Aberlour A'bunadh batches

I was digging around my local liquor store today and found that they have 4 different batches of A'bunadh (44, 46, 47, and 49).

I bought the 44 because it was the last one there and I figured I'd never see it again since 50 is out now. Does anyone have any experience with these? Are they all pretty similar or should I run back and get one of the others?

From what I've read, they can vary quite widely.  We skipped right from batch 46-50 locally so we never saw 47.  From what I read 47 is preferred to 46 but I can't offer anything on the 44/49 or 50.

has a real avid following - personally I would probably do one more (be interesting to do a side by side comparison) and then diversify into other regions and age statements

Been doing some more research and it seems like folks like the 49. They're all over $90 so I better start watching my pennies.

I thinks I had the 36th when I started about 10 years ago. Good stuff indeed. Thta ebing said I do not think they are that different from batches to batches but it has been more than a while since I tried two batch side by side.

Drinking alcohol wont solve my problems, but neither will milk !

Has anyone seen any A'bunadh batch #49 lately? I'm in Alberta, but it doesn't matter where in Alberta it may be. I can get it if it's out there?

I got the 49 and it's lovely! They're at batch 55 now and I belive 54 is avaible in SAQ.

We had 49 come back in stock just recently apparently.  At the same time batch 57 showed up.

I found a 37 last week for the same price as the current version. I'm ecstatic! Man was it dusty.

SAQ is up to batch 57. If you're lucky you'll find a 56...

Manitoba is same, batch 57.  We never had 56, I think the last we had was 49 which is really weird because I think we missed it entirely previously (went from 46->50), so we have 49/57 locally for now.  I suspect that we'll see another price increase when the 49s are gone, just as we did when we went from 47 ($79) to 50 ($99).  Might try and find a 49 but so many other things I want to buy as well.
