A'Bunadh Batch 44
This is Batch 44 of the irrepressible Aberlour A'Bunadh bottling. The A'Bunadh is labelled without an age statement and is bottled at a cask strength of 59.7% abv. Although each batch is unique, this heavily sherried and excellent value malt whisky remains extremely popular and it's easy to see why.
Big Oloroso sherry notes of coffee and 85% cocoa chocolate on the nose followed by roasted coffee beans and burnt raisins on the palate. The finish is big and spicy with some fruit compote on the tail.
I have a'bunadh Batch no11. 59.8%
The bottle has the original box.
I have not found a good reason to open, or does it

I had trouble making this bottle last, at 59.7% is incredibly smooth, but don't get me wrong it still has a kick. I found I enjoyed it best with a small splash of water, definitely a strong sherry taste and some citrus on the tongue overall I'd say it met my expectation and was worth the $70 I paid for it.

I can't put my finger on it exactly but I recently bought a bottle of batch 44 and am a tad disappointed. it's probably me, but I felt I could detect a very faint 'sulphurous' hint, and found the strength of the alcohol drowned out some of the flavours and gave the nose too much intensity. when I added a tad of water it improved slightly, but not as much as I would have liked. as others seem to rave about this whisky, i'll put it down to my personal preferences, but wont be buying another bottle

Started with Batch 22 & will keep going.
The first Batch I had was 22. I have travelled through to here. I have arrived at 44. Standard is excellent. I love introducing my friends to these as they arrive. Never been disapointed. Master of Malts delivery is second to none. This is a dram for grown ups.

Batch 42 - wow!
Excellent. Wonderful finish.

Batch 42 is 60.3% abv. I keep this locked up with my 20- and 30-year olds because it's that good, that complex. It is chocolatey, chewy, spicy on the palate. On the nose I detect raisins and---is it?---a hint of peat. The finish is strong, spicy, memorable. How can something this cheap be this good?
