Twice destroyed by fire the current Aberlour distillery was designed by Charles Doig in 1898. The biggest selling single malt in France, Aberlour is owned by Pernod Ricard and uses unusually broad based stills with high swan necks to produce a delicate berry flavoured spirit.

Although it has no age statement, A'Bunadh is released in limited run batches, each batch carrying a unique number on its label. Each batch of this whisky is blended from barrels ranging from 5 to 25 years old.

A’Bunadh is exclusively aged in Spanish oak Oloroso sherry butts and therefore has a sweeter, softer flavour than most Scotch. At one time, sherry casks were universally used for maturing Scotch whisky.

The word A’Bunadh is roughly translated into English from Gaelic as "original."

Cask Type: First fill Oloroso Sherry Butt

59.8% ABV / 70cl

Batch Number: 11

Please examine the images of the bottle, packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
