(96-100) Points - Wine Enthusiast
A'bunadh, literally meaning "the origin" in Gaelic is a tribute to the whiskey makers of the past, particularly James Fleming who founded the Aberlour distillery in 1879. The bottle's unusual shape is reminiscent of the old apothecary bottles the 19th Century villagers used to collect their Scotch straight from the cask.
Aberlour a'bunadh is matured in Spanish oak Oloroso Sherry casks, the rarest and most precious casks used for maturation. Bottled at cask strength, a'bunadh has slightly smoky aromas laced with red apples. Since it is bottled without the use of chill-filtering methods, a richer mouthfeel and flavor complexity is achieved. Buttery and creamy on the palate, intense fruit flavors blend beautifully with chocolate and orange notes. The warming finish is slightly peaty with hints of honey and spice. To get the most out of your Scotch, it is recommended to add a dash of water to fully release the complex aromas and flavors.
