2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Aberlour A'bunadh Batch 52 Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Scotland), 59% abv, $70.00

98
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Peppery acetic acid and new leather notes fade into cedar, cigar box, and forest floor in this pungent, expressive cask-strength bottling. Firm and meaty on the palate, the dried fruit aspects transition to clove, nutmeg, saffron, and a veil of wood varnish.
