A'bunadh is definitely my go to scotch! It's amazing how small differences from batch to batch can make a subtle but huge difference. So far I've tried batches 37,38,and 44. 38 is the least favorite, and 37 comes in second. Poured a deep dark amber into a Glencairn glass. Scent of Dried sweet fruits, toffee goodness, maple syrup will greet your nose. Could smell this all day! On the palate you get huge sherry notes, maple syrup, toffee, caramel, hint of chocolate. Finish is long and chewy. How can u not like this whisky? Took it to a party and it actually made the party. Everyone loved it, from novice to aficionados.

I had to pick up an extra 44 after I tried it. Definitely one for the archives! I do put away full sealed sample bottles of each batch ( except I started after the 33 - good thing I have another bottle of it) and one day I'll do a tasting. I think officially that would be called a vertical tasting because it's all from one distillery, but if I have too many it may turn into a horizontal tasting, as in me being horizontal...
