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.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Deep and robust aromas of toasted wheat, baked cherries, orange marmalade, almond toffee, coriander and white flower. Hints of honeysuckle and ripe apricot as well. Incredibly smooth and rich in the mouth with baked cherries, marmalade and honey playing a large role as well as a touch of vanilla. The finish is honeyed and effortless. (Mar 2013)
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.
