Tasted both Glenfarclas 105 and Aberlour A'bunadh recently. I favor the 105. My rating below is for the 105. I think someone who really likes bourbon would favor the A'bunadh. That's not me. I like scotch far more than bourbon. I also tasted the Glendronach 15 Revival for the first time. It's not as good as I thought it would be.
Frankly, I found all three of the aforementioned scotches lacked sophistication. I would gladly take a glass of Springbank 12 Claret wood over all three.
That's not to say I don't like the "triumvirate of sweet" that I mentioned upon opening this review. I do like them all, I just wasn't blown away by any of them. As for the Claret wood, well, frankly I was blown away by that one. A cut above, to be sure, and well priced when it was available for purchase.
I'm too overheated from the hot weather and tired to write up tasting notes today. I hope you all are having a nice summer. Time for a nap.
