The Aberdeen Old Fashioned features Sandeman Porto Founders Reserve [$20] which has an intense ruby red colour and a brilliant and clean finish. Rich red fruit aromas with a touch of age create an elegant reflection of powerful flavours, the fruit and fire characteristic of young classic Porto balanced with the finesse of age.
