This is the Aberlour A'bunadh, batch number 34 of a really good range.With each batch carefully made by hand, Aberlour ABunadh is a unique cask strength whisky that has achieved cult status among whisky connoisseurs.Meaning the original in Gaelic, Abunadh is made in homage to Aberlours founder, James Fleming, using only traditional methods without chill filtration or other modern processes.The result is a heavier, creamier single malt than most have ever experienced memorably flavoursome, with an intense raisin character.
Nose: Orange, white oak, also dark fruit and cinnamon. It may be restrained, but it's pleasant!
Palate: This is rather decent. It's a liqueury whisky. Think of Grand Marnier with dark fruit, Dutch appelstroop, pepper and cinnamon and really juicy grapes. Oh, and a hint of coffee and tobacco.
Finish: Gets spicier! Harsh peppers and gingers! Long and a malty end! One of the better batches!
