    It has a rich, ruddy, Bourbon-like color. The nose is extremely pleasant: strawberry, dried fruit and caramelized citrus. There is no trace of peat. Without water, it hits the tongue like a mallet of… read more

    BOOM! For me, this is a whisky that makes you smile and say 'ah, this is how whisky should be'. Not subtle, but full of flavour and warmth, and lovely to drink with only a reasonably little splash of … read more

    When I first opened it there was a over-ripen grapes flavor that was a bit overwhelming. It also contained strong bourbon notes. Over time ( at about 2/3 of the bottle), it settled and a velvety vanilla,… read more

    Aberlour has set the bar pretty high over the last few years and the A'bunadh is a great example of what this distillery can do. This particular batch is one of the best I've come across. On the nose I… read more

    Aberlour A'bunadh batch 46 (cask strength (60.4% ABV)). Oh dear, this is not good. Nose: Kind of confused sherrybourbonvanilla influence. Nothing like Batch 45. Some menthol maybe? Palate: Similar to… read more

    Rarely do I write reviews, but after watching markjedi's whiskey ramblings, I just felt inspired to contribute. Aberlour A'bunadh batch 45 (cask strength (60.2% ABV)) is truly a stunning dram, especially… read more

    Nose: Very much sherry driven with honey & grape intermingling. Vanilla oak, you get a rancio note in here as well. The barely can be distinguished from it all surprisingly. Lastly, there is some tang… read more

    My first taste of a cask-strength Scotch - and what a taste it is! After having tasted various Glenfarclas', Macallans and GlenDronachs I decided I wanted the full (sherry)monty, so to speak ... and it… read more

    Well bodied and thick Sherried Malt. Cask strength. Lovely thick malty tastes of grapes, Dates, and figs with a faint wisp of baked apples and cinnamon. Deliciously complex and a terrific after dinner … read more

    This 10 year entry level from Aberlour is decent but not complex. It's very pleasant though good for a newbie but also when you not in the mood for anything too full on... Nose raisin apples hit of v… read more
