A really great dram at a very reasonable price for cask-strength whisky of this exceptional quality. Aberlour a'bunadh is hugely sherried and intensely flavoured: a whisky to cherish. Please note that batch numbers and strengths vary for this bottling.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    One of these famous malts that make us lesser mortals tremble. Batches #11 and 15 have been my favourites so far, let’s see if #20 will join them in the pantheon.

    Colour: deep amber with brownish/orangey hues.

    Nose: oloroso galore! Very big notes of raisins, chocolate, prunes, cherry liqueur, cloves... All that is nicely dry and even a tad smoky but that may well come from the alcohol. With water: it gets a bit more herbal and slightly wild as well as meatier. Is that English brown sauce?

    Mouth (neat): very powerful of course but not undrinkable, quite astonishingly. Big sherry, big raisins, hints of mint and chlorophyll, litres of kirsch (just like when you put your nose over a demijohn)... But let’s not tempt fate – so, with water: gets more herbal again, with notes of thyme and rosemary, sage, bay leaves... Also quite maltier and even a little smoky. Finish: long, coating, elegant (yes) and spicier (pepper and ginger). Shoo, to the pantheon!  90 points.

    Batch 25. So smooth and creamy. Reminded me of tablet, dark chocolate and spiced fruit.

    Just started on a bottle from batch no. 30, and I'm loving it as much as my bottles from 15 and - I think - 20 previously.I too am really quite happy to drink this one neat - gorgeous stuff!

  • Terry Fitzgerald Australia 24 June 2010

    Batch 23 - 60.2% - would have to be one of the best whiskys I have had the pleasure of tasting. Great aroma and palate. Certainly enjoyed 24/7.

  • Sergey, Russia 14 June 2010

    Stunned by whisky! The best that I tried for today. Only Ardbeg Uigeadail can compete with this drink. Aroma simply knocks down. Taste fantastic. Drink not diluted! Otherwise loses half of charm.

  • J.Mackenzie 30 May 2010

    I would suggest that this is a man's whisky. Very full bodied and with a potent character. The strength is more than apparent but add an ice cube and float on the slight sweetness and hints of peaty smokiness. Glad I bought this bottle...

  • pete 4 May 2010

    Batch no. 29 @ 59.9% now in Seattle, WA, USA... a no-brainer buy: all the evocative complexity described in earlier reviews (raisin, cedar chest, mint, chocolate, oloroso staves), with the cask-strength to kick one's a**.

    This is fabulous stuff. I like it neat.

    Une d?couverte, un vrai regal, domaine que je ne connaissais pas. Un whisky n?xxx appelle forc?ment un autre n?xxxx

  • Gary 24 December 2009

    GOB SMACKED that you can buy such a smooth, potent whisky at this price. Worthy to grace any collection. I really can't believe the price for this quality.

  • greetings from poland 5 December 2009

    i bought this among 5 other bottles of your site and after tasting it im putting it away so that nobody can see it. This is a gem, if i could i would drink it all the time. put some water in it (mine was batch 27 60,1%) and you will sail away. buy it enjoy it!

  • Bill 21 November 2009

    I am not a whisky buff but,this nectar, is an exquisite whisky. The aromas and the flavours are wonderful. My son and my son-in-law were both amazed by it. I`ve bought them each a bottle,so now they have my favourite dram when I visit them. I like it as they do with a drop of water. Just what does the more aged and expensive ones taste like! Tell you what,we`ll buy a bottle between us and find out.

  • Harry in Cumbria 7 November 2009

    just about to crack open a batch 25 at 60.4%. I stumbled across it at batch 18 (56%?) and decided it was the best of two hundred or so other brands that I'd had previously. Let down with a hint of water is nectar. It's the one for me.

  • Mac?maleren 30 October 2009

    anyone tastet batch no 18

  • rwbenjey 25 October 2009

    This stuff kicked my palate to crap. I like a little bit of sweetness but this tasted like someone added a fair amount of maple syrup to a helping of sherry; over the top. For what it is, a speyside, it's probably the most rich, flavorful dram from that region But, it's not for me. I think I will stick with my Islay and Highland malts.

  • TheDouglas 23 October 2009

    I bought a few of these: batches 6, 9, 12. Working on 12 even now. God knows I drink it slow but it drinks exceedingly fine. I wish I could get more of 12.

  • Jack, Arizona 5 October 2009

    I had the 19th batch, also a great one:)

  • Byron Forsyth 29 August 2009

    I just purchased my second bottle of Aberlour a'bunadh,batch #23,will take it on test run tonight for supper. I'm sure it will be just as exciting as my first experience, excellent. Byron-Canada Aug./29/09
