Whisky Advocate Top 20 Whiskies of 2020 - #10

This bottling was launched in 2020 and was the second in Aberfeldy’s Red Wine Cask Collection. The whisky was finished in Pauillac casks for around 4 – 5 months. Batch 2920.

Aberfeldy’s signature notes are invigorated with swathes of plush ripe, black cherries, blackberries and cedarwood spice, with lovely nutty aromas.

43% ABV

Rated 93pts by Whisky Advocate: "Aging scotch in a secondary cask is tricky, and tinkering with a whisky that has already achieved 18 years of age is even riskier. This well-matured Aberfeldy spent its final months in red wine casks from Bordeaux under the bold vision and deft hand of malt master Stephanie Macleod. As a result, it soars above its station. Never intrusive, the red wine finish suggests Fig Newtons and dried cherries, building upon Aberfeldy’s classic honey-vanilla profile to evoke strawberry shortcake and flavors of jam and clotted cream on a fresh-baked scone. A complex, mature, and moreish whisky at an excellent price."
