Aberlour A'bunadh Single Malt Whisky 750ml

Aberlour A'bunadh Single Malt Whisky 750ml

$109.99

SKU: 5510

  • WHY: Perhaps the original high-proof, "Sherry bomb" single malt whisky, the Aberlour A'Bunadh is a big, powerful, full-throttle explosion of rich, raisined, toffee-laden Sherry flavor with loads of spice from the high ABV%. For drinkers who like big flavor!
  • HOW: Using whiskies of different ages exclusively from first-fill Oloroso Sherry butts, the A'Bunadh varies from batch to batch in its age and its proof, but the flavor profile is consistent: big Sherry, high proof.
  • WHAT: Aberlour distillery was built in 1879 and today continues to be one of the most quaint and picturesque single malt facilities in Scotland, nestled next to the Burn of Aberlour river in the Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands. Like Macallan, it's renowned for its Sherry-matured malts of distinctive richness and weight.

I was introduced to this single-malt while in Scotland. The owner of the AirBnb we stayed at poured us a dram and my wife and I knew from the first taste that this wasn't any ordinary scotch. This is one of the most complex Scotch's I've ever tasted. It is of the Speyside region, and with that, there is a certain taste which will be delivered, but beyond that, it's just an amazing pour.

A quick first note is that this is bottled at true cask-strength which is 60%. That's about 50% more than most single-malts. Some people enjoy that, but for the rest (most) of us, this is a glass that requires some additional water or ice. If you don't know much about adding water, a small amount enhances the taste. I truly believe that this deserves a tad or more.

This history of the A'bunadh is a fascinating story in itself. The distillery while removing old stills to make room for the new discovered a bottle below the flooring which was wrapped in newspaper from the turn of the 20th century. After careful analysis, the bottle was reproduced as closely as possible and that is the origin of this single-malt.

I'm not going to review the nosing, palate, or finish in this review. You can view those on Aberlour's website or other reviews, but I will say if I were allowed two bottles of single-malt scotch on a deserted island, this would be one of those two.

This is my first choice when going for scotch. If I have the drive, I'll easily spend the $70 for it as I find this to be the best bang for the buck whiskey out there. The flavor is outstanding and very complex. The fact that this is usually 60% ABV gives it a bit of a punch, so be careful. A couple ice cubes soften it a bit but the flavor is maintained. I personally like a whiskey that fights back a little and this one is perfect. When I see this bottle on the shelf, it is very difficult to pass up. Always a great scotch to start the night with, but I can only deal with one glass due to the alcohol content. Enjoy.
