I've had the pleasure of tasting two A'bunadhs before and they were batch 12 and 17 - both of which failed to impress me as I thought of them as "trying too hard". Back then I felt they had an obvious sherry character (of course) but they also reminded me of a small batch bourbon with caramelised wood sugars and astringency. So how's batch 25 then? Very Good!
Sherry nutiness, a faint trace of rubber, burnt oak and young spirit.
Oh, this is good and much better than the last time around; sherry nutiness, pickled fruit, intense but not in a bad way. Although I think the sherry masks the gristy character it's still slightly "fatty" - which is good enough for me. It seems a lot less bourbony than batch 12 and 17 - and that's definately a good thing.
Nutiness stays on for a while but doesn't "cling" to the throat like the rum I just had.
A much more pleasant experience than the previous two times. This one feels much more composed. It's a great whisky!
