Aberfeldy, well known for its beautiful area in Highland Perthshire and whisky. The name Aberfeldy comes from the Gaelic and means “from the mouth of the Poldi Burns”, the river Tay flows along the Dewar’s Aberfeldy distillery.
On the evening of Wednesday, November 22, a couple of whisky friends and I gathered online to enjoy and share our thoughts about the core edition from the Dewar’s Aberfeldy distillery and two delectable single casks whiskies, hand selected by Dewar’s Master Blender, Stephanie MacLeod.
The morning of Friday 17 November, dawned cloudily, but also chilly, as we made our way into Edinburgh and the Abbey Whisky Bar. On arrival at 8:30 am, we all had a nice bacon roll and coffee served by the owner Steve.
The mini-bus arrived and fifteen of us took a seat for the trip North to Aberfeldy. The first problem being to get out of the city! Not a small achievement with the seemingly everlasting roadworks everywhere. Eventually, we crossed the new “Saltire Bridge” and drove over into Fife. As the miles rolled by the scenery changed from rolling hills to a high hill with deep glens with lots of forests as we made our way into Perthshire.
The time passed quickly and soon we arrived at Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery.
