So this is my first review, been lurking for a long time but really felt that this a community I can mingle with. This is obviously my opinion and can be different for all people.
I hear about the Aberlour A'bunadh from this website, and upon finding it being stocked in a store in HK, I immediately purchased it. Batch 45 and 47 were available, but after much consideration and overall comments, I chose batch 47.
Nose: Wow, strawberry fields, some grapes and berries, cherries for sure, a hint of cream and custard. No peat or smoke, but this already smells promising and delightful. Could pass for a high end Cognac if I were blinded. (Warning: don't put this too close as it could sting your eyes.)
Finish: As I mentioned, so smooth you would never guess the ABV. Finish is not too complicated so may disappoint some, but it is pleasant a calming. If I had to describe it, it would be a roasted marshmallow around a campfire on a windy day. Sweet and warm, sherry, great everyday dram.
