Tasting notes in limited edition 15 years
Unpack the 15 Year Limited Edition and you’ll experience the same jam-packed aromas that characterize the big, bold cabs of Northern California. After this fruity fragrance, there’s a fun yet spicy complexity that spreads down the middle of the palate in waves of cinnamon and dark roast. When those ingredients wear off, you’re left to contemplate the delicious, herbal edge that emerges after a sip.
18 year limited edition tasting notes
As tempting as this all sounds, the Limited Edition 18 is getting bigger and bolder. Single malt spends time in a former Tuscan red wine barrick. It is sourced from an area that is much more classic for Chianti. But it is also the birthplace of the first “Tuscan” wines, which are becoming increasingly popular in modern times.
Of the development of the Cask Collection Series, Macleod explains, “After extensively exploring French wine barrels using the expressions Pomerol, Paulliac, and Cote Rotie, we thought why we shouldn’t cross the continent to Italy.” “Once the kegs came in and we had a chance to get rid of them, I knew these kegs would be perfect for Aberfeldy!”
It’s a good thing, because getting them back was probably a logistical nightmare. Needless to say, as Macleod eloquently asserts, the house’s signature soft aromatic notes are “covered with chunks of dark red berries and soft notes of almond.”
It might be the power of suggestion – or the power of magic – but we tend to agree with the description.
The 18th year is the year you want to break down sooner rather than later. It joins the brand’s core portfolio, which includes single malts aged 12, 16 and 21, for a very limited time this fall.
