasn't overpowering. I was a great after work drink.

A proper Scotch Malt

Maybe, the best single malt I've tasted.

21st June 2014

name; OZZIE WEBB

This is a very good 'sippin' scotch, room tenp with a small splash of water' good body, great taste, and, most importantly, the peat shines through.

A Proper Scotch Malt

Ignore the detractors as this is a very good dram. Ive been tasting mals and bourbons for over 40 years and can say without a lie that i keep a bottle in my cupboard

A very pleasant experience . Enjoyed the Aberfeldy 12 from the first sip to the last . Smooth and easy on the palate , no unpleasant aftertaste .

11th January 2014

Works for Me

Good drink enjoy the tones, try it with a good cigar and makes the perfect end to the day

31st December 2013

Excellent drink

Deep and earthy, and a very different taste to many other highlands - almost mimics an Islay on the back of the throats.

27th December 2013

Brown Paper Bag

This Whiskey should be sold from under the counter in Brown paper bags and not offered to the general public because...I WANT IT ALL. Taste it, buy it, and enjoy it....it's worth every Penny,Cent,Dime.

26th December 2013

So difficult for in Asia.

Its such a good whisky, only thing is its so difficult to buy it

4th December 2013

best single malt I've tasted

A highly enjoyable single malt. Best enjoyed neat.

16th November 2013

Subtly Unusual

Very smooth and with great, long, lingering aftertastes. Not infused with classic whisky dramas, but very, very drinkable.

7th November 2013

Dermot Worthington

This bottle was roughly €33 about a month ago. Why the 40% price increase?

7th November 2013

smooth and tasty

What I want from a malt is something that doesn't burn the back of my throat but still has a bite and also tastes damn good. This one does it.

3rd October 2013

Inoffensive but refined

You could dismiss this whisky as unexciting but take the time to nose it in a Glencairn glass or similar and ensure that you taste it properly and I guarantee you'll be hard pressed to find any faults. Marmalade and honey notes on the nose, smooth and creamy on the palate with a delicate honeysuckle sweetness and a lingering finish. This is quality stuff! 9/10 at the price.

23rd July 2013

Happily surprised

Delicious whisky. Pear and orange peel. Sweet and smooth with a slight smokiness to it. An amazing scotch for its price range!

13th July 2013

Mediocre

I have tried way better, yet still better than many out there. Give it a try and see. Looking forward to your reviews.

13th July 2013

Tasted in Scotland

Tasted it before it was exported. Should have bought several bottles before leaving Scotland.

12th June 2013

One of the best !!!!

Ignore the "scotch snobs" - this is one of the best single malts there is. Having tried them all, this rates amongst the finest In the world.

8th June 2013

Love it!

I have to have a bottle of Aberfeldy at all time. It doesn't feel right to not have one. If you just love Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Etc. etc. Don't apply. This single-malt is simple and yet complex. The smell is fruity pineapple and decay??? I will call this peat. It has some smoke which comes from the peat but is not overpowering or medicinal in the least. Dark Chocolate finish. I love it again! Peace

George - Aberfeldy 12

Visited the distillery for the first time this year, despite visiting the area every year for the past 12 or so. Fabulous experience; a reminder that Dewars deserve a very great deal of credit for having propelled whisky to its current proud position. Aberfeldy is the heart of all Dewars blends, and is rather good as a single malt; really recommend it as a dessert malt, or a sweet nightcap. Nose: Honey dominates. Floral heather and sherry with a suggestion of syrupy fruit. Sweet barley and gentle peat mellowing in the background. Palate: Cereal sweetness and creamy, heather honey really prominent. An implication of peat with fairly robust notes of sherry and fruit. Finish: Sweet malt and honey still dominate. Trace of vanilla, and the mildest hint of spiced currants and peel - like a big, rich Chelsea bun.

Top Shelf

Beginners only? Someone's tastebuds must be broken or something. This Scotch is one of the finest examples you'll taste in the 12 yr, $40 range. It has a quality near Suntory Yamazaki and Hibiki who've won global medals year after year. No one here mentions smoke. This whisky has a lot of smokiness, and a mature fine regal flavor.

26th March 2013

Direct and complex

This is a great Scotch. It has a big taste, but still has a nice subtley. We are in the realm of 'it is a matter of taste' here, but for a strong, direct character which stands up without losing its complexity, I like this Scotch.

26th July 2012

Among the best

I've tried many scotchs' but aberfeldy is damn good. Bought one from London to try and very happy I did cos it's my new whiskey of choice. So smooth and has a sophisticated taste! Try one now!

9th July 2012

Great entry-level whisky

Aberfeldy is a great unpretentious, no-nonsense whisky with a delicious honey sweetness and appealing smoothness. Not particularly complex, but I'd say it's among the best 'introductory' malts around.

22nd June 2012

sublime aberFELDY!

sorry!

27th May 2012

sublime aberfledy

A sublime, beautiful drink. Don't listen to the snobs, buy it!!

27th May 2012

Aberfeldy 12

Fruit, honey, no peat - sweet malt!!! I like it!!!

8th May 2012

Good Stuff!

I have tried Crown Royal, and Bushmills however Aberfeldy was softer on the palate, smoother down the throat, and did not leave the burning alcoholic taste as other brands. I enjoyed it completely.

15th March 2012

My Go To!

This is a Single Malt that I can get comfortable with every evening at 5pm! This is a malt that does not need to be eased into, but yet has those special smooth notes of much more expensive single malts. A fantastic malt to introduce to any other scotch drinker without the fear embarrassment!

27th December 2011

Oh dear...

For beginners only? Please!! Who do some of these whisky snobs bother us with their own personal taste dressed up as education. This is a fine malt and its worth depends entirely on your personal preference

Let's face it......

This is NOT rotgut........I also find most reviews of 12 year old whiskeys to be too finicky. Also, if you want good stuff like this, stay away from duty free and get to a supermarket of the country you're visiting. They're bound to have what duty free sells and they'll have it for less. I paid 24 euros for my 12 yr old Aberfeldy in Italy. Duty free had it for 35. What do you think I'D pay?? I use to get 12yr old Jameson from a bartender in Italy for $17 a bottle.....you just have to look.... By the way, this is DAMN good single malt......gotta stop typing before the buzz kicks in....bottoms up!!!

17th January 2011

doesn't bear repeated drinking

pleasant at first - smooth and creamy - but, too sickly sweet to last. Like fast food or cake - nice for a quick refreshment, but too much leaves you wishing you'd had less.

11th January 2011

Average or a little more

Citrussy & malty, but also too much caramel added. Plus this unpleasant fizz effect on the tongue...For beginners only.

The Best to Enjoy it EveryWhere , Smoothly fruity.
