Aberlour A'Bunadh Alba
Aberlour // Speyside, Scotland
Aberlour A'Bunadh Alba is a no-age statement cask strength single malt release for the Speyside distillery. However, unlike Aberlour A'Bunadh which matures exclusively in ex-sherry casks, Aberlour A'Bunadh Alba matures in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. A'bunadh means "of the origin" and Alba refers to the American oak (Quercus Alba) which is used here. This is a US exclusive release with availability beginning September 2019.
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.
