Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Heavily Sherried malt, walnuts, dark chocolate and clove.

Palate: Sweeter and fruitier on the palate, with bags of orange segments and black cherries developing against the intense Christmas spices.

Finish: A little bit of damp tobacco lingers alongside Mocha and sweet Sherry.

Aberlour A'Bunadh Batch 55 Reviews

Good comments about this whiskey.

A Nice Draught
It warms my throat and makes me able to live longer. The price is just fine.
I love it ♪.
The taste of the sherry was brilliant.

Soul warming

Writing this review after trying the 56, 57 and 58 because I feel I was doing the world a dis-service by not stating how good this batch was/is. Don't get me wrong the subsequent batches have been good but have lacked the fruity, sherried flavour that explodes in your mouth like this does. This is life affirming stuff. If you can find it don't hesitate

Fantastic

Probably the best speyside whisky I've tasted. Rich, smooth, definitely can taste the sherry

Beast of a dram

Amazingly complex and punchy dram,it's a beast and enjoyable one at that

Floral bouquet of a mafia funeral

Another one from Canada! Having a taste testing get together with the boys. You get hit with a plethora of flavours like a punch in the face. Cinnamon, pepper, coconut with a touch of iodine. Soft finish but lasting.

This is a wonderfull whisky for an unbelievably low price

What a beauty.
I enjoy a rather broad range of whisky's. I've enjoyed many single malts, sherry, port or bourbon barrel-aged whisky's, peated malts, single grains, etc, etc. even some blends and a few bourbons, all varying from €20 to €1200. Aberlour A'Bunadh batch 55 is one of my favourites, and at about €52, that is freakin CHEAP! one of the cheaper whisky's in my collection even. I haven't tasted a Sherry cask whisky better than this one.
The sherry is clearly present in the aroma. i also detect a hint of orange zest, maybe some rosé wine tannins, a bit of dark chocolate, and a pleasent, sweet herbal note towards the end. despite the cask strength (60.9%) it's a very easy drinking dram. I don't have a single bad word to say about this. Perfection?

Packs a punch

At 60.9% it packs quite a punch, but the quality shines through without being overpowered by the alcohol. Ive bought previous batches of A'Bunadh, and from what i can remember this is the best. It's a tad too strong for me to properly enjoy without water, so i add a drop and give it 10 mins to open up before enjoying it one small sip at a time.

Helluva a Deal!

My first introduction to this was the 53 batch which I loved, and didn't expect to enjoy the 55 as much, but I love it even more. Love the 60% cask strength, as you get much more value when some clean water separates out the notes for more appreciation.

My current favorites are Glendronach Parliment 21, Pulteney 21, and this one...perhaps best at half the price, and 60%...it's a great deal, and much higher quality than you would expect. Here's my strongest endorsement--I have stocked up with 12 bottles, more than any other of the 30 brands I have.

Superb Batch

This is the best of the last 4 A'Bunadh batches--without question!

Every batch is interesting

Must say i liked the batch #33 best - but the recent batches arent worse, just a little different. I like it best without water so the intensity isnt suppressed. This is my clear favorite - and ive tried Glenfarclas 25yr and other much more expensive whiskies...

A real quality dram for the money

Picked this up for 35 pounds on offer at a local store. Thanks to the 3rd May review below - on your advice I went for the 55. You can tell quality sherry casks have been used here. On the nose its instantly a big rich sherry bomb. You can smell its cask strength too - theres that ethanol potency you get with a 60% plus dram. There a strong oak presence in the background too which then reveals a kind of tobacco-ey note too - in a pleasant, sweet pipe tobacco way though. To taste, its just as you woudl expect from the nose, very smooth though. Sweet caramelly sherry..very glenfarclas-esque, spicy oak, a tiny (pleasant) bitter edge. A great long finish too - i'm still tasting the sweet notes now, almost tobacco and...carrot-cake! I tend to be a snob and seek out unusual, limited releases, indy bottlings etc as opposed to something of a supermarket stocked dram. This just shows how ignorant I can be. I enjoyed this as much as some of the expensive limited batch Benriachs and Glendronnachs I have for a hell of a lot more money.

Another Delicious batch

Compare to batch 54, the spiciness and fiery are pretty much absent in the 55, very smooth and much easier to have it neat. Sherry note is also more pronounce, slightly more dark fruits and nuttier, it is just as deliciously creamy but slightly longer and bolder finish, 55 also has slightly less cinnamon on the palate. I like them both, 54 has more kick while 55 is more tame, I don't mind stocking up either one as I still have two bottles of 54 and two new 55 in the cabinet. If I could only keep one batch then 55 is definitely my personal preference due to the overall smoothness, and slightly more intense finish.
