Aberfeldy 18yo limited-edition whiskey

$130



Initially spending 18 years in a combination of refill casks, this whisky has undergone a finishing period of around 4-5 months in first-fill Pauillac wine casks, a rich and complex red wine from Bordeaux.
Malt Master Stephanie MacLeod carefully monitored maturation and flavour development in the casks until the desired flavour profile had been achieved.

ABERFELDY's wonderfully soft signature honey and creamy vanilla notes are invigorated with swathes of plush ripe fruits and lovely nutty aromas to create an incredibly elegant and fruitful whisky.

Riedel hand-blown “Mamba” decanter

Channels the vigor of the famous Black Mamba, the world’s fastest snake



The alluring Mamba decanter channels the vigor of the famous Black Mamba, the world’s fastest snake. Following on from the serpentine Eve decanter (2008), the Mamba’s poised upright stance and coiled design creates a series of air pockets which “double decants" the wine.

As the wine makes its journey through the curvaceous glass, the Mamba emits a gurgle: an aural reminder of the vigorous decanting as a result of its design. The Mamba decanter is recommended for young wines.

This decanter is designed for a single bottle of wine.
