Aberlour A'Bunadh #56 Bottling Note

It's the 56th batch of Aberlour's very popular A'Bunadh, matured in Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts and bottled at cask strength. These are always excellent as winter warmers and postprandial drams.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Heavy slabs of milk chocolate, with touches of almond and Christmas cake.

Palate: Intense. Dried fruit notes are turned up to 11, and are joined by dark chocolate truffle and herbaceous cigar box elements.

Finish: Very long. Subtle peppery hints hide underneath the Sherried peels and coffee bean notes.

56 Batch

I though there was no greater love than the wife and the kids. Until I got this in my Christmas stocking. It's a glass of class.

However owing to the strength add good dash of water just to mellow it out a bit and bingo.

Nose:-
Pepper
Chocolate
Oak

Taste

Fruitcake
Sherry
Hawthorn

Feelings of

Winter, Christmas and contemplative moods
I well rounded and IMHO balanced Single Malt of distinction rates in my top 5. That swap top spot depending on my mood and the season I am in.

Batch 56

I bought both batch 55 en 56 to compare. i'll only describe 56 here, ofcourse.

Nose: Soft and sweet, candied fruits, nuts, marzipan and chocolate. also some freshly ground pink pepper. Very invating perfume.

Palate: The cacao returns and the sherry aroma seems less dominant than in batch 55. Again candied fruits, cedarwood. After a few drops of chilled spring water the palare really opens up and new flavours emmerge. Herbal notes add to the picture.

Finish: Longer and fuller than batch 55. Herbs and cedarwood. The bitter hint of really dark chocolate. The peppery aroma also contributes to the finish.

In conclusion, i like batch 55 just a tiiiny bit better. I was amazed, however, by how much difference there was in all tree aspects above. i like the nose and finish on this batch better but the flavour palate on 55 makes it win for me, but by a hair. just like that 2% better to me.

Another Great Batch of A'Bunadh from Aberlour

This is another excellent value batch of A'Bunadh and represents outstanding value at £47 a bottle which given this is cask strength of 61.2% is the equivalent of about £30 a bottle at 40%.

If you're interested in the history of A'Bunadh, check out the Wiki page which reveals the first batches were releases in 1997.

Batch #56 continues the tradition of a chocolate and sherry flavoured malt with a very Christmassy dried fruit and a hint of spice. At this strength it needs some water to open it up fully.
