Situated along the River Tay, the burgh of Aberfeldy has a population of fewer than 2,000 and is the subject of the famous Robert Burns Poem ""The Birks of Aberfeldy."" In addition, the town is home to the eponymous distillery, which was founded in 1896 by John Dewar & Sons. The distillery was closed during World War I and World War II, as the British government rationed the supply of grains during wartime to ensure an adequate food supply. In 1972, however, the distillery was rebuilt and retrofitted with four new copper pot stills.
Part of The Last Great Malts of Scotland campaign, Aberfeldy whiskies are crafted from water sourced from the Pitilie Burn, famed for its gold deposits. Aberfeldy 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made exclusively from barley milled through the distillery's Porteus mill before being mashed and then fermented in stainless steel washbacks. Following fermentation, the whisky is distilled once through Aberfeldy's copper-pot wash stills and then again through its copper-pot spirit stills. Then, this Aberfeldy single malt is matured in a combination of casks previously used to mature bourbon.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
Notes of incense on the nose, heather honey with a fruity softness, notes of pineapple, toast, and cereal. The palate is full-bodied, syrupy, lingering on the tongue like a liqueur. The finish is full of flavor, with perfumed characteristics and spice, with bitter Seville oranges and a dry finish.
