Aberlour a’bunadh

Aberlour abundadhAberlour a’bunadh. A unique single malt from the Speyside region. Cask strength, 60% ABV, non-chill filtered.   Dark amber reflecting the double finish in sherry casks.  Not surprisingly, a sweet nose, sherry and orange.   On the palate, there is the anticipated  sweetness with surprisingly complex spicy notes. A nice lingering finish.

I really like the playfullness of this scotch.  It provides a fun contrast to the smoky peaty malts.  A very nice after dinner dram.
