Recently, I had the opportunity to take a walk through the airport shops, mainly in the whisky departments. In fact, nothing particularly interested me. Yes, I met terribly expensive bottles Dalmore, Macallan or 50-year-old Glenfiddich, except that I treat them rather as a permanent exhibition.
From products for people, my eyes attracted Aberlour A’Bunadh, batch 58, 61.1% ABV and I decided to take it on a further journey. Yes, it’s a NAS, except that in a natural presentation – colour, no chill filtration and after the previous editions I can assume it’ll be good.

C: dark amber;

N: from the very beginning quite heavy and all-encompassing, smoked, dried plums, wood smoke, plums in chocolate, cherries, traditional compote, lots of dried fruits, traces of burned wood, touch of cut wood, then again a wave of fruits with peach, dried apricot, candied orange, there are a lot of fruits, you can still count them for a long time; after a moment a drop of lemon, and then mint and chamomile, probably enough of that description, the smell certainly does not disappoint; a drop of water enhances the impression;

T: the power is obvious and does not let you forget about it, after cooling down a lot of plums appear in various forms, dried, smoked, in chocolate, fresh and ripe, sweet cherries, candied orange, after them I have ginger, cardamom and mint, with time tannins manifests, but it is still interesting; a drop of water enlarges the taste range;

F: long with plums, with distinct dryness and tannins.

Score: 90.

As it turned out, Aberlour A’Bunadh, batch 58, 61.1% ABV, proved to be a very good choice and fulfilled its task. I know that everything tastes better on holidays, but the tasting repeated at home confirmed previous impressions.
Hurray for A’Bunadh!

    A’bunadh trzyma poziom, chociaż Batche różnią się zacznie zapachem i smakiem, to jednak jakość zdaje się pozostawać na podobnym, wysokim poziomie. Dla mnie mistrzostwem jest batch 47 (z tego, co wiem, był to ostatni Single Cask). Petarda. Zawsze chętnie wracam do A’bunadh… Świetny wpis
