Whisky Reviews for Aberlour A'bunadh batch #54

32 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.41 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2016]  I emptied a bottle together with friends.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My
    notes state a very complex and rich sherry profile with slight sulphury notes (bearable).  Without the sulphur I would have rated it 92+ points.  Very, very quaffable...

  2. uap304 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    This is a good one, folks. This batch isn't so fruity, just a monstrous feat of engineering. It's surprisingly easy to over-dilute though.
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry, creamy vanilla, spices, dark fruits, orange, dark chocolate, coffee, and faint sulfur vitamin.
    • Taste
      Thick and syrupy. With an intense attack of sharp sherry and coffee. Spices, vanilla, and honey. It's a symphony.
    • Finish
      Intensely dying, but also long and richly sweet. It's a long, slow fade of the palate. Stupidly well-balanced.

    Good. Tasted at the Kontiolahti 11/2017.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, wood, rubber
    • Taste
      Alcohol, wood, sherry, vanilla, almond
    • Finish
      A long, somewhat sweet, reversible nice aftertaste.

  10. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The influence of the sherry cask was clearly a lot less than on earlier batches, but it remains one helluva dram. The price may vary though… from 50 to 70 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is honeysweet and reminds me more of a GlenDronach than an a’bunadh at first. I get loads of toffee, white chocolate, cranberries and rose water, drenched in orange juice. But there are hardly any of the typical dark sherry hints such as plums, dades or raisins. Nevertheless, this is a very inviting and lovely nose, do not get me wrong. But surprisingly different from what I expect from an a’bunadh.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is – obviously – a big boy. The high ABV makes me gasp for breath. Again cranberries and oranges, upholstered with nutmeg, pepper and some cocoa. Good, but not overly complex.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and offers some peach.
