    This is a difficult whisky!. It needs water. But even with water and time in glass it does not open up much.

    Typical sherry notes on the nose. Dry fruits, brown sugar. Very strong
    The taste has everything the nose promised along with a slight citrus edge. Sweet and sour with a slight acidic touch. Spicy on the finish.

    Not much going on in there. I had high hopes for this bottle but so far it has failed to deliver. After having tasted it on multiple occasions I still feel underwhelmed by it.

    Will give it some time in the bottle before I taste it again.
    Edit**
    Adding 2 more points to my original score. It opened up better after some time in the bottle

    I don't know, pure almost too strong, water breaks it a little, the finish is still the best. I probably won't become a fan of the a'bunadh anymore, although he's not bad either.
    • Nose
      Sweet, fruity, light solvent notes, somewhat sour fruitiness, would almost think of esters, not unlike a little Jamaican rum. Over time, it calms down a bit and there are more full, nutty sherry flavors, lots of raisins, and a little oak. First of all, water wipes out your nose, there is not so much left, unfortunately.
    • Taste
      Pure, it is actually edible, very sweet, sherry, slightly acidic fruitiness, a little pepper and a hint of oak, without becoming bitter. There is a bit more bitterness with water, in total, but it gets a little softer, but without any aromatic gain.
    • Finish
      warm, sweet, spicy, sherry and fruity notes, more oak and tobacco over time.
