I've been drinking A'bunadh for about three years fro about batch 32. This batch 45 is I think the most balanced, complex and interesting I've tasted.
I've added two teaspoons of water and left for 20 mins. The nose is full of almonds, raspberries, melon, marzipan, barley sugar and sherry. Gone are the rubbery sulphur blasts that were in earlier bottles, just a sweet fruit almond sherry.
The arrival is softer and silkier than earlier bottles, with a light oily coating of marzipan again, more almonds, nutmeg, oranges, oak, a light liquorice and dark chocolate raisin spice finish. Reminds me of a fine aged Cognac.
This is an excellent whisky at great price punching well above it's weight.
