Tasting Notes by tjb

Aberfeldy is the largest malt whisky component of Dewar's Blended Whisky. This expression is the entry level in the range and is bottled at 40%

Bright gold in the glass with a nose that is creamy, cereal notes, sherried fruits, whiff of smoke.

The palate is a bit thin but smooth, light smoke, barley and sweet honey.

The finish is medium and sweet. Fading malt but still mouth watering.

A solid malt reasonably priced.

I very much enjoy the Aberfeldy, its one of the better "affordable" single malts that we have available year round here in Ontario. It's easy to drink, has enough flavour to keep you interested, and is drinkable any time of year. I agree with most of your review, but might have rated it a few points higher.

This is a nice dram, it is not complex but nicely put together. The nose is slightly soapy, I didn't note it down before. The finish lightly spiced. Ahhhh, should I buy another bottle? Decisions, decisions.
