Dram Review: Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch No 19

[59.9%・NAS・Official Bottling]


A gentle woodiness that brings along notes of French leather and finely cut tobacco, and lives and breathes of dark sherry; refined, classy and alluring.  Thick cream atop of Christmas cake that has a malty biscuit base, dressed with toasted almonds and milk chocolate nibs with a flow of maraschino cherries.

Palate & Finish:

Rich and powerful, a syrupy entry drenched with molasses, cola bear lollies with the oak acting as a counterbalance.  The tannins elevates the fragrant note whilst giving a bitterness that serves to draw the sweetness back, preventing it from being overwhelming.

The maltiness comes through and the barley grist provides for a textured mouthfeel.  The hints of dark cherry and dark chocolate just keep on extending, mesmerising.


Bravo!  It’s batches like this that made the A’Bunadh such an iconic series.  An absolutely beautiful sherried whisky.  They really don’t make them like this anymore.
