Aberlour a'Bunadh #47 Bottling Note

Batch 47 of Aberlour's incredibly popular a'Bunadh series. As always, it's a stunning single malt which has matured in Spanish Oloroso sherry butts and been bottled at a sturdy 60.7% abv. No chill-filtering, no colouring, just great whisky!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Seductive sherry notes, candied orange peel, hazelnut and mixed spices.

Palate: A huge hit of sherry comes first, alive with orange and ginger. Dried fruits and dark chocolate follow close behind.

Finish: Bitter dark chocolate and allspice.

Overall: The a'Bunadh never disappoints! A drop of water or two wouldn't go amiss to bring out every flavour of this fantastic whisky.

    Batch 47

    was undecided last review but promised a better one later , well what a hidden gem this whiskey is at first I struggled to come to terms with however with a third of cold spring water or indeed a chunk of ice on top of a splash of spring water this becomes the smoothest whiskey I have had , it really is one to stoke the fire with this Christmas but I would advise not having the bottle too far away to save getting up too often , get some more master of malt this is lovely !!

    Great!

    All the good stuff here, but it's a rather young whisky so lacking some finess. Still excellent stuff

    Astonishing! I came across this whisky visiting a friend in a remote part of Sweden called Dalarna. I 'm a red wine lover with a sensitive palate and I have never understood all the hallelujah about whisky, though I've tried. This whisky was special, balanced and still intriguing to the palate and tongue! Sweet, with tones of dried fruits and sherry. Not too smoky. Not burning despite its strength. Maybe this is the start of an unexpected love affair. I have already bought a bottle as a gift to my brother who is a true fan of fancy whisky. I'm anxious to hear his judgement.

    A Cask Strength that pleases without water

    Enjoying a great sherry finished Scotch is a great experience. The Dalmore 18, The MaCallan and now, for me, Aberlour. What an excellent dram for a cask strength. Cask strength Scotch has always has a big bright greeting on the tongue for me and this particular sherried Scotch is so smooth, it doesn't pop with heat on the tongue at first. Greeted with a super smooth sweetness, uncharacteristic of cask strength, gives way to such a nice woodsy vanilla raisin creme flavor really just unbelievable. Moved this to the front next to the Glenlivet 15 Nadurra, the Balblair 24 and The Dalmore 18. It's replaced my signatory bottle of Jura 24 just because it's oh so awesome like that! What a price point!

    Unbelievable

    Perhaps personal preference - but I've not just tried, but become intimately familiar with close to 100 different bottles of scotch in the past year - dozens of distilleries both young and old (some 40+ years) and every time I come back to this bottle it blows my mind. It has to be my #1 favourite, unequivocally. Many scotches can be "good" but this bottle truly gets me excited. It's a delight to the senses. And for the money, that's incredible considering bottles up to 6 times its price have often not had me nearly as excited. You must try this - first neat, then try with adding a generous amount of water (a teaspoon to a 30mL dram). Just beautiful.

    The best value whisky you can buy?

    I'm lucky enough to have drunk some very good whisky and whiskey over the years. To put this into context I've currently got a Glenfarclas 40, and Macallans going from 25 down to 10 in the drinks cabinet. However, I can safely say that this is the first whisky I have had that actually gave me an anxiety attack after the first glass. All I could think about was buying more of it so that I would not have to suffer the terrible pain of running out. I've never thought that before, but with this dram I went out the following day and bout 5 more bottles (batch 47). I think that says a lot about both it's quality, it's price and it's relative rarity. The high ABV (60.7) might not be to some peoples taste and it will possibly put some people off but I recommend trying it before you poo poo it as being too strong. Also, I won't be telling you how to drink this stuff. With ice, with water or neat, it delivers a wall of flavour that is otherworldly. It; like a huge chocolatey, toffee, fig, oak and balsamic hammer blow from the gods. Neat it coats the glass and then the mouth like nothing else and even with the high ABV is worryingly drinkable. Bang in a bit of water (I went in at about 6/1) and it lightens up a wee bit bit doesn't become diluted, it just feels like your listening to an orchestra in a theatre instead of your front room. The flavours separate a little better and there's more space to taste things. However, if you want the full 'wall of flavour' experience then neat is highly enjoyable and intense. I don't want to bore you with all the different flavours (and there is a lorry load of them) but I will say that it is rich, very, very rich. Imagine christmas cake turned up to 11. Big cakey goodness. The best bit about it though is how drinkable it is. It is one of the most enjoyable drams I've ever had. The night I popped the top on my first bottle I was sitting in the garden on a summers night with 2 friends. One who is a rum drinker, one who only drinks bourbon. Neither really like whisky. We finished the bottle in one sitting. I've never seen non whisky drinkers so readily change their minds about what they think of whisky in my life. And to quote my mate Mike, the rum drinker on his first sit "holy Christ, what the hell is this?" And here is the clincher. If I was ever asked to recommend a whisky to someone, before trying this I had between 5 - 10 that I would flip between. After tying it I now only have one. I hope the quality is maintained, I hope the price is maintained and I hope more people get a chance to try it. It is very special.

    Wow

    Wow. Flavorful/strong burst on the smell. Sherry punch on the taste. Coats your palate. Likes to linger for minutes on end. Like I said... Wow.

    No regrets here

    This is my first Aberlour, and I'm simply immensely satisfied with my purchase. Never had one quite as strong on alcohol before, but found I didn't need to dull it too much with water. I've never had a malt that coats the mouth as this one does without water. Lovely stuff!

    Disappointing and therefor overpriced

    This used to be one of my favorites when batch was 5-20. So I thought this to be a safe buy. How wrong I was! The quality is not even close to the early batches. You can tell that this is relatively young spirit. So it has nothing to do with different casks or other influences, this has to do with aging. I guess Aberlour thought - as the age statement is absent - they could get away with it as A'bunadh is very popular these days. Well, that might be true. But I will never buy one again. I am very very disappointed in Aberlour and will look elsewhere for my dram. Thank goodness there are a lot of other options.

    Astonishingly good

    And extraordinarily rich and intense whisky, full and creamy with a big spicy sherry and a lovely deep, warming finish. Phenomenal quality and value for the price - I've had whiskies costing double or triple what this does which weren't nearly as good.

    12th June 2014

    Stunning

    You will need to let this dram open up a little so pour some, leave it a while and try it neat. Then if you want a a drop of water. Such a great nose you could smell it for hours, and with it being cask strength you get that brilliant warmth in your chest. Very deep and intense flavour, with those great sherry notes. A must buy.

    11th June 2014

    Great

    nice, strong spicy taste. delicious

    3rd June 2014

    Good

    I'm new to scotch tasting and found this one good but strong. would like to know what would be good to mix it with. I wanted to enjoy the flavor so I used assorted nuts between drinks to cut the strong taste. delicious. any suggestions welcome for the newcomer.

    2nd June 2014

    Can't recommend too highly

    Literally my favourite drink

    11th April 2014

    better than snapple ever was

    7th April 2014

    Great Whisky!

    The alcohol content is a bit too high, but this is a cask strenght. However I love it! Strong character and never disappoints! gp

    Purchased this elixir from Master of Malt. The nose, palate, finish and quality of the 47 are all truly sensational. Has a surprising creamy quality which really coats your mouth. As smooth as velvet. Absolutely no water required.

    11th March 2014

    Fantastic

    a step back to form from Aberlour, this beats 46 and 45 in my mind by a country mile
