  1. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    beautiful sherried
    whisky with the complete christmas cake
    experience, with notes of coffee, tobacco, and a beautiful cake-y taste, sadly
    it’s too spicy for my taste, but still deserves a good score because
    ultimately… it is good

    Batch # 58 is one of the better ones from the newer bottlings.

  3. liquid_spirit scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The A'bunadh are just awesome! For almost 60 € and always about 60 turns you can (not) do anything wrong. The PLV benchmark for a "sherry bomb".

    Solid fruite and strong but delightful Aberlour.
    Coffee notes and dark chocolate, very nice dram.

    Good whisky, interesting in the format of leisurely tasting. Classic shepherd, balanced. A bit extreme to taste, in its pure form, it's hard to overcome. However, with the addition of water, it became much worse, flattened.

      Many oak, pronounced sherry, coconut milk, vanilla, roman style, exotic fruits, berries, citrus fruit candied fruits, honey, Christmas cake, dried fruits, dried figs, marzipan, plum jam, chocolate candies with liqueur, raisins, marinades, leather notes, dust, cardboard. Spirituality is felt by pinching the nose. With the addition of water manifested greens, tobacco, sour berries.

      Peppers, freshly oak, plums, candied fruits, tea black tea, black chocolate, red berries. At full strength it is very saturated, even stunning, on the verge of receptor perception.

      Plum, pepper, oak, warm, volumetric, juicy, sweet, long, chocolate, orange. As for me, the oak has a bit of a surplus. Very informative, pleasant aftertaste.

    batch 58!
    • Nose
      épices imposantes,poivrées et aussi plus cuisinières (clou de girofle),et du sherry sherry avec des fruits noirs madérisés!
      du gâteau au café et au chocolat à la vanille
      du bois imbibé,du vernis vieux,un peu de cuir qui se dégage
      un retour un peu toasté
    • Taste
      explosion de poivres, de poussière, de fruits macérés et surcuits, un peu de massepain aussi.
      à nouveau café et chocolat noir amer
      les fruits proviennent plus de fruits séchés et inondés d'alcool, avec un retour de colle aussi et de vernis
      le chocolat noir laisse la place à du cacao bien amer cette fois!
    • Finish
      très épicée, longue perception en bouche
      un retour boisé au fond du verre
      importance du côté sherry jeune sans la moisissure

      peut être additionnée d'un peu d'eau ,ce qui amplifie les senteurs de fruits et de bois, les épices devenant moins poivrées.
