A gorgeous, heavily Sherried Speyside Single Malt exploding with power and flavor.

There is some question about the exact date of its founding. But we know for certain that James Fleming either built, or rebuilt the Aberlour Distillery in 1879. We also know that Aberlour makes an amazing range of Highland Single Malts in the classic Speyside style and we’d gladly sample anything they send our way. And their Whiskies win lots of awards, taking home medals in every serious industry competition they enter.

We read a LOT of Whisky reviews. Seriously… The things we do for you people! Anyway, whenever we’re comparing notes with our fellow Whisky-experts, no matter how great a dram is there’s always some bloke who doesn’t like it and let’s everyone know in no uncertain terms. Until now. Because we haven’t found anyone who doesn’t love Aberlour A'bunadh Batch 55. It’s a regularly scheduled, limited edition release of gorgeous Highland Single Malt aged exclusively in Oloroso Sherry casks and bottled at nearly cask strength. Batch #55 comes in at a powerful 60.9% ABV bursting with savory flavor.

Smartass corner: 
The Aberlour labels claim they were founded in 1879. But a distillery named Aberlour has been located on the same site since 1826. The official company “legend” goes all the way back to the Druids, but skips the distillery’s 18th century history and picks it up again in the 1900s. I suspect a bit of legal wrangling.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Aberlour specialized in producing Scotch Whiskies for the French market for decades. Some say that's why their single malt has a distinct, Cognac-like character to this day.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
