What's in a name? Aberfeldy 21 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Aberfeldy 21 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Honey, fruity. Thick malt, enlivened by a fresh, zesty quality.
Palate: Smooth, vanilla, undulating, refined smoke.
Finish: Peters out gently, perhaps some ripe white peach notes and a good wave of honey.
Without a doubt the best scotch I have had up or on the rocks. My quest say it is the best they have tasted.
Smooth and a little sweet but no real nose and no finish. A drop or two of water opens up the oak on the finish but this isn't worth buying at any price, tho the deal at spec's is tempting if you don't want to drop the cash on something like The Balvenie 21y Portwood.
Honestly, the Dewar's 12y was MUCH better and the same price. Lesson learned: "Don't buy scotch at discount prices; there's always a reason!"
Nice and smokey! A great nip to impress anyone with!
Yes, it's an inexpensive foray into the realm of 21 year old scotches but don't let the price fool you. It's a very nice whisky at a very affordable price. About. $40 at Specs. As always, taste is subjective. I think it's a great buy.
