    Hmmm I don't know I would not praise this whisky (batch 37) as much as many others do with the a'bunadh series and maybe others are even better. Maybe a different drinking strength is also better than my 45% (my personal favorite strength for whisky).
    I would simply rate it as good quality in any case and top in terms of price / performance, but in the end it is too unbalanced for me. "Sweet meets rough" you have to be in the mood for.
    • Nose
      Undiluted: Very strong, honey and chocolate sweet raisins. Due to the high alcohol content, there is a smell of alcohol over everything, which dampens the other rumors and is easily noticed. Other dark fruits can also be found, but weak and few.

      Diluted to 45%: alcohol veil completely gone, but also some of the previous intense aroma. What remains is a sherry whisky that is still sweet and raisin-stamped.
    • Taste
      Diluted to 45%: sweetish towards chocolate, (fruit) sugar and honey, relatively fresh and tangy whisky tasting like fruits like cherries.
    • Finish
      Becoming slightly woody and bitter, then tending towards dark chocolate, this leaves a slightly bitter basic tone together with sweetness as a contrast compensation.
