Just curious - what is the age range for A'bunadh? I assume that, because it doesn't state it on the bottle, that it is a vatting of various vintages. But does anyone have a breakdown of what's the oldest, the newest, the percentages, etc?jimidrammer wrote:From a cost perspective the 10 at half the price or the A'bunadh at the same price really leaves the 15 in an unique position of being lost in the middle in character. The extra five years over the 10 OB didn't seem to add too much to the profile and the lower abv took away the kick of the A'bunadh.
