Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, Aberfeldy 18 Year exhibits an enchanting amber hue with glints of golden sunshine. The viscosity displayed upon swirling suggests a whisky of medium body and refined texture.
A sniff reveals a rich tapestry of aromatic impressions, most notably vanilla, honey, and a bouquet of dried fruit—apricot and figs—wrapped in a delicate layer of oak and subtle smoke.
Upon tasting, the palate is greeted with the unmistakable sweetness of malt, contrasted beautifully by the spiciness of black pepper and cinnamon. These are effortlessly layered upon a melange of fruity undertones, primarily composed of cooked apples and ripe peaches. As the whisky airs, a gentle trace of dark chocolate emerges, further complexifying the already intricate palate.
The finish is refined and enduring, allowing flavors of toasted almonds and a dash of citrus to linger. As the finish unfolds, notes of oak and a wisp of smoke gently ebb away, leaving a warming, almost creamy, sensation.
Silky smooth with just the right amount of weight, the whisky possesses a velvety mouthfeel, reinforcing its status as an exceptional dram for sipping and savoring.
