    Fruty and dark shokolad, amazing dram. Eair out 2 hours and 2 teespons of whater and it is perfekt.

    A little hotter than most other A'bunadh's. Normally water is not needed on these A'bunadh's but this one needs water. Much better with water, good, but, the least favourite of the A'bunadh's I have so far.

    Overall a very decent whisky, I will always have an A'bunadh in my bar if they keep up the good work and keep the price down.
    • Nose
      VERY fruity, some chocolate in there too, hint of wood varnish.
    • Taste
      Really strong in sherry but not a bomb because the chocolate and orange notes take it down a notch. The high ABV is very noticable in this one.
    • Finish
      Very hot, orange peel, lasted about a good 4 mins long.

  5. Gatopardo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    You need to savour this sip by sip, letting the drops getting inside your mouth and mix with your saliva to feel the warm and velvety explosion of flavours in your palate. Otherwise, at 61,2ABV you will be killed…
    Just some drops of water to open a little bit.
    I'm not sure if this a masterpiece but man, you will go one time and another to open the bottle and put your nose inside to smell that rich chocolate...
    • Nose
      Glue, varnish, lot of chocolate, sherry, sugared milk, cola, dry fruit, maybe raisins, wood, some spices. Fragant. Subtle hints of Terre d'Hermes. Possibly most snob tasting note I've made but, really, I feel it there.
    • Taste
      That velvety sherry in your mouth… hot and spicy because of the high ABV. Swet. Cola. Some oranges and tangerines around. Again some sugar. A bit oak. Massive. Mouthwatering.
    • Finish
      Great! Hot, spicy orange, long,

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Caramel, raisins, cherries in chocolate, burnt raisins of cranberry, syrup without syrup, skin, orange jam, a bit of woody coniferous windiness mixed with a smell of cherry pear. (88 b)
    • Taste
      Seriously strong sherry, creamy chocolate, orange jam. Despite its soft, smooth, no need to dilute. (88 b)

    Ask me about a Sherry bomb and I´ll talk about this single malt.

  9. Allandale scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very good batch.
    • Nose
      Seductive sherry notes, candied orange peel, hazelnut and mixed spices.
    • Taste
      A huge hit of sherry comes first, alive with orange and ginger. Dried fruits and dark chocolate follow close behind.
    • Finish
      Long and lovely. Complex. Bitter dark chocolate and allspice.
