Scotch - Single Malt
Aberfeldy 12yr Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky
This is a Tier 1 score in the Whiskey category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
The Aberfeldy 12yr provides the "signature notes" of the Dewars scotch blends and is the flagship scotch of the Aberfeldy distillery... or, as they would have it, the "golden dram."
Abefeldy Distillery was built by the Dewar family--a famous name in scotch--in 1898. It was shut down during World War I, re-opened, and then closed again during World War II. It was re-opened again in 1972 and recently began producing single-malt whiskies in support of the Dewars company. Aberfeldy is currently owned by Dewars, who is in turn owned by Bacardi.
