About our single cask Aberfeldy ‘self-fill’
Our visitors have the opportunity to purchase a bottle of a unique single cask Aberfeldy, exclusive to the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery. Fill and label your own limited edition bottle of Aberfeldy from one of our ‘self-fills’, each bottle individually numbered. Every cask we open is different, so we never know how many bottles we are going to get, generally dependent on the cask size and type, as well as the age of the whisky, we can expect anywhere from 150 to 600 bottles. And when the last bottle is gone, its unique taste passes into history.
Cask No. 201445 is an ex-american oak cask, which gives a lighter colour and character compared to sherry or port casks. Bottled at 55.1% abv, cask 201445 was laid down in 2001, and was released from the warehouse in November 2016, with the last bottle being filled on site on 25th April 2017. A total of 173 bottles were filled from this cask.
Whisky tasting notes
As two casks of Scotch whisky are never quite the same, we never know exactly what aromas and flavours to expect. The tasting notes for our distillery casks are created by our distillery team. Here are the tasting notes for this delicious single cask whisky:
Woody Spice, Fruity, Sweet
Fresh vanilla pods, cracked white peppercorns and lightly toasted oak.
A plethora of citrus fruits, baked apples and peaches, with a drizzle of lemon oil and mixed spice.
Sweet Chantilly cream, pear drops and chocolate orange, with just a dusting of demerara sugar.
