The Highland based Aberfeldy Distillery, has announced the launch of a new limited-edition expression, to mark its 125th anniversary year.
Aberfeldy 25 Year Old (46% ABV) is a single malt Scotch whisky, which was initially matured in a combination of re-fill hogsheads and refill butts, before being finished for over a year in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks.

This latest release is said to deliver notes of Highland honey, wild strawberries and ripe peaches on the nose. Followed by notes of delicate fruit, cereal and vanilla coffee on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Stephanie Macleod, Aberfeldy Malt Master, said: "The walls of our charming distillery are steeped in history and heritage, standing testament to a tradition of whisky making stretching back over generations. Together with the distillery team led by Distillery Manager, John MacKenzie, and the team of talented Blenders, we have the honour of balancing past, present and future in every bottle of Aberfeldy to create the consistent premium quality and taste people enjoy around the world. Aberfeldy is truly at the heart of Scotland and, as soon as you arrive, it's easy to see why John Alexander Dewar chose this area to build his first and only distillery."
Aberfeldy 25 Year Old, which is available as part of a limited-edition collectors pack, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of $549.99.
