Batch 55
Bought a bottle at Whiskey Shop in Dufftown in Scotland last week. Enjoying a complex and flavorful Dram now that I'm back in the States. Carmel, and butterscotch are primary flavors. With a touch of water, this cask strength Scotch is a winner!!

Batch 50 and 52
Excellent whiskey, if you buy a few different batches you can taste the variations over the years which is quite fun.
Overall this whiskey is a spice, sherry and dried fruit bomber. On the nose you get a big hit of sherry and some underlying bitterness. The palate has a dried dark fruit sweetness, strong sherry notes with some coffee bean and nuttiness, maybe candied almond. The finish has some strong lingering nutmeg and allspice flavors that were there all along in addition to a nice sherry note and some bitterness. There is some hint of immature spirit in the early finish and the nose but that is literally the only thing wrong with a near perfect drink.

Just tried it
It is in the top 3 I've ever tasted. Incredible, strong, aromatic, very long finish and a killer effect over all.

when I can afford to treat myself.
Absolutely love this stuff ordered a bottle on my 21rst well over a decade ago and have yet to find anything this strong with such a great taste since and I have tried many along the way.

My go-to whisky
I tried this for the first time at the whisky museum in Edinburgh, and immediately dismissed everything else. I'm a whisky amateur, but the complex aromas and flavors, combined with its strength, had me hooked from the first sip.

Maybe I'm crazy
I'm not super palate man or anything like that, but this tasted more like cognac than scotch to me. No complaints though, it's really nice, 4 and half.

Holy $h!t
I'm having this fantastic scotch as I'm writing this review. Powerful yet beautifully smooth for a single malt with 60% alcohol. Great sweetness with the right amount of bitterness. Almost feels like great quality Portuguese aged moonshine (aguardente). I taste dried figs or raisins. Very sweet aromas of dried fruits, vanilla, chocolate and a little orange. I like.

Aberlour Rocks
Aberlour is one of my two favorites Scotches. With The A'Bunadh being on top (love the 10&12 too). It is the perfect balance of orange, spice, sherry and oak. The raisins and cocoa are a nice finish. Watch out... Higher than normal alcohol proof! Drink it neat, and if you must, sip some decent h2o in between.
