    More on: https://tomtrinkt.blog/
    • Nose
      Slightly alcoholic, very strong sherry notes, some milk chocolate, oranges, leather and a pleasant oak flavor.
    • Taste
      Extremely powerful start with 60.9 turns. Dominant sherry notes, cherries, dates and cocoa and coffee beans open up the tremendous taste explosion. It is followed by oranges, a touch of vanilla / caramel, red fruits and a neat nuttiness, paired with spicy oak notes. Without water, the whisky, depending on the shape of the day, for me quite good drinkable. When adding a few drops of water, however, you should be careful with the dosage, as the Aberlour tends quickly to "dilute" and thus easily lose its intense aromas variety.
    • Finish
      Medium length, fruity sherry notes, caramel and spicy oak notes accompany the finish. Some bittersweet chocolate and orange peel complete the harmonious finish.

  5. Prodigy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    One of the better batches. Good sherry punch and no sulphur detected
    Great value for money - as usual

  6. Dominik scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Dark and strong whisky. Sherry bomb with a punch and very fairly priced at EUR 50-60 as of this writing.

    P.S.: After adding a drop or two of water, the A'bunadh became even more creamy for me, mostly on stronger caramel and fruity cherry aromas.
    • Nose
      Strong sherry with dried fruits (raisins) and a peppery spiciness on top of the sweetness. Cinnamon and oranges.
    • Taste
      The sweetness dominates at first, dark fruits (ripe cherries) with dark chocolate. Creamy in the mouth. Then hints of wood and a burning spiciness coming, perhaps, from the 60.9% alcohol content. Still pleasant and well-rounded though, even without water.
    • Finish
      Medium length finish, still mostly sweet. The spicy notes dissipate quickly, leaving a pleasant dry sherry taste mixed with oak.

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The A'bunadh are always very good bill, and I recommend all new lovers of sherry rush.
    For my part, I think I went around this traffic jam - it was my fifth batch.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    Whisky n ° 1404
    • Nose
      A not-so-pleasant note of cardboard that happily vanishes quickly enough, supplanted by dried fruits, leather. It's rich, round, honeyed. Toffee. I was expecting something more "snoring". With a little water, he releases all his greed.
    • Taste
      Intense, on the sherry obviously, very spicy. A note of "my darling" (no pun, please). A direct, relatively uncomplicated side reflects its relatively young age.
    • Finish
      Intense and spicy finish

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This a'bunadh is again wonderful, especially on the nose.
    • Nose
      The nose is surprisingly soft on plum marmalade, grilled pineapple, red shoelace candy (remember this?) and overripe strawberries. Lovely notes of toffee apples and dark chocolate. However, if you leave it to breath for more than a few minutes, a touch of rubber appears.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is (obviously) all about sherry notes: plums, dades, dark chocolate, raisins, figs and again strawberries. It is still surprisingly quaffable without water. I had expected a bomb of alcohol, but this one does not burn. It reminds me somewhat of very old sherry (doh! again), but on steroids. Dark and sweet as can be expected from a'bunadh.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and spicy with a salty death. It leaves the mouth parched.

  10. spigray scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    very good, and a real sensation at that price.
    • Nose
      the expected sherry bomb but with a lighter profile than the last batch I´ve tried (#52). sultanas and prunes, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. crystallized orange peel, crystallized ginger, some mushroomy aromas, rubber bands
    • Taste
      a very fresh sherry taste with obligatory dried fruits, but also a good amount of orange, very spicy and mouthwatering.
    • Finish
      long, warm, mouth watering
