Aberlour // Highlands, Scotland
Aberlour Distillery was founded in 1879 by James Flemming and this sherry matured single malt is made in homage to him. The name A’Bunadh [a-BOON-arh] means “original” in Gaelic and the single malt was designed as a replica to a whisky produced at this distillery in the late 1800s. A’Bunadh is matured exclusively in Spanish oloroso sherry casks and it’s bottled at cask strength.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"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."
