Aberlour A'Bunadh Alba Bottling Note

Aberlour's immensely popular A'Bunadh has grown with the introduction of A'Bunadh Alba! The name is a reference to Quercus Alba, which is the name of the American white oak which is used to age this very whisky. Drawn exclusively from first-fill American oak ex-bourbon barrels, this expression shows off a different side of Aberlour – you may be more familiar with its heavily sherried drams, but this one is more about fresh orchard fruits, shortbread, and almond notes.

Aberlour A'Bunadh Alba Reviews

Sort of a "good news/bad news" whisky

This A'Bunadh doesn't have much of a nose to comment upon, but it does have some good flavors of pear, apple and pineapple along with some oaky malt on the palate. The finish is mostly a lingering bourbon-oak sensation, but it's not too long, as you would expect of a NAS whisky. Overall, I would call the flavor profile "fruity oak". The one fairly significant fault with this whisky is the alcohol burn. You get some on the nose, then quite a bit on the palate and it continues into the finish - it just seems like this is good spirit should have stayed in the cask for another decade or so to smooth out that rough edge. So for @ $90.00 US, I can't recommend it. Price it at $50.00 and it would be something to consider. Carefully.
