Aberfeldy 18 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky Limited Edition
43% ABV, 750 ml, finished in Tuscan Red Wine Casks from Bolgheri, Italy
"This starts off with earthy, oaky aromas. The palate opens dry in tones of cedar and a hint of tingly spice. Adding water brings mouthwatering vanilla forward, along with coconut and a nutty tone reminiscent of pecan pie. The finish is long and drying, with plenty of baking spice and ginger tingles. Finished in Côte-Rôtie red wine casks." 97 Points Wine Enthusiast
