History Of Aberfeldy
The formation of Aberfeldy started during the late 19th century where there was a ‘whisky boom’. However, officiating this brand was part of a growth development plan of Dewars whisky and as a response to the high demand from the already successful scotch whisky. With the introduction of Aberfeldy whisky, Dewars promised a single malt whisky with top notch quality that will not disappoint. As the whisky produced was always in reserve for Dewars blend, Aberfeldy whisky gained its right to its own whisky brand in 1999 when it introduced its first official single malt whisky, the Aberfeldy 12 Years.
Aberfeldy 12 Years Old
Aberfeldy 12 years is a full-bodied, beautiful single malt that’s approachable and fruit-forward with well rounded notes of melon, pear, honey, spices and a slight hint of smoke to finish it off. In the mouth, this Aberfeldy single malt has a syrupy texture that’s smooth, gentle and easy-drinking, with a rich lingering finish. Perfect for budding whisky drinkers looking to discover the beauty of single malt whiskies.
Aberfeldy 21 Years Old
In 2005, Aberfeldy whisky launched it second bottle that is now widely recognized, the Aberfeldy 21 years. This whisky is is sheer brilliance and a testament of what the distillery is capable of. On the nose, the Aberfeldly 21 years has beautiful aromas of honey, dried fruit with a touch of toasted coconut, that is brought to life with a fresh and zesty character.

While perfect on its own, the best way to enjoy a glass of Aberfeldy Scotch Whisky is with a splash of water to awaken the aromas and if in a tropical climate such as Malaysia, an ice cube or two helps keep things cool without numbing out the flavors.
