A'Bunadh [a-BOON-arh] is a single malt whisky that is aged solely in Spanish oak oloroso sherry butts. A'Bunadh means "Original" in Gaelic and this was designed as a replica to a whisky produced at this distillery in the late 1800s. As this is produced in batches and bottled at cask strength, the alcohol percentage will vary.

Tasting Notes

"As expected, there are loads of sherry wine aromas, but banana and ginger are found as well. As this is cask strength, one should add a few drops of water for the tasting profile to expand. A closed wood spiced taste will develop into sweet berry-licious flavors in no time."
