Description

A Marriage of Maturation

The whisky begins its journey in traditional oak casks, where it matures for at least 16 years. This initial aging lays the foundation, developing the spirit’s character with the classic Aberfeldy honeyed malt profile. Then comes a twist. For the final eight years, the whisky is meticulously transferred to specially selected Oloroso sherry casks. These casks, once used to mature rich and flavorful sherry, impart their magic touch on the whisky.

Aromatic Tapestry

As you raise a glass, the Aberfeldy 24 reveals a light amber hue, hinting at the treasures within. On the nose, a delightful interplay of aromas unfolds. Sweet notes of salted caramel and butterscotch intertwine with hints of sherry, creating an inviting first impression. As you delve deeper, richer notes of dark chocolate, nuttiness, and a touch of spice emerge, promising a complex and captivating experience.

The Taste Revelation

The first sip delivers a burst of flavor that confirms the whisky’s depth. A wave of nuttiness washes over the palate, accompanied by a surprising hint of banana and tropical fruits. Underlying these brighter notes is the unmistakable Aberfeldy malt character, now imbued with a mellowed sweetness reminiscent of aged sherry. Hints of dark chocolate and spice add another layer of intrigue, creating a truly captivating interplay on the tongue.

A Lingering Farewell

The finish is where the Aberfeldy 24 truly shines. Long and lingering, it leaves a lasting impression on the palate. Notes of sherry and caramelized banana come to the forefront, underscored by a subtle astringency that adds a touch of elegance. As the final echoes fade, the memory of this exceptional whisky lingers, inviting you to savor its complexity and appreciate the craftsmanship that brought it to life.
