Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch 45

1 Posted by - 02/23/2014 - B Rated, Highland, Scotch, Single Malt
I have wanted to try this beautiful lass since I heard about it. I still have a far amount of Aberlour 16 from my personal collection, but this one would be much different. It’s been said that if you can “brave the cask-strength heat you will be rewarded by a malt that’s welcoming and complex”. Well, not many of us were nearly as brave as we once thought ;)

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. — www.aberlour.com
