Aberlour A'bunadh - Batch 46 non chill filtered and aged in Spanish Oloroso sherry butts. Very good buy.
boiled sweets, burnt sugar, light toffee, loads of vanilla and sherry, a hint of tea and white pepper, glace cherries, plenty of alcohol orange caramel and cardamom. With water buttery, burre niosette and spicy cardamom and brown sugar, very rich but complex, more savoury.
rich texture alcohol kicks in and limits the pallet With water creamy, buttery and spicy, vanilla, sherry, some leather notes, white pepper again, needs a lot of water to calm the alcohol but it can drown the whisky, big caramel, cinnamon.
orange note comes back, milk chocolate, some cinnamon, but the alcohol is very limiting. With water very gentle, nice spices, vanilla cream, caramel some floral notes and orange in the finish
