Aberlour A’Bunadh Highland Single Malt Single Cask (Scotland)


Another Scotch aged in oloroso sherry casks, it's voluptuous and smooth despite formidable 60.3-per-cent alcohol. Expect flavours of caramel, fig and raisin along with chocolate, culminating in a satisfyingly dry finish. I normally like a splash of water to tame cask-strength whiskies, but this one seemed paradoxically to get hotter. It's nice straight.
