What I say:
Sampled during the #HomeofDewars Tweet tasting held on 22nd November 2017. I have sampled Aberfeldy 12 Years Old during many visits to the distillery but never quite got the time or inclination to write down my own tasting notes. This has now been corrected!
Full amber gold (10/20), slow medium droplet tears and finer legs
Honey, lots of it, a touch of malt and orchard fruit, pineapple and grapefruit, creamy toffee and fudge
Syrupy thick honey initially then a touch of spice, cinnamon, and woody oak & rosemary wood, leather, orange peel, vanilla fudge and creamy highland toffee
Medium, pineapple and ginger upside down cake & drying oak
Deliciously honeyed dram rather quite simple appearing at first but actually quite complex.
Don’t take my word for it:
