If you like fruit cake, chocolate pot, creme brulee, marshmallow, banana mousses, pecan pie, apple strudel, Christmas cake, marzipan, toffee fudge sprinkled with icing sugar. YOU WILL like this gem of a scotch.

The flavors are so intense and layered, making this whiskey a fun experiment where you can add little bit of water each time to see just how the complexity of its flavors unfold. It also has a lovely rum tone to its noise, amazing

I have recently been venturing outside my peat scotch comfort zone, just tried acquired the Glenfarclas 15y, Glendronach 15y revival and the A'bunadh. A'bunadh came out top by a conuntry mile. Dont get me wrong, the other two are just gorgeous, but i loved the FULL BODY A'bunadh just that much more

I just picked up a bottle of the A'bunadh a few days ago (haven't tried it yet)...It's batch #39...There were a few other batches available for purchase; #35, #37, and #40.

It was a spur of the moment purchase; I had intentions of purchasing a bottle of the Highland Park 15 yr, but just recently I fell in love with the Aberlour 16 yr, and when I saw the Aberlour A'bunadh, and the newly released Aberlour 12 yr Un-Chill Filtered - I went with those 2 whisky's instead of the Highland Park 15.

Decisions - decisions.....
