Aberlour A'bunadh

Something Wicked This Way Comes Aberlour A'bunadh

A'Bunadh needs no introduction. I've reviewed Batch 53 and Batch 58, and I'm sure I'll review more batches. I've liked pretty much every Aberlour offering I've ever tasted so, spoiler alert, it's unli…

Aberlour A'Bunadh Batch 58

A great batch Aberlour A'Bunadh Batch 58

Promotional materials and the internet rumour mill state that every batch of A'Bunadh contains whiskies from 5 to 25 years old. Is most of the whisky closer to 5 or 25 years old, you ask? Nobody knows…
