Manufacturer Description

Aberlour A'Bunadh - Batch 49 non chill filtered and aged in Spanish Oloroso sherry butts. Very good buy.
 
Nose

We're back into the more fruity side of a'bunadh here. The last batch I tried was 47. That had some more savoury notes. Here we have deeper red jams and dusty, dunnage warehouse. More floral notes than normally found in a'bunadh. Maraschino-rich fruitcake (a bit a tasting note cheat, I know, but true nonetheless). Cinnamon and a touch of mint. Well worn leather. A little almond. Baked apple. Dark wine gums.
 
Palate

Nice delivery here. Sweeter than that B47 I mentioned, and lacking all of the bittering notes. Ooey, gooey fruits sauce or spoonfuls of mixed berry jam. Ever use your teeth to pull off leather gloves? Y'know that leathery flavour that lingers? Yep...that's what I'm getting at. Baked apple with rich spices. Quite plummy and tangy. Juicy and mouthwatering throughout.
 
Finish

The florals are a surprise. As is the relative softness. Especially in contrast with the asskicking abv. More restrained and simple than I'm accustomed to with this malt, but absolutely no less wonderful for it. And no matter what impression you get here, make no mistake. This is big whisky.
