aberlabunadh.jpgThanks are in order to Jeff, the newest fellow of Scotch Blog, for bringing us this rare treat from a distillery which has thus far not graced our pages. 

The Aberlour a'bunadh, which is bottled from the cask at 59.7 percent ABV, is a surprisingly smooth and chewy scotch which reveals its powerful alcohol content only late, so take it slow and remember you're drinking a cask strength malt. 

Colour: Deep crimson and rust. 

Nose: Rich fresh fruit, orange zest, cloves and black pepper, sweet syrupy hints. 

Palate: Dry, malty, astringent. Cranberries, red apple, dark chocolate, bitter orange, cloves, nutmeg and brown sugar. Hints of cinnamon, peppermint , and other Christmasy spices as it finishes. 

Finish: Brief and smooth, leaving a dry apple cider aftertaste. 

Overall: Excellent. Complex, rich, fruity and well balanced. A remarkably smooth flavor for such a strong alcohol content.

A fantastic sherry bomb! One of the only remaining quality Speyside sherried expressions left in the LCBO. Grab while you can!
