Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch 60
Aberlour A’bunadh Batch 60 is the 60th release, from one of the longest surviving cask strength releases among all distilleries. First batches (unnumbered at the start) were issued back in 1997 and the latest batch released in 2018 is Batch 62. Each batch of this whisky is blended from barrels ranging from 5 to 25 years old.
A’bunadh is exclusively aged in Spanish oak Oloroso sherry butts, therefore, gives it a sweeter, softer flavour than most Scotch. A’bunadh is not chill filtered.
The name a’bunadh is described as the Scottish Gaelic for ”the original’, though is possibly a misspelling of am bunadh, meaning ‘the origin’.
Nose: Brandy butter, cinnamon buns, a touch of sun-dried tomato.
Palate: Brown sugar, dark chocolate, Christmas cake drenched in rum, flamed orange peel.
Finish: A generous handful of cinnamon, clove and black pepper.
