The A’bunadh is classic Aberlour, heavy on the sherry cask and strong on flavor. The nose is dried figs, cinnamon, and honey with a bit of roasted almonds underneath. The taste is thick and syrupy, with a spicy kick of cilantro and black pepper that lingers as honey, molasses, and brown sugar notes reveal themselves, along with a touch of orange peel. The citrus notes continue into the finish, along with a touch of dark chocolate and campfire smoke. (October, 2009)
