Aberlour A'Bunadh Alba "Batch #001 57.1% ABV" Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1444208 93 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark The yin to Aberlour A’bunadh’s yang, this cask-strength single malt is matured entirely in bourbon casks rather than sherry. The result is a bracingly pure whisky with deceptive simplicity; its flavors are clean and its structure precise, but it’s far from boring. The nose recalls black-and-white cookies, vanilla-frosted yellow cake, and shortbread with caramel topping, along with honeysuckle, jasmine, and coconut cream. Mouth-coating and full, it has flavors of poached pear, malt balls, nougat, lemon curd, toasted coconut, and hints of spice. Vanilla, chocolate, and nut flavors are almost endless on the finish. Add water, or don’t: this is delicious either way. *Number 5 in the 2019 Top 20* (SSB, Winter 2019) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

The newest addition to the A'Bunadh family - The Alba is here. Alba is a double entendre referring to both Quercus Alba - the scientific name for American oak, and a term for Scotland itself, roughly translated as "The Scottish Original." As the name implies, this expression of A'Bunadh is aged in American oak giving a distinctly different feel from its heavily sherried brethren. While the spirit itself is responsible for many of the sweet and fruity notes familiar in the sherried expressions, the body and color of this dram is wildly different and more vanilla and cereal notes are highlighted by the American oak.
