Whisky Reviews for Aberlour A'bunadh batch #35

- Not the best a'bunadh, especially the nose was appaling. The finish was nice and more in balance.
Some off notes to start with: sweat socks and baby vomit. Then, tons fudge, too much for me. It's this buttery smell that makes me instantly sick. Behind this wall, there are nuts and oranges, and some new wood I would say.
Better than on the nose. Still some fudge, but more in balance. Pepper, ginger and orange scream louder. Next, some ground coffee, dark tea and nuts. Water doesn't help as it brings out the fudge again, and releases a bitter and tanninic side.
Pepper, dark fruits, oranges, tobacco. This is the best part if you ask me.
8,6 Słodka z nutami wiśni, kawy, wanilii, kakao, orzechów oraz dębu z odrobiną toffi i miodu.
8,6 Cierpka z nutami wiśni, śliwki oraz kiwi z odrobiną kakao, goździka, mięty i cynamonu.
8,5 Wystarczająco długi, delikatnie ostry z nutami wiśni, cynamonu, wanilii i ananasa ze szczyptą białego pieprzu.
- not the best batch of abunadh!
Fruit, a lot, but not very expressive
powerful, makes me think of some young red wines
- A tad 'darker' than its predecessor batch 34. Apart from that they don't really differ that much, it's basically the same notes in a different ratio. Great continuation of the range and what a remarkable smoothness at over 60%!
Raisin, dark cherry, cranberry, raspberry, mocha, dark chocolate, orange and almond. With water also some red apple.
Cranberry, raisin, mocha, dark cherry, prune, dark chocolate, apple syrup and orange. With a drop of water more apple.
Mocha, dark chocolate, espresso, raspberry and apple syrup.
