Aberlour A'Bunadh

Whisky
Single Malt Whisky
Speyside,
Scotland
700ml
60.2% Alcohol content

Distillery

Though A’bunadh has no age statement, it is released in limited run batches, each batch carrying a unique number on its label. Each batch of this whisky is blended from barrels ranging from 5 to 25 years old. A'bunadh is exclusively aged in Spanish oak Oloroso sherry butts and therefore has a sweeter, softer flavor than most scotch. No chill filtration.

 

House style: soft textures with medium to full flavors. Nutty, spicy (nutmeg) & Sherry accented.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Jim Murray

Nose: Heavier and oakier than the age suggests but with a big, waxy, sherry note offering a cleaner, richer dimension.

 

Palate: Quite massive with a big sherry surge that breaks against a big malt middle and delicious spices.

 

Finish: Long, magnificently oaky and proud. Some cocoa and sherry fight for the finish but intertwine.

 

Comment: Wow!! Who would have thought a mere Speysider could offer such personality and depth?
