ABV: 40%
A new version of Aberfeldy's 16 year old has been released as part of their duty free exclusive series. This time the famously fruity Speysider has been finished for a year in a combination of Malmsey and Bual Madeira wine casks. Expect soft notes of honey freshened with citrus and delicate tones of baked apples, cinnamon and creamy vanilla. Big one litre format.

Other reviews... The nose is complex and rich with touches of citrus fruits, honey, and muted spices. The spices come alive on the palate with intense notes of cinnamon and allspice complemented nicely by apple cobbler, vanilla, and honey. The finish is long and well-balanced as the cinnamon spiciness fades away gently while lingering apple and honey notes tickle the back of the throat. Excellent!
