Aberlour - A'Bunadh Cask Strength Single Malt 750ml
Amber, with shades of ruby. Notes of complex honey-drenched fruit (sultana, marmalade, peaches, apples), toffee, treacle, and hint of mint. Full, rich texture and lush body. Long, warming, moderately spicy finish. (Vol. 17, #2)
Brave the cask-strength heat and be rewarded by a malt that's welcoming and complex. Sherry and cherry dominate at first, but a cereal-granola-honey quality and a licorice note flirt from behind the curtain. The essential candy element returns on the finish.
Pronounced "a-boon-arh," which means "the origin" in Gaelic. Made the way whisky was produced in the 1800s, A'bunadh from Aberlour is not chilled-filtered and is bottled at a cask strength 59.5%. Slowly matured in rare Oloroso sherry butts, this malt is filled with rich, smooth, complex flavors.
