Whisky Reviews for Aberlour A'bunadh batch #12

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.91 points

  1. aphex scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose was both restrained and alcoholic. The creamy mouth was interesting but once again alcohol was not well-integrated. Still an enjoyable dram.

    Tasting from january 2017
    • Nose
      Quite discreet. A bit alcoholic. Sherry flavors, some mint, vanilla.
    • Taste
      The creamy texture strikes first and the punchy attack comes second. Caramel, vanilla, fruits (oranges) and oak. Water tames the oak bitterness.
    • Finish
      Long, chocolate, oak, nuts.

  2. Ganga scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    This is from memory.  I haven't had this whisky in a number of years but I had this as part of a series, batches 6-18 and 21 all opened together.   These bottles were all purchased for prices between $50 and $55 US.  Therefore, the price receives high marks considering the overall quality.

    • Nose

    • Taste
      8,5 Delikatnie dymna z nutami wiśni oraz żółtego grejpfruta ze szczyptą cynamonu, wanilii oraz kakao z akcentem goryczki.
    • Finish
      8,4 Dobrej długości, pikantny, wiśniowy, wanilii i orzecha z akcentem mięty oraz imbiru.

  4. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The best Abunadh, that I have ever tried. What an excellent batch.

    (Rating interval 89-94)
    • Nose
      Tobacco, coffee, dark fudge, burnt sugar, dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      The delivery is warm and dry with honey, dark chocolate, salty chocolate with chili flakes, dried figs, instant coffee and christmas pudding.
    • Finish
      the finish is long, warm and spicy with hints of sweet licorice. 

  5. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Not much difference in my opinion with batch # 10 (cross comparison). Maybe slightly sweeter.
    • Nose
      Sherry and mint, Sweetness. Powerfull.
    • Taste
      Very rich and creamy. Vanilla, cherries, oak.
    • Finish
      Long, nougat. Vanilla again.

  6. mmaclean scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I Love the power of Aberlour! It has great taste of sherry and fruits.

    This also is a powerful scotch so I don`t recommend it to new whisky

    users. It is good to gain a palate that recognizes the difference

    between cask strength and some that are less ABV like 40% or 43%.

  7. Jeep51 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Just after pouring into the glass: vanilla, caramel and an (unpleasant) smell of plastic or rubber. At aeration: brandy, cocoa, red fruit and a kernel odor. No alcohol sensation despite 60 ° but not very exuberant either.
    • Taste
      Big, tangy sensation at the beginning of the mouth (you know how when you eat sweets with sugar on it). Then it's pretty hot on orange and cherry. With a little water, it looks a lot sweeter. No more heaviness.
    • Finish
      Long on chocolate with a little bitterness, woody notes. it ends on nuts (nuts).

  8. tomy63 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very good sherry monster, my favorite in the + or - 50â €
    • Nose
      Sherry monster! Need aeration so that the fruits stand out if it is too "alcoholic". Then brandy of cherry, orange, chocolate, spices.
    • Taste
      A few drops of water do him good. Red fruits, dried fruit, orange, praline, ginger, slightly woody.
    • Finish
      Very long and very hot on dark chocolate, oak and always orange, cherry.
