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 61.2%. Powerful, POWERFUL.

Ratings & Reviews
Greg
Greg,
A’bunadh is a delicious full flavor dram that carries the oloroso fruit notes well. The cask strength abv is not for the faint of heart nor the novice. Best with a splash of spring water to open up the complexity of flavors and temper the “heat.” Enjoy with friends for a tasting as a late offering. Goes nicely with rich dark chocolate (72%+) or a Montecristo Robusto.

Smooth and mild with just a hint of the cask. It goes great after a heavy meal or with a cigar.

Paul,
A good whiskey, but the bottle I had was not as fantastic as some of the other Aberlour bottles I have had.

Fredrik,
This is my favourite scotch. The body and smokeiness together make up one hell of a dram. A must have.
