Whisky Reviews for Aberlour A'bunadh batch #45
26 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.73 points
- The aroma is thick, sweet: sherry, many berries (ripe currants, tart cherry, raspberry jam), gum, resinous tree, dried fruits (figs, prunes), butter, a little bit of minerality. The taste is rich, sweet, sherry: berry jam, dried fruits in abundance, spicy spices, sponge cake with creamy cream, astringent oak with light bitterness, a hint of tablet minerality. Aftertaste : sherry notes, berry jam, dried fruits, sweet pastries, a hint of tobacco, astringent oak. Conclusion . Attractive sherry monster with good strength. Not outstanding from the A'bunadh family, but well built and bright. I like. Score 88 (n23t22f21b22).
- Very strong, spicy-fresh sherry, but not grown-old. Nice, but I do not break the hype here.
Chocolates, sherry, quite full, oranges, spices, hints of dates, dark chocolate
Full, dense sherry, bitter orange, cherry, dark chocolate, egg, gentle spice, ginger
Spicy, long, ginger, mocha, oak, cherry pits
- This is the epitome of a sherry bomb. Huge notes and that lovely dry gunpowdery sherry. I did find a bit of a bite to this, but nothing that would put me off from the massive flavours this thing is dishing out. This really is top class whisky .
