DEWAR'S ABERFELDY DISTILLERY,
EXCEPTIONAL CASK SERIES 18-YEAR 'DOUBLE CASK' NO. 3065 SINGLE MALT SCOTCH

 

HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND

 

 

After your enthusiastic response to our first offer of Aberfeldy’s Exceptional Cask Series releases, we knew we had to get our hands on something just as special. Today, we are thrilled to present first access to Aberfeldy’s 18 Year ‘Double Cask’ No. 3065 limited edition release. Only 300 bottles were produced of this stunning single-cask Highland single malt, hand selected by Master Distiller Stephanie Macleod; the whisky aged for more than 16 years in ex-Bourbon barrel before being transferred into ex-Sherry butt for nearly two years. Bottled in December 2020 at 53.5% ABV, this is a true collector’s Scotch, as unique, complex, and delicious as they come. We know our customers are always looking for special and limited single malts, and today’s offer hits the nail on the head. 

 

In 2019, Dewar’s master blender Stephanie Macleod made history when she became the first woman to be awarded the ‘Master Blender of the Year’ title in the International Whisky Competition (IWC). In 2020, she was awarded the title for a second time, securing her legacy among Scotland’s elite master blenders and distillers. In late 2019, three casks—part of Aberfeldy’s ‘Exceptional Cask Series’—were released in the U.S. and were quickly snatched up by in-the-know whisky collectors.

 

The Aberfeldy Distillery, located in the foothills of the Central Highlands of Scotland, is built on land famous for its deposits of gold. Today, the distillery still draws water from the Pitilie Burn, renowned for its quality and promise of gold. This, coupled with the rich honey character prominent in Aberfeldy whisky, has led to a reputation as “the golden dram.” The 18-Year Double Cask begins its long aging regimen in ex-Bourbon barrels, adding characteristic notes of honeysuckle, vanilla, and honey. After more than 16 years maturation, the whisky was finished for nearly two years in ex-Oloroso sherry cask. The influence of the finishing casks is apparent in the whisky’s notes of star anise and dried fruits, which ultimately invigorate the soft honey and creamy vanilla notes from the ex-Bourbon barrel aging. Act today to secure your bottles with special Concierge-only pricing before this is gone for good!
