Traditionally produced single malt with a full, round taste and the incomparable honey notes of the Aberfeldy distillery, mild and sweet beginning, nicely balanced blend of raisins, caramel, cinnamon, a hint of green apple, merging into strong orange notes, which develop on the tongue to dark chocolate.

Aberfeldy 16 years Single Malt

The Aberfeldy 16 years Single Malt is a traditional single malt with a full and round taste, a special bottling from the destillery Aberfeldy in the Scottish Highlands. It is located in the town of Aberfeldy and is one of the oldest distilleries of Perthshire, which is famous for its sweet and mild whiskys. It was founded in 1898 by the Dewar family and is owned by Bacardi since 1998. Bacardi made under their direction some investments in the distillery and also expanded the product portfolio by some very interesting bottlings.

The distillery Aberfeldy draws its water from the source Pitilie Burn, which is known for its purity and its proportion of gold. This was also the inspiration for the shining golden letters on the design of their bottles. From this particular water and Scottish barley they produce a rich whisky, created in a 70-hour fermentation. The firing process takes place in copper kettles, which have been handcrafted by a Scottish family business for more than a century, according to an old tradition.

The business of Aberfeldy has developed splendidly in recent years. Aberfeldy whiskys are well-known for their unique honey notes. Today a wide range of single malts is available, from a 12-year-old single malt to a very successful 21-year-old version. Their fine 16-year-old brother has a particularly strong expressiveness of the individual flavors on the palate. No doubt, that the master distiller understands his craft! It convinces us with a mild and sweet beginning, nicely balanced blend of raisins, caramel, cinnamon, herbs, a hint of green apple and a freshly mown hay meadow, merging into strong orange notes, which develop on the tongue to dark chocolate, butterscotch and licorice.

Even after the short but spicy finish, the hint of chocolate behind delicate wooden notes remains in the mouth. The right sip for the end of the day.

    Mr. Whisky

    Schon in der Nase recht komplex, auf der Zunge geht er dann richtig auf. Sanfter, komplexer Whisky, tolles Eichenaroma, was ganz Besonderes. Ich genieße immer eine schöne Zigarre zu meinen Whisky und dabei kommen die einzelnen Noten noch besser zu Geltung. In dieser Alters- und Preisklasse hervorragend!

    Aroma: Top, im Vergleich zum 12er zwar verwandt, aber ein deutlicher Sprung in Richtung Karamell! Weniger beißend, viel weicher. Sehr angenehm!
    Geschmacklich toppt er den 12 er dadurch, dass alle Geschmacksnoten einfach eine Spur intensiver vorhanden sind. Er lädt zum längeren Verweilen ein und zwingt zu kleineren Schlückchen, weil man sie für wertvoller empfindet. Es gesellt sich zudem noch ein vages Nussaroma hinzu. Vielleicht Macadamia. Für Whiskykenner einfach ein toller Whisky. Am besten Ohne Eis genießen.
