Whisky Wednesday – Aberfeldy 16 yr old

Aberfeldy is situated in the centre of Scotland and within the HIGHLAND designation for whisky, some five miles east of Loch Tay, it relies on the fresh water stream Pitilie Burn, which runs alongside the distillery. The area contains many landmarks amongst them the Kenmore Bridge, built by the 3rd Earl in 1774 and the view from it was the inspiration for Robert Burns’s poem on the chimney piece of the Kenmore Inn.
It is the largest malt whisky component of Dewar’s Blended Whisky.

Abefeldy distill the liquid in copper pots, handmade by the same family for over a century, then age it to perfection.
A light, pure single malt with heather honey and notes of pineapple, toffee and vanilla. With water, more honey appears plus a hint of apple.
Aberfeldy recently installed a wood burner to fire up the stills with green energy. One more reason why Aberfeldy tastes a little better.

The 16yr Old expression scored highly at the Whisky Trail tasting at The Haven up against stiff competition  6/18 gave it 5/5!
You can find Aberfeldy on the The Haven Scotch list. Summer/Fall
