"Best Distillers’ Single Malt Scotch – No Age Statement" And "Double Gold" 2020 San Francisco Spirits Competition
94 Points, Excellent, Highly Recommended, 2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge "A sumptuous powerhouse of a whisky, it opens with seductive oloroso sherry notes before revealing notes of pepper, dark fruit, and ginger snaps with hints of wood soap on the finish. Manages to be decadent and lively at once."
With each batch carefully made by hand, Aberlour A’bunadh is a unique cask strength whisky that has achieved cult status among whisky connoisseurs.
Meaning ‘the original’ in Gaelic, A’bunadh is made in homage to Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming, using only traditional methods without chill filtration or other modern processes.
The result is a heavier, creamier single malt than most have ever experienced – memorably flavoursome, with an intense raisin character.
Colour: Deep rich amber.
Nose: Terrific aromas of allspice, praline and spiced orange, in harmony with deep notes of Oloroso Sherry.
Palate: Orange, black cherries, dried fruit and ginger, spiked with dark bitter chocolate and enriched with lingering Sherry and oak. Superlatively full bodied and creamy.
Finish: Robust and long lasting, with bittersweet notes of exotic spices, dark chocolate and oak.
