The Aberlour Distillery is at the heart of Speyside, Scotland’s premier whisky-making region. Founded in 1879, although the distillery has modernised over the past 100 years, there is still an integral sense of tradition and character that runs through the production method and architecture of this quality producer. Aberlour A’bunadh is a unique cask strength whisky which has achieved cult status among whisky connoisseurs. Meaning ‘the original’ in Gaelic, A’bunadh is made in homage to Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming, using only traditional methods without chill filtration or other modern processes. The result is a heavier, creamier single malt than most have ever experienced – memorably flavoursome, with an intense raisin character. Pronounced and focused, the nose displays aromas of allspice, praline and spiced orange, in harmony with deep notes of Oloroso Sherry. A superlatively creamy palate displays notes of orange, black cherries, dried fruit and ginger, spiked with dark bitter chocolate and enriched with lingering sherry and oak. Robust and long lasting on the finish, with bittersweet notes of exotic spices, dark chocolate and oak, this is an exceptional dram.
