Dense fruit cake…
Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch 76
Well, well, well Batch 76. Who would have thought it? This longstanding cask strength, richly flavoured, sherry matured malt has been a mainstay on the Australian whisky scene for well over 20 years. And for most that that it rarely has missed a beat.
And even after 80 batches, the same or similar formula is still used to great applause from A’bunadh devotees (me included): Oloroso sherry butts and bottled at cask strength.
From a well-known retailer, “Dense fruit cake, well fed with sherry and packed with sultanas, followed by zesty marmalade and gingerbread. Dried fruit and spices linger for an age with sweet crumble, dustings of cocoa, and a touch of pepper in tow”.
