Product details

Aberfeldy distillery was opened by the John Dewar & Sons blending firm in the late 1890s – though it wasn’t until 1999 that Aberfeldy was sold as a single malt in its own right. The distillery is known as the ‘Golden Dram’ because its water source, The Pitilie Burn (which translates from Scots Gaelic to ‘small river’), contains deposits of alluvial gold, which is still panned today! Its hallmark flavour is rich honey, which is thanks to lengthy fermentation times.

This is the marvellous 16 Year Old from its core range, released in late 2015. It’s finished in first-fill ex-Oloroso sherry casks, bringing heaps of festive dried fruits and spices to the whisky. Stephanie Macleod is Aberfeldy’s master blender, who made history when she was the first woman to be awarded Master Blender of the Year in the 2019 International Whisky Competition.
