As one of the few NAS whiskies I really like, Aberlour A'bunadh rarely disappoints. This Speysider needs water and a bit of experience to be fully enjoyed. It's a sherry monster with an intense aroma of prunes, dried fruits and crème brûlée. Tasting strong, with a nice interplay of sweet and dry notes, the well-balanced Spanish oak contributes to a rich mouthfeel. The finish is long and warming with mixed spices, cloves and traces of cayenne pepper. A great bang for your buck Single Malt which is often considered the sherried equivalent to Ardbeg Uigeadail.
