The Third Dram wrote:Aberlour a'bunadh Batch No. 27
Not a batch I ever got to try. Any good?
I had some misgivings prior to opening it, largely owing to Jim Murray's commentary concerning it containing "more than the odd dud sherry butt". (And don't we know about JM's ultra sensitivity to and raging against tainted - i.e. 'contaminated' with sulphur - Sherry oak.)
Truth be told, I did initially notice a very slight and uncharacteristic sharpness, which one might interpret as beyond the normal a'bunadh high-alcohol 'snap'. But from that point on, the contents of the bottle have revealed a sweet richness that's spot-on.
