  • Ryan commented on Aberlour 16 Years Old Double Cask:

    Hi James, I greatly prefer the A'Bunadh over the 16yr. But as you've probably noticed, I've got a real affinity for big, bold sherry bombs! :) In my opinion, the A'Bunadh is THE best variation of Aberlour on LCBO shelves. From a value perspective, the higher price is more than compensated by the higher ABV.

  • James Peach commented on Aberlour 16 Years Old Double Cask:

    Thank you for the review and interesting to hear it was once bottled at 43%ABV. I do wonder if there are any such bottling lurking on the shelves anywhere. Surely a bargain in this day and age however, at 40%ABV I feel it is a different proposition (perhaps I'm jaded, but at the minimum ABV I have found many bottlings wanting and I have found I am invariably disappointed) and perhaps the couple of extra $'s for A'Bunadh to be the more worthy purchase. How would you compare the two on both an absolute and value basis?

    I have an unopened bottle available if someone is still looking. email
