The Golden Dram, as Aberfeldy is known, is an appropriate name derived in equal parts from the marked golden honey notes of the whisky itself and the fact that gold is still panned for in the Pitilie Burn - the distillery's water source. The distillery is a critical componenet of the Dewar's blend and has been since the Dewar's built it in the 1890s. Today under Bacardi ownership (Diageo was forced to sell Dewars and it's attendant distilleries in 1998 by the UK Monopolies Board) the single malts from Aberfeldy are finally getting the attention and focus they deserve. The core whiskey lineup has been revamped and the extremely sought after 18 year release has expanded from being exclusively released for travel retail to being more widely available. Still quite limited in availability, this release is finished in red wine casks - specifically for batch #2921 - the powerful Syrah wines from Côte-Rôtie. The result is a perfect mesh of Aberfeldy's natural honey sweetness and the intense red fruits and structure of Côte-Rôtie.
