With each batch specially crafted, 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.
Aberlour A'Bunadh is of Batch 54 matured exclusively in Spanish Oloroso butts and bottled at natural cask strength without chill filtration at 60.7% ABV.
Full bodied sherry, raisins, hint of orange and almonds
Raisins, oak, orange and spice notes
Long raisin and oak finish
A'Bunadh apparently means "the source" in Gaelic and this whisky could well be considered among the best of the source of all good Scottish whiskey. Bold and bracing, with a huge 61% cask strength alcohol, it is a surprisingly drinkable whisky. Great flavor! Add a very small amount of water and it opens up nicely. I am a definite fan of Aberlour A'Bunadh.
