Aberfeldy Distillery, in the eastern Highlands of Scotland, uses a fresh water spring that is high in minerals. The distillery produces a single malt which reveals extensive notes of grain and fruit. Stamping its mark, the Aberfeldy single malt is the most powerful of the Midland malts. The best of these leaves a pleasant softness on the palate. For a long time limited to two official malts, one 12 year old and one 21 year old, several single casks have been released since 2009, much to the delight of connoisseurs. Aberfeldy is also the base for the famous Dewar’s blend.
