Aberfeldy Limited Edition Cote Rotie Cask Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 year old 18 year old
The ABERFELDY Limited Edition Series is a passion project of Malt Master Stephanie Macleod, with a focus on unique cask finishes that complement and elevate the signature character of ABERFELDY. Stephanie uses her exceptional skills in sensory analyses to observe the maturation and flavor development in each cask until achieving the desired flavors, at which time the whisky is deemed ready to be bottled.
This rare 18-Year-Old Whisky is finished in French Côte Rôtie casks to create the perfect balance of flavor between the rich character of ABERFELDY and power and elegance of Côte Rôtie. Côte Rôtie casks bestow expressive and seductive qualities, silky textures and fruits with luscious, red berry characteristics.
This starts off with earthy, oaky aromas. The palate opens dry in tones of cedar and a hint of tingly spice. Adding water brings mouthwatering vanilla forward, along with coconut and a nutty tone reminiscent of pecan pie. The finish is long and drying, with plenty of baking spice and ginger tingles. Finished in Côte-Rôtie red wine casks.
