  • Excerpt: One moment it’s light and fruity, the next some darker notes appear and then back to the lighter sweeter notes. It seems to shift in the glass, but there’s always a nice balance to the Aberfeldy 12 – a fun and flavorful dram I’m enjoying more and more with every sip!

  • Excerpt: The taste starts off thick and sweet, then explodes in a burst of cinnamon and other spices that fades to show notes of molasses and hazelnut. The finish is slightly tart.

  • Excerpt: I’ve just read my notes for the older ‘livery’, and it seems that what’s inside this lovely new bottle hasn’t changed. Solid malty malt.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: The finish offers just a touch of spice and at least nods toward the oak barrel, but it never attempts to complicate what comes across as an affordable sipper to get the night started.

  • Excerpt: There’s not a ton going on. None of it is bad, but this is pretty bland.

  • Intro:

    Aberfeldy 12yr is a core expression in the distillery's line. This particular bottling is presented at 40% ABV and generally inexpensive / easy to find.

  • Nose:

    Apples, pears, some honey. A little bit of bitterness on the nose, faint must, funk, pepper.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate, but thin. No heat, but not a ton of character either. Cream, apples, some pepper.

  • Finish:

    Short, bitter apple and some cream.

  • Overall:

    There’s not a ton going on. None of it is bad, but this is pretty bland.
