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 at 60.1%. Powerful, POWERFUL.

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

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.
