Our handsome Distillery is sited on the river tay in the Central Highlands of Scotland,a stone's throw from the birthplace of our founder,and PIONEER of BLENDING JOHN DEWAR. With land acquired from the MARQUESS of BREADALBANE and architecture designed by Charles Doig,the distillery rose up to begin production in 1898.
IN JOHN'S BONNIE HOMETOWN of ABERFELDY,his family found men who knew the secrets of superb whisky.Today,we still use time-honoured techniques like long fermentation to conjure rare honeyed notes,and draw water from the PITILIE BURN,renowned for its quality and PROMISE of GOLD.
MELLOWED FOR 12 YEARS in handmade oak casks,this smooth ,sweet dram offers rich rewards for those who like to DIG DEEPER.We lose a fair bit to the angels through ,almost a third of every cask has disappeared into the either before we're ready to bottle.
Nose: Creamy,some sherried fruit with a trailing hint of smoke.Honeyed prunes,custard,and espresso beans.
Palate : Sweet,malty,with gentle peat and a mellow,silky texture,vanilla fudge,peaches and cream,and subtle toasted oak follow.
Finish: Ginger,malt,nutty nought and maybe a little grapefruit
