Tasting notes
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Initially slightly savoury, full and spicy, sweet sherry, tangerines and soft oak.
Palate: Smooth, spicy and nutty, honey, malt, more sherry and cocoa powder.
Finish: Long, with slightly bitter oranges, liquorice sticks and dark chocolate.
Comment: Aberfeldy handles sherry and age well. A fine example, but a shame this is bottled at 40% ABV.
Taster   Joe Bates
Nose: Light and wispy aromas of honey, ginger and limoncello liqueur.
Palate: Sweet honey predominates while in the background lurks plenty of citrus, Christmas-time clementines, along with a hint of warming cinnamon.
Finish: Sweet, medium length finish.
Comment: A proper crowd pleaser. What it lacks in complexity it makes up for it with its affability. Very easy to drink.
