Aberlour A'Bunadh #61 Bottling Note

Aberlour's A'Bunadh releases are always welcome here at MoM Towers - we do love a heavily-Sherried single malt, and that's exactly what you're getting here.

This is Aberlour's 61st batch of A'Bunadh, and as usual, it's drawn exclusively from Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts and bottled at cask strength without chill-filtration or additional colours.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Brandy butter, chocolate gateau, robust cinnamon and honeycomb.

Palate: Layers of honey, tobacco and strawberry jam. Underlying warmth of yet more cinnamon and now clove.

Finish: Very long, with peppery oak, orange peel and dark chocolate truffle.

Honest opinion

I'm not a Speyside aficionado (usually a fan of Irish and peat-forward Islays), so I'm writing this review on behalf of similarly inclined whisky drinkers.

As soon as I opened the bottle I has a bad feeling this wasn't going to be for me. Heavily sherried aroma noticeable from the start. Dark fruit and perhaps hints of Christmas cake.

Palate is much of the same: sherry boldly asserts itself and finishes with a warming spicy kick. Quite smoky this one, and as MoM points out, hints of tobacco and cinnamon.

I wouldn't call this whiskey harsh but does have boozy profile - which at 60% ABV is to be expected - but it does taste slightly young in my opinion. I think this is a decent after dinner whiskey but is sitting on my shelf longer than most other bottles do, unfortunately.

Average cask strength dram

Was looking forward to this after previous releases . Hard to say without a previous bottling to hand what has changed but it's not as I remember. Nice strong whisky, balanced but nothing special .

Strong and subtle. Like the man you want to be

Overwhelmingly creamy and rich with heavy Sherry flavor. Absolutely delightful

Knockout sherry bomb

Wow. I'm a big fan of more aggressive islay malts, and this is as far removed from Corryvrevkan that you can get, but like most things in life, maintaining a balance is a good thing, so it's attractive to have a wide range of flavours in your cabinet. The cask strength is evident, and a few drops of water soften it up beautifully, thereafter its like scoffing Terry's chocolate orange and fruit cake. The finish is excellent, I'm getting chocolate, pears and marzipan but it lasts for ages, it's reminiscent of the Ardbegs in that respect. I found my bottle in a local Waitrose, they also has some batch #59 and batch #60 mixed up with this #61 on the shelf, I was tempted to buy all three!
