The Aberlour A’bunadh is a natural cask-strength malt produced without the modern chill filtering methods. This is a malt with no age specification, and tasting notes can vary significantly per batch.

Nose: Rather bold, rich caramel.

Mouth: Quite powerful, warm sherry. Mouth numbing.

Finish: Long, warm and tingly.

A quite powerful malt, the A’bunadh is not for everyone. I would still definitely recommend that every scotch lover try it, and it may become a recurring choice for some. Adding water tends to bring out more fruity notes.
