Aberfeldy 12 Year Old

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Aberfeldy 12 Year Old to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

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, honeyed flavour profile.

A classic Highland dram, Aberfeldy 12 year old single malt whisky is a creamy, sweet and gently smoky example of what the region produces. A great American oak character comes through too.

Aberfeldy Golden Hot Toddy recipe:

- 50ml of Aberfeldy 12 Year Old
- 1/2 shot of local honey
- 1/2 shot of lemon juice

Combine the above ingredients in a mug and top up with hot water. Garnish with lemon, a cinnamon stick, and some star anise to spread the cheer of this cosy classic.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Creamy. Some sherried fruit with a trailing hint of smoke. Prune, custard and espresso bean.

Palate: Sweet, malty, a gentle peat but nonetheless the mouth feel is very clean. Vanilla, peaches in cream and subtle oak.

Finish: Ginger, malt, nutty nougat and maybe a little grapefruit zest.

Aberfeldy 12 Year Old Reviews

Lovely smooth malt.

A lovely soft fruity, honeyed Highland malt. Smooth yet packed with flavour it is very drinkable.

Delicious for yourself or as a gift

This is a really safe buy for a gift for someone who likes Single Malts or for yourself! ;). It is easily drinkable, smooth honey flavour but still with lots of different flavours going on. Delicious straight, with water or just on the rocks. Highly recommend it.

A gentler malt but still with a decent flavour

It's been a while since I last had an Aberfeldy and then it was their 8 year old malt. This is a different beast altogether. Darker and with a stronger flavour but still quite mild compared with other single malts. Slightly smokey best suited for those who prefer a gentler malt. Quite good but I can only give it 3 stars.

Bit dull.

Drinking in 2022. Fine, smooth. But a bit dull really. No wonder it is marketed with a Toddy recipe really. Save your dollars for something more adventurous.

Definitely worth trying.

I had never tasted it until Burn's Night this year. A little bit on the haggis and a bit left in the glass convinced me to order a bottle. It is a very attractive smooth malt which I am enjoying very much.

Great new discovery

Usually a Glenmorangie/McCallan guy, so I found this 12 yo on sale for 39.00$ so I thought let's do this! I was greatly impressed it was better than expected very impressed with it's palate, smoothness and aftertaste, not as good as the "McCallan" but right up there with Glenlivet, Talisker, Ardberg. I think it was a great discovery would buy again.

Inexpensive and Enjoyable

My goal is to try every single-malt scotch that I can afford, and while I have a long way to go, I've had some nice variety in the bottles I've tasted. My favorites so far have been from the smoky end of the spectrum, such as the 10yr bottlings of Laphroaig, Ardbeg, and Talisker.

I've also enjoyed Glenmorangie 10, several varieties of The Glen Livet, Glenfiddich 12, and Glen Moray 12.

When I picked this up today, I was eager to taste it as usual, but there was some other shopping to do before I was able to get home and crack the bottle open. While following my wife around the supermarket, I was on my phone reading these reviews, and getting nervous.

While I enjoy the peated offerings as much as anyone, there is room in the whisky world for bottles like this. It's inexpensive and unassuming, but it's still an enjoyable dram, and I'll keep it around.

Understated excellence

I don't think 12 year old whiskies get much better than this. Bear in mind that this is a very "clean" dram; no massive peat or port casks to hide behind. This is just straightforward, very well made single malt.
Aberfeldy 12 is sweet, but not overly so, smooth but not artificially so, with a lovely mouthfeel. You can still very much taste the barley; it's not trying to be anything else.
I like it very much.

Took a bottle to Canada to visit family there, I think I converted a lot of Canadians, they loved it, so do I.
