This release is part of Aberfeldy and Craigellachie's Exceptional Cask Series. This series consists of exceedingly rare single cask and double cask bottlings, each of which are hand-selected by Malt Master Stephanie Macleod and released in limited quantities. This double cask bottling was finished in sherry casks and bottled at 52%.
This double-cask bottling from Aberfeldy’s Exceptional Cask Series has a nose full of dark fruits, toffee, figs, Christmas cake, and muted spices. The taste is intense and spicy with clove, cinnamon, and black pepper notes that fade to reveal hints of Christmas cake, toffee, and a slight oakiness. Adding water tamps down the spices while bringing out fruitier notes. The finish is long with a good balance of spices and toffee sweetness.
"This is a wonderfully rich and complex dram from Aberfeldy. The strikingly dark color in the glass hints at the flavors to come: port wine, dates, leather, vanilla, and a touch of smoke on the finish. Drink it neat to end a night, or perhaps enjoy it with a nice cigar." - Jacob Grier, Distiller
