The Original Aberlour.

The waters in these parts of Speyside are known not only for their purity but also for their healing powers according to druid priests that lived there in times of the Celts. Later, they used the same water to baptise them into Christianity. So it is no wonder they used nature's best and produced a fantastic product. What is better to make from water than Scotch Whisky!?

True to this legacy and heritage, young James Fleming, a farmer's son who supplied grain to local distilleries had a dream to build a perfect distillery in the 19th century. A daring modernist as he was, he did not let anything differ from his expectations. And his dream of the perfect dram lives to this day, in the Aberlour distillery.

Aberlour A’bunadh is made in batches, and each batch is made by hand. It’s a cask strength Scotch Whisky that has achieved cult status among Whisky connoisseurs (and others). In Gaelic, A’bunadh means The Original, it’s a homage to Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming, produced using traditional methods without chill filtration or other modern processes. This fantastic Speysider was matured in Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts, and comes with an exceedingly high ABV. Powerful, POWERFUL.

Ratings & Reviews
Todd
Todd,
I found this to be modest in flavor. A little water helps.
 
Michael
Michael,
Cherry, sherry, and fruit perfection. It's like liquid dessert. This is one of my all-time favorite scotches, hands down.
 
John
John,
Great scotch good flavor with notes of caramel.
 
Brian
Brian,
A great scotch, extremely complex. Very fruity on the nose. Starting on the palette you feel like you're drinking brandy, with heavy grape and fruity notes. The transition to more traditional scotch notes follow, with a finish of cinnamon, caramel, and fruit cake.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Wonderful sherried scotch from perhaps my favorite Scotish distillery
 
Michael
Michael,
Now this is the bomb! Super impressed by the nose: caramel, vanilla and a hint of turpentine (just kidding, but it does have a wisp of strength to it.) Superb dram!

Fabulous and everything I expected in a quality scotch. The finish is very satisfying for the ABV and the smoothness is the best feature. This will be hard not to make my go to.

Joshua
Joshua,
For 60%ABV , this is very smooth. Honey flavor right off the sip, long sweetness lingers, touch of smoke.
 
Doug
Doug,
Rocket fuel! Good with a bit of water or an ice cube to tone it down a bit. Nice spice. The lingering flavor for me is the oak and it feels a bit dry on the tail end.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Hands down the best whisky/whiskey I've tried to date (granted, I've only about 3 years of experience). I wish I could find this one more often locally. If I could only pick one whiskey to take with me on a deserted island, this is it. The richness from the cask strength gives this Highland a lot of notes you'd typically get in a solid bourbon. Excellent.

Nicholas,
Each batch seems ever so slightly different, but the high proof sherry cask finished flavors are lovely. There's a bit of a kick due to the high ABV.

Fantastic sherry bomb.
 
Michael
Michael,
This scotch is hands down "my drink". Have I had "better/more expensive" scotch? Sure, but Aberlour for me is everything I ever wanted in a drink, and definitely the brand I would choose if I could only choose one.
