Aberfeldy 18 Year Old Single Malt finished in French Wine Casks from Pauillac, Bordeaux, unveils its latest limited expression.
Initially spending 18 years in a combination of refill casks, this whisky has undergone a finishing period of around 4-5 months in first-fill Pauillac wine casks, a rich and complex red wine from Bordeaux.
The nose opens with a slightly savory note, rich and spicy, with sherry, Jaffa oranges, and sweet oak.
The palate is smooth and rounded, with malt, nutty spice, honey, and milky coffee.
The finish is lengthy, with Seville oranges, plain chocolate, dark sherry notes, and licorice.
