I voted Nadurra. The Glenfarclas is very hot to me without lots of water which kind of defeats the purpose. A'bunadh can have an inconsistent sulpher note. The Nadurra has been a refreshing spearmint breeze that takes Glenlivet to a whole new level.
I've had many a'bunadh, several Nadurra, and a few 105. Give me the a'bunadh. I prefer the marzipan, caramel, oranges of the a'bunadh to the tropical fruits of Nadurra. Other than the very first batches of 105, it just doesn't compare in quality for me.
This is really difficult. I can say that I would reach for the Abunadh before the 105 if I was only going to pour one, but then the 105 is a good session dram. I think Ganga is right though the Abunadh is the better of the sherried drams. So that leaves the Nadurra vs the Abunadh. Two different styles that I would go for according to mood. I couldn't say that I like one more than another but I think on balance I might reach for the Glenlivet a little more often than the Aberlour. Nadurra it is then.
Super difficult.. I like the Nadurra a lot, it's an easy going and always good dram. 105 never did it for me even if I'm totally big on sherry but it always seemed very 2 dimensional, don't know why... maybe I didn't drink enough of it I voted A'bunadh because of its versatility (water or not water ?) and all the different batches that I have fun to compare
Two reasons. I can find some great sherried whisky's other than a'bunadh relatively easily to have as a substitute. But the profile of the Nadurra is to me more unique, in the best possible way, and I would reach for this bottle more often. Hang on did that end up being three reasons?
I would always like to have a bottle of both of these at home. Two of the best whisky I've had.
Voted A'bunadh. But it's only because the macallan 10 years cask stregnht is missing! (it would be nice if glendronach give us an official cask strenght release. But the single cask are already very very good)
I can't choose between the A'bunadh and Nadurra (I feel the Glenfarclas isn't up to scratch with A'bunadh and Nadurra around) due to them being completely different whiskies (albeit from the same region) i.e one is wholly Sherry matured, the other Bourbon. Both are great and need to be put ito perspective.
Lets see what we'd get with Nadurra Sherryfied and A'bunadh Bourbonised
