Aberfeldy Highland Single Malt Scotch 18 Year Old

#10 - Aberfeldy 18 Year Old Single Malt

Aberfeldy Highland Single Malt Scotch 18 Year Old....$109.99
Aging scotch in a secondary cask is tricky, and tinkering with a whisky that has already achieved 18 years of age is even riskier. This well-matured Aberfeldy spent its final months in red wine casks from Bordeaux under the bold vision and deft hand of malt master Stephanie Macleod. As a result, it soars above its station. Never intrusive, the red wine finish suggests Fig Newtons and dried cherries, building upon Aberfeldy’s classic honey-vanilla profile to evoke strawberry shortcake and flavors of jam and clotted cream on a fresh-baked scone. A complex, mature, and moreish whisky at an excellent price. —Jeffery Lindenmuth
