Whisky Reviews for Aberlour A'bunadh batch #66

- In the nose the well-known, wonderfully sweet-fruity Aberlour creaminess. Delicious chocolate and sweet raisins in the mouth. Good batch!
- Better than the last batch (which I found to be the weakest one I’ve had yet), but still a far cry from the gems that the batches in the upper 40s were (which were so sherried that I find them more akin to Glendronach 18 than I do to current batches). This one brings back the spiciness and doesn’t have the off notes I saw in batch 65. But, I am finding with these more recent bottles that my palette is just getting a little tired of the heavy handedness of the sherry. You get the bombardment of Christmas cake and raisins, but there is little in the way of deftness or complexity in this experience. I suspect in recent years the amount of aged sherry in the mix has been reduced. If you go for this sort of thing - a masochistic, in your face, one trick pony, youthful sherry bomb - then this is for you. If however you are looking for complexity and balance, you’re likely looking at the wrong option with this one. Props to Aberlour though for this snazzy new livery and the mention on the back of the tube that they are using local barley.
- WOW. What a great single malt. This whisky convinces in every discipline. The nose is just fun. At the same time, it is extremely easy to drink. Extremely soft and mild, yet a poem of aromas.
Everyone should have tried this whisky!
wow, spicy, citrus, herbs, very tasty, slightly sweet, sherry, reminds me of the "Roundhouse Imperial Gin"
Oak, herbs, very soft, tasty. Perfectly coordinated
long and pleasant finish,
- Ranks in the typically modern sherry profiles. Fruity and sweet with clearly present (young) wood. A little unbalanced with the noticeably young wood note. Overall very tasty, but also relatively straightforward and unexciting. Measured against the price but a good bottling these days.
