    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The high alcohol content (60.9%) causes a slight stinging in the nose, which is not completely gone even after more than 20 minutes. Beautiful sherries dominate the action: plums, cherries, black currants, juicy oranges, almonds, marzipan, plenty of caramel, chocolate and delicate echoes of oak I perceive. Adding a few drops of water evaporates the slightly alcoholic note and the fruity aromas intensify noticeably. The nose now looks much rounder and more harmonious.
    • Taste
      Without water: Violent onset, the texture is pleasantly oily. The front part of the mouth is lapped by sweet sherry notes while it tingles violently on the tip of the tongue. With a few drops of water, the malt remains very intense, but is more pleasing and harmonious. The fruit notes are fresher and even sweeter, I register plenty of red fruits, oranges, chocolate, caramel, almonds, delicate hints of leather and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Medium long, intense and sweet and spicy. Fruity sherry notes, sweet forest berries, caramel and spicy oak notes accompany the finish. A bit of dark chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, nuts and orange peel complete the balanced finish. The Aberlour leaves a subtle, but not disturbing, bitterness on the palate.

    My definition of a more basic A’bunadh batch. I found it very juiced up in Sherry and not offering a whole lot of complexity. Still tasty, but Batch 58 was much better.

    A really lovely cask strength sherry whisky~ It's very hard to choose between this and the Glenfarclas 105. As both heavily depends on the cask influence, sometimes i prefer Abu sometimes 105.

    Hey not to complain but its always great to have multiple selections!
    • Nose
      Dry, oak perfume, sherry bomb! Saw dust, toffee, sugar syrup, vanilla. After rest it for some time, the dark fruits and chocolate slowly coming out.
    • Taste
      Very rich, strong, oily, sweet vanilla, dark fruits burst. Is this a bourbon? In the middle, here comes the marmalade, cinnamon stick, dark chocolate, orange peel. 
    • Finish
      Long with dark chocolate, mints, cloves, sweet dried raisins~ and at the very end when the bitterness slowly dissipate the oak perfume is back~~~
