Aberlour Scotch Whisky Review

Aberlour is a single-malt Scotch whisky from Strathspey, Scotland. It sits comfortably within the top ten Scotch single malt sold worldwide.

It is the most popular single malt in France, a quiet claim, as France drinks more whisky than any other country. While Glen Grant Distillery was sold to Campari Group in 2005, Pernod Ricard controlled the Glenlivet and Aberlour single malt whisky brands. 

The whisky itself could be regarded as a more traditional style, as every release in its portfolio uses sherry casks to some extent in the maturation process. The range includes ten -, 12, 16-, and 18-year-olds and a small-batch cask strength release called A’bunadh. The A’bunadh stands out in the range not only because it is bottled at cask strength but also because it is aged entirely in oloroso sherry casks.

A’Bunadh batch 42

Sherry-casked single malts don’t get much bigger than this. Bold and spicy, with notes of dark chocolate, fruitcake, marzipan, and macerated fruit.
