Aberfeldy 12 Highland Scotch Whisky

Today I am reviewing an interesting whisky Aberfeldy 12 Highland Scotch. I say interesting because it's flavor profile is quite unique with a burning sensation. Upon some research I found that the distillery sources it's water from "The Pitilie Burn". It is said the water is pure and fresh and "The Burn" is known to contain deposits of alluvial gold. Wow I feel very rich drinking this lol. Owned by Bacardi it is mellwed for twelve years in Handmade Oak casks.
