.aberlour a’bunadh – batch #35

60,3% abv, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural color

Nose: round, nutty, woody, sherry
Palate: sweet, sharp alcohol, when adding water, chocolate
Finish: a long, spicy and sharp alcohol finish with a lingering bitter chocolate afterthought
Mark: ++++/+
Conclusion: Great stuff, would absolutely recommend, if you can still find a bottle of this batch. The more recent batches tend not to be as good as the earlier batches of this series, but are still great value for money. Can have a good splash of water.

More info: A’Bunadh means ‘from the original’ in Scottish Gaelic.
This whisky has matured exclusively in ex-Oloroso Sherry butts.
